This is defined as a UML Class Diagram (part of which I have attached) maintained using Enterprise Architect, which can export into XMI format.  I hoped there might be a way to load the XMI directly into Smalltalk classes.  Manually implementing the inheritance structure is straight forward, and I've developed a template for the aggregate relationships but an automated function would help to assure correctness, consistency and to track changes in the model.

Hi btc

In Moose on VW long time ago we implemented everything to load XMI, we had an emof reader that (I'm not sure anymore) was generating FAMIX classes.
May be you should ask on the Moose mailing-list. I could check on our old store but I should find somewhere how to connect to it.
