  1. Can Poseidon export models in XMI format?
  2. How do I import .xmi files into Poseidon and what formats are supported?

    Poseidon can import XMI created by all versions of Poseidon.

    Because of the variety of .xmi formats being generated, you may encounter problems using .xmi files generated from other applications. MetaIntegrations ( makes a version of their Bridge product available that translates between XMI flavors.

    Note that the introduction of the Diagram Interchange standard will eliminate some of the barriers mentioned here. Gentleware has taken the lead in the effort to define and adopt this standard, so you can be sure that we have made a firm commitment to its implementation.

  3. Why does the source import lose attributes?
  4. Can I load Poseidon files into ArgoUML?
  5. Can Poseidon import MDL files?
  6. Opening file chooser dialog fails - "Could not bind shell folder to interface"
