Subject: RE: ebXML Representtion of Metadata
<SNIP> Sridhar did a presentation on XMI in Brussels. I hope I'm not miss quoting - but XMI is still a technology in development. My sense is that it will take a year or there abouts to get all the kinks worked out. Also XMI is serving a different purpose and mission in life - more allied to UML and that case/modelling world. <SNIP> While XMI certainly had PART of its roots in the world of UML - another part was in metadata management per se. It's use in the OMG data warehousing standard (guess what OMG was NOT known for data warehousing either 2 years ago) is a very good example of its richness for very serious enterprise environment. I have to agree that XMI is a technology in development - so is XML, XML Schema etc. P.S (I was not there in Brussels so some one else may have presented XMI!). Continued meeting of the minds of EDI experts and OMG metadata experts can only serve both communities well. So to summarize : XMI is not just for exchanging UML models.
