XMI (XML Metadata Interchange) is an advance in XML technology thatenables you to represent objects in XML, exchange those objectswith other software tools, and exploit modeling technology in yourXML applications. Mastering XMI includes examples written in Javathat demonstrate practical techniques for using XMI with both XMLand UML. Also included is a discussion of how IBM is using XMI inits latest software development tools.
The authors cover the basics first, detailing the essential XML andUML concepts that you need to know to understand XMI. In additionto XMI fundamentals, they explain how XMI works with the ModelDriven Architecture (MDA), a new software developmentapproach.
After learning how XMI works, you will then learn how to:
Use XMI to express your object-oriented software models inXML
Generate Java implementation classes from your models using theXMI Framework
Create and read XMI documents in Java with standard XML APIs (DOMand SAX) and the XMI Framework
Reverse engineer models from XML documents, DTDs, andschemas
The CD-ROM includes:
The XMI Framework
IBM(r) XML4J XML Parser
A trial version of IBM(r) WebSphere(r) Studio ApplicationDeveloper
