Post subject: UML Modelling Details
What version of the UML spec will MyEclipse modelling tools be supporting?
And please, please, please ensure that it supports models that aren't neccessarily tied directly to code. This way we can do analysis classes, and design classes without having spurious java code hanging around all over the place.

We are still working out the partnering details with a UML tool provider and hope to provide more info very soon. We have a similar requirements as you request for basic modeling use-cases independent of a codebase. We work with a number of organizations that have adopted the agile modeling philosophy.

Will the capabilities include reading/writing Rational Rose models?
I would really welcome a way to work on Rose models without
the need to buy the whole Rational suite (of course this means
losing the functionality of other applications in the Rational Rose
suite, but also would mean no fortunes paid for Rose, and still
being able to write Rose model files, which are usable elsewhere).
I would even be willing to help with some code for it.

Rose interoperability is a good idea, just a tough one since Rose uses a proprietary format for their models. The first version we ship with UML modeling most likely will not have this capability, but it is a very good enhancement suggestion. In fact, once you see the format our tools will use perhaps a motivated user could contribute a conversion. :-)

Post subject: rose interoperability
I am currently developing a small SWT-based Explorer-like thing for navigating Rose models, and preferably making modifications later.
Unfortunately I don't have a fully implemented object model for covering the Rose objects in the file format, but it is pretty easily implementable on the mechanisms I already implemented.
Currently my code is capable of navigating the model tree, and showing different type of views on different kinds of objects.
However, to implement a full object model, I would need either an example model file covering all tricky things, and all attributes in all object types, or a full reference of the file format. Probably the first one is easier to get hold of :-)
Anyway, I think my Rose file reader is quite extensible, and the viewer is also.

That's really interesting. There might be a nice synergy here at some point. Please continue to update us on how you're progressing or any ideas you might have once our UML support is available.
