An XML dialect called XMI is used to persist a UML model to a format which may be read by another tool using an XML parser. One major purpose therefore of XMI is to creat a vendor-independant persistence format for UML models.

Why XML

An excellent illustration is the thread on XMI to HTML ... if your UML tools do not provide the output you need, because it is XML, it is relatively easy to create new treatments using XSL.

For example, I could not find any free UML tools that produced tabular reports on the objects in the use-case, yet I have a common problem of needing to import these very descriptions into wordprocessor documents. Using XSL on the XMI, I could extract the information I needed and create an XHTML output ready to import into OpenOffice.org wordprocessor.

XML only means the output is flexible, that you are free to invent new uses for the XMI, or new ways to generate the XMI.
