News about new Architecture Update:
EclipseUML 2.2 for Eclipse 3.5 Galileo is using the latest UML 2.2 OMG

- are not integrated with java or with java annotations and
therefore have no real modeling value.
The Core Architecture is now based on UML IDs (EclipseUML 2012) and
anymore on JDT IDs using tags in the code (e.g. tools using tags
are EclipseUML 2007, eUML or
previous EclipseUML builds).
This new architecture is important for advanced MDA, DSL and UML
Modeling with a native UML 2.2 metamodel integration.
