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
Although MDT/UML2 provides the metamodel, it does not provide UML modelling tools themselves. One implementation is MDT/Papyrus. An older, no longer supported implementation is MDT-UML2Tools.
