[TransWarp] Basic Concepts for using XMI/UML/etc

Hi Phillip,

after i implemented a fairly simple stateful workflow i found that this is not 
sufficient for my needs. after some researches, the StateMachines of UML
would fit the requirements much more.
the UML-metamodel specifies all elements of a statemachine and i could load 
them via a XMI file.

the generated peak.metamodel elements do not have any implementation. 
i wanted to ask how you expect to make use of e.g. uml elements, 
imported via xmi.

will you advise somehow the imported elements to give them behaviour
(on the fly or after you generated code from xmi)?
or do you expect to "interpret" the information you get from the imported

is the current state of the metamodels package usefull for anything right
now that i could play with e.g. implementing the logic for a statemachine
that "executes" the uml-defined information.

thanks for your infos
