Pinned topic Convert ER diagram (overview diagram) to class diagram ?

‏2011-05-06T08:20:10Z |
Hi,

I have RSA 8.0.1.

I have created some ER diagrams (overview diagrams) in RSA.

Is it possible to convert these to class diagrams ?

    Hi,

    In order to convert your Physical data Model to UML Model, you need to transform first your Physical Data Model (PDM) to Logical Data Model (LDM).
    Once your have a Logical Data Model, then you can transform it into a UML model using the Logical Data Model (LDM) to UML Model Transformation (the UML Model to Logical Data Model transformation is possible as well).
    The UML to LDM transformation is available in RSA 8.0.x if you have installed the InfoSphere Data Architect integration option feature.
    On the other end, LDM to UML, LDM to PDM and PDM to LDM transformations are only available if you have installed InfoSphere Data Architect. This is a separate product (offering).
    See: Link http://www-01.ibm.com/software/data/optim/data-architect/

    I hope this helps.

    The product IBM InfoSphere Data Architect contains transforms from Logical Data Model to UML models:

    http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/rdahelp/v7r5/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.datatools.transform.ldm.uml2.doc/topics/ctransform_ldm2uml.html

    and from Physical Data Models to Logical Data Models:

    http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/rdahelp/v7r5/topic/com.ibm.datatools.transform.ui.doc/topics/ctransform_phys.html

    When you create a ER diagram in RSA, it belongs in a Physical Data Model.

    i can't download infosphere data Architect from this link http://www-01.ibm.com/software/data/optim/data-architect.... it is asking the company name as being the student i do not have company so please help me to download the software..... thanks in advance
