XMI extension of the XML standard provides flexibility in writing software for sharing data. This book provides programmers with the information needed to utilize this extension. It explains how XMI relates to XML and UM and shows how to program with XMI, including how to express data in XMI, create XMI documents with Java, and merge documents.
