I'm not sure about the latest version of XMI for interchange; however, googling for << SysML Poseidon >> gets several hits that seem to indicate that Poseidon can import an XMI description of SysML, and hence it will support SysML. (I don't understand how graphics are interchanged.) This is probably true for any UML editor that is keeping up with UML and XMI, but I'm learning as I go. See for example, http://homepages.nildram.co.uk/~esukpc20/exff2005_05/exff_legacy/docs/sy sml_ap233_assembly.html I assume the port java/poseidon is the "community edition" of Poseidon, i.e. the free and somewhat stripped down edition. (http://gentleware.com/edcompare.0.html) I take it you find it adequate. Does the port depend on any particular GUI? Is the performance ok under FreeBSD's Java? I found the following list of UML editors useful http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_UML_tools The following link has interesting comments/opinions on this topic: http://plg.uwaterloo.ca/~migod/uml.html It in turn has a link to one vendor's idea of a list of criteria for a UML editing tool: http://www.objectsbydesign.com/tools/modeling_tools.html. Any other recommendations for a UML editor? Anyone using UML to specify/model a large system to be developed under FreeBSD? Anyone been able to generate executable code from UML under FreeBSD? -gayn Bristol Systems Inc. 714/532-6776 www.bristolsystems.com _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
