In the previous versions of Rational Software Architect (RSA), there was a very good feature called "Project Interchange" which was used for exporting and importing RSA projects easily between workspaces. In the current RSA version (V8.0), this feature is removed, and is replaced by the following: 1. For Exporting the projects, select: Export --> General --> Archive File . 2. For importing the projects, select: Import --> General --> Existing Projects into Workspace and then choosing "Select archive file" .
