Import XMI from PEAR\PHP_UML not working (unknown exporter)

Hello,

I am trying to import XMI generated from PEAR\PHP_UML (http://pear.php.net/manual/en/package.php.php-uml.php) into VP-UML Modeller Edition. It fails with the message “Unknown exporter PEAR\PHP_UML”.

I attached a sample XMI file (two classes, “$ phpuml Domain/Factory/ -o /var/tmp/”). I there something wrong with the XMI or does VP-UML only accept XMI from pre-defined exporters?

Best regards,
Thomas

Hello Thomas,

I would like to let you know the fail to import XMI problem has been fixed and please run the VP Suite Update to update the software to latest patch (sp1_20110709e or later). Details about update to latest patch can be found at

Feel free to contact me if you require any further information.

Best regards,

Hello Rain,

thank you very much for the patch, the initial import is working now. What I am trying to achieve is the following:

  • import XMI => I have classes in VP
  • create a class model diagram (with color coding maybe)
  • update the code in my IDE
  • create a new XMI-export
  • import that XMI in my VP-project => model elements get merged with elements from XMI

Currenty I get the error “Unknown exporter PEAR\PHP_UML” when I try to merge the new XMI into my VP-project. Is that event possible?

I guess that is what the Standard Edition is good for. “Instant reverse engineering” works as expected on initial import, but when I try to update my model from modified source code, my layout modifications on the model get lost (tested with background color). Is there a way to preserve presentation attributes on my model?

Best regards,
Thomas

Can’t get to work even the initial Import.

I only get the “[warning 14:49:03]Unknown Exporter: PEAR\PHP_UML]” Message (running Build 20111023)

Would you mind send me your XMI file to have a look?

Rain
