If you use a UML design tool, such as Sparx Enterprise Architect, you can export your project to these tools using the XMI format. Select Connect / Export / UML. You'll be prompted to choose an export file and a number of export options. Select Export and you'll generate an xml file that can be imported by your design tool.
The export will include:
- Use cases, actors, packages and their descriptions.
- Associations between use cases and their primary and supporting actors.
- Include relationships between use cases when a use case references another in its flow of events.
- Requirements are exported as tagged values of the package that contains them. Requirements referenced from a use case are exported as tagged values of the use case.
- Classes for each definition. Fields for each definition are exported as attributes on the class. These classes can be used as a starting point for your domain analysis.
- Tagged values for use case properties, such as priority and status, which are not part of standard UML.
