This article describes the element conversion feature introduced in IBM® Rational® Software Architect Version 8.0.2. Especially in early phases of design, it is not clear exactly which modeling element to use, so you might use a UML class and later realize that you need a UML component, instead. To change it, you previously had to manually perform several steps to replace one element with another. The new element conversion feature automates all of those steps, so you save your time and reduce the chance of making mistakes associated with manual processing.
