Message It would be interesting to see what Rose's output looks like. Could you send me (mailto:curta at hyprotech dot com) a sample XMI from Rose 2K and also a sample of the output from ArgoUML 0.71?

I've been able to successfully read in Rose files produced by IBM's XMI Toolkit to Rose 98 and Microsoft Visual Modeler. What types of messages were you getting from Rose 2K?

I think that changing Rose's DTD will just dork things.

Phew.

I managed to get argo-nsuml, get the related jars, compile it up and get it
started! New diagrams ! Yippe!

Using this version, I saved a new model and tried to use the Rose 2K XMI import
.... after supplying the uml13.dtd file, rose failed to read the file [with no
errors!] :-(

So, I tried another suggestion - use the IBM "xmialpha" toolkit to convert to
and from Rose mdl files and xmi files [more classpath problems, xmialpha
requires swing 1.0.3]. This uses uml11i.dtd BTW.

I managed to convert a rose file to an xmi file and back to a rose file okay,
but I still couldn't do much with the argouml files. I could generate a rose
file using the IBM toolkit, but rose failed to read this in.

Rose uses an xmi module written by Unisys, this has a "uml.dtd".


Curt Arnold suggested using the IBM toolkit to validate the xmi files produced
by argouml. Anyone got any ideas how to do this?


I do have Rose 2k to hand, so if anyone wants some sample Rose outputs, then I
can provide.


Hmmm ... I'm not at all sure what to try next. Could I, for example, replace
Rose's uml.dtd file with arouml's uml13.dtd file and export the rose model?

Cheers,

Pete
