Unanswered question This question has not been answered yet.
Typically there has been resistance from data modelers re using UML for classic data modeling activities. Is there a data Modeling Profile in UML 2.0 that allows me to use UML for data (logical/physical) modeling. I have seen some rev. eng. capability in soem UML tools but not a profile/transformation capability that allows me to transform a class diagram into a logical/physical model using IDEF/IE notations (like Erwin does). thanks.
