First, [http://www.eclipse.org/modeling/mdt/downloads/?project=uml2tools install] UML2Tools and its dependencies to your Eclipse platform. To check that UML2Tools feature is installed correctly go to Help/About Eclipse SDK, in the appeared dialog press 'Feature Details' button, feature with id 'org.eclipse.uml2tools' should present at the list. If so then New Diagram wizards are available in the 'New/Other/UML 2.1 Diagrams' wizard group. Then you may create diagram by your choice.

=== Which GMF version is used to generate UML2Tools source code? ===
+
==Updates==
UML2Tools diagrams use 'fresh' GMF. Source code is regenerated with up-to-date GMF on every significant change in GMF and on milestone. It is so because GMF provides more and more features with every iteration. However, some amount of custom code exists in this project. This code is put into 'custom-src' folder or marked with '@generated-not' tag. Note that we use 'Generate UML2Tools Diagrams' action in the context menu of *.gmfgen files to generate code. This action is available if you have GMF-sources checked out in your development workspace.
+
* [[MDT-UML2Tools/Updates|UML2 Tools Updates]]
 
+
=== Where can I find GMF-sources? ===
+
GMF-sources (GMF files from which java-code is generated) are located in Eclipse CVS:
+
 
+
cvs -d pserver:dev.eclipse.org:/cvsroot/modeling co org.eclipse.mdt/org.eclipse.uml2tools/plugins/org.eclipse.uml2.diagram.def .
+
 
+
=== What metamodel do UML2Tools use? ===
+
UML2Tools use an EMF-based implementation of the UML™ 2.x metamodel for the Eclipse platform from [http://wiki.eclipse.org/MDT-UML2 UML2 project].
+
 
+
=== What are *.uml and *.umlclass_diagram files for? ===
+
UML2Tools diagram is presented by two files in the file system - domain model file (*.uml) and diagram file (*.umlclass_diagram, *.umlstatemachine_diagram). This is a standard for GMF-generated diagram editors. More information on [http://wiki.eclipse.org/GMF GMF page].
+
 
+
=== Can I restore diagram from semantic model (*.uml file)? ===
+
Yes, it's easy. To 'visualize' diagram from *.uml file use 'Initialize umlclass_diagram diagram file' action from the context menu of the file. There are also actions to initialize Component, Activity or State Machine diagram, choose the one you need. Appropriate diagram file (*.umlclass_diagram, *.umlcomponent_diagram etc) will be created and then open. This feature is provided by GMF.
+
 
+
== Samples ==
+
Figures from UML2 specifications are implemented using UML2Tools. They are used to visually demonstrate UML2Tools capabilities. These samples are available in Eclipse CVS:
+
 
+
cvs -d pserver:dev.eclipse.org:/cvsroot/modeling co org.eclipse.mdt/org.eclipse.uml2tools/examples/
+
 
+
== Newsgroups / Mailing Lists ==

The best way to find an answer to your questions and to offer your suggestions is to write it in [http://www.eclipse.org/modeling/mdt/newsgroup-mailing-list.php eclipse.modeling.mdt.uml2tools newsgroup].
