Menthor Editor and Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect (EA)
Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect is a commercial CASE tool for UML modeling. If you are a user (by choice or necessity), but want to benefit from Menthor Editor's features (ontology validation, documentation and implementation), we developed a plug-in for you and a component to import your EA models in our tool.
OntoUML plugin for EA
We developed an OntoUML plug-in for Enterprise Architect v10 that provides a toolbox with all the elements of the language and a set of modeling patterns to speed up the modeling process. You won't get, however, the automatic syntax verification.
Export from EA, Import in Menthor Editor
If you use our OntoUML plug-in to build your ontologies using Enterprise Architect, you will easily be able to import everything into Menthor Editor and take advantage of our numerous feature for validation, documentation and implementation.
If you are new to the ontology world, you might not know this, but ontologies tend to increase in size fast. So, if you have a big ontology built using Enterprise Architect, you will be able to import it in Menthor Editor only the elements you need. You can choose between package and diagram importations, which will make your job a lot easier.
Menthor Editor and Eclipse
Your OntoUML model is not and should not be seen as just documentation of your domain. It contains powerful semantics that can be put to good use. An important one is to generate specifications in other languages, in order for you to transform your ontology into an application. That is what the Code generation component on Menthor Editor is for!
