Convert Rational XDE to InfoSphere Data Architect

Current version: 2.2

Important to know

The TOOLBUS Interface for IBM Rational Data Architect (RDA) and IBM Rational XDE enables the conversion of Logical and Physi cal Data Models from Rational XDE to RDA:
1. UML Class Diagrams from Rational XDE c an be converted to Logical Data Models for RDA (ldm files): UML Classes, Generalizations/Specializations, Associations, Attributes and Global Domains are mapped to Entities, Subtype Relationships, Relationships, Attributes and Domains in Ra tional Data Architect. The layout of the XDE Class Diagrams is maintained in the Data Model Diagrams of RDA.
2. Data Models from Rational XDE can be c onverted to Database Models for RDA (dbm files): Databases, Tables, Columns, and other relational database objects are converted to Rational Data Architect. The la yout of the XDE Data Model Diagrams is maintained in the Database Schema Diagrams of RDA.
3. Domain Packages from Rational XDE c an be converted to Domain Models for RDA (ddm files), which are linked to Logical Data Models and Database Models in RDA.

Conversion Process

The TOOLBUS Interface uses the API functi ons of the Rational XDE Extensions (RXE) and additional API functions of the Rational XDE SDK to read XDE models, and the Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF) to create ldm, dbm and ddm files for RDA.


The TOOLBUS Interface for Rational Data Architect and Rational XDE requires Microsoft Windows 2000 or Micros oft Windows XP, and it supports IBM Rational Data Architect 6.1 and IBM Rational XDE 2003.
