UML Profile screen capture showing meta modelThe CBDI-SAE Meta Model for SOA provides a robust set of metadata that supports the entire service lifecycle. A UML Profile is a mechanism that allows existing UML tools such as Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect, No Magic's MagicDraw and Rational Software's Rational Software Modeler to immediately begin using a language that extends the UML with additional semantics and notation in a standard, shareable manner.

Making the CBDI-SAE Meta Model for SOA available as a UML Profile enables users to model SOA design and architecture using diagrams that are UML compliant. The Profile provides a set of structured model elements that are customized to support the SAE implementation of SOA. This allows organizations to follow the CBDI-SAE methodology and guidance in any UML compliant tool.
