UML Visualizations
Canonical graphical depictions + tool-specific interactions  XMI: Textual depiction in XML + text-editor interactions  Advantages
 Canonical graphical depiction common across tools
 Graphical visualizations have similar UI metaphors to
PowerPoint-style editors, but with UML semantics
 XMI projection provides textual alternative
 Disadvantages
 No standard for interaction as there is for depiction
 In some tools hard to tell where UML model end sand auxiliary models begin
 Most UML visualizations are restricted to (slight variants) of the canonical UML depiction
