RAD Studio (Common)
Importing a Project in IBM Rational Rose (MDL) Format

IMPORTANT: For the MDL Import function to work, the Java Runtime Environment and the Java Development Kit must be installed, and the paths in the jdk.config file must correctly point to your JDK/JRE directory. See the first step below

To create a design project on the base of an IBM Rational Rose (MDL) project:

  1. Open [RAD Studio]5.0/bin/plugins/mdlimport/jdk.config and modify the javahome and addpath statements to reflect the relative path from the jdk.config file to your JKD/JRE installation. For example,

javahome ../../../../../../../jdk1.4.2/jre
addpath ../../../../../../../jdk1.4.2/lib/tools.jar

Note: The path to the JDK/JRE should be without quotation marks.
Save the file and open RAD Studio.
  1. On the main menu, choose FileNewOther. The New Project dialog box opens.
  2. From the Project Types pane, choose Design Project.
  3. From the Templates pane, choose Convert from MDL template.
  4. Enter the project name, location and other parameters as required by the New Project dialog box.
  5. Click OK.
  6. In the Project from MDL wizard, specify the source .mdl, .ptl, .cat, or .sub file using the Add button.
  7. Specify the scale factor and conversion options.
  8. Click Finish.
Result: A new design project is created in the specified location.
