UML2 is an EMF-based implementation of the Unified Modeling Language (UML) 2.x OMG metamodel for the Eclipse platform.

The objectives of the UML2 component are to provide

  • a useable implementation of the UML metamodel to support the development of modeling tools
  • a common XMI schema to facilitate interchange of semantic models
  • test cases as a means of validating the specification
  • validation rules as a means of defining and enforcing levels of compliance

Frequently Asked Questions



General Information




Sadly there appears to be almost no user level documentation on using UML2 under eclipse for creating UML diagrams. Lars Vogel has a selection of good eclipse guides including this one on UML: http://www.vogella.de/articles/UML/article.html

Here is somewhere to collect information about Using UML2


(None of these talks are viewable unless you have Internet Explorer)

  • UML2 Long Talk - Slides from "What do YOU want UML to be?" long talk at EclipseCon 2007.
  • UML2 Short Talk - Slides from "What's New in UML2?" short talk at EclipseCon 2006.
