Post subject: 'Free form diagrams not supported' error while importing emx  PostPosted: May 28, 2012 - 04:36 PM

When importing an emx file generated from another tool into MyEclipse 10, I get an error that says 'Free form diagrams not supported. The following diagrams cannot be processed.'.

However, the same file can be imported into RSA 8 and class and sequence diagrams can be rendered. I am unable to attach the sample emx file. If you need the emx file, I can email it.

Sorry that you are seeing this issue.

Can you answer some more questions for us ?

1. Can you please share the Installation Details from MyEclipse > Installation Summary > Installation Details ? Paste them here for us.

2. Which tool was used to generate the emx file ? Please share details of its version too.

3. Clear the contents of the .log file which is located at <workspace dir>/.metadata/.log , now try importing the emx file (File > Import > UML2 > Rational EMX File (MyEclipse)) and copy paste the contents of the .log file here for us to investigate further.

4. Please send us the problematic emx to ATTN Swapna
along with a reference to this thread in the subject. If the size of the file is around 5-6 MB then please email it to

2. The emx file is generated using MaintainJ V4.0.0

3. Nothing new in Eclipse error log after opening the emx file with the reported error.

4. The emx file is simple as pasted below. It contains the uml2 elements for a method call between 2 classes. Check the attached image for the sequence diagram created in RSA from this model file (emx file).

My dev team is looking into the problem right now to see if it is something we can fix for the upcoming 10.5 release. I'm afraid I cannot suggest any work-around right now.

Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

Thanks for updating me on the status. The UML2 model file pasted above contains just the information of the model elements for sequence and class diagrams and nothing about the diagram layout. In RSA 8, this model file could be imported and RSA 8 is able to render the sequence and class diagrams. I am looking for a similar functionality in MyEclipse.

Let me know if your dev team needs any other details.
