XML Metadata Interchange (XMI)

The purpose of XMI is to enable easy interchange of metadata between UML-based modeling tools and MOF-based metadata repositories in distributed heterogeneous environments. XMI integrates three industry standards:

  1. XML - eXtensible Markup Language, a W3C standard. See .
  2. UML - Unified Modeling Language, an OMG modeling standard. See .
  3. MOF - Meta Object Facility, an OMG meta-modeling and metadata repository standard. See .

The integration of these three standards into XMI allows developers of distributed systems to share object models and other metadata.

This book covers both issues. Managers at all levels of all organizations must be aware of both the changes that we are now seeing and ways to deal with issues created by those changes.
