Working with modules

Some functionnalities are brought by specific modules (Teamwork, code generation, etc.). Modules are addons that can be plugged to Modelio, the modeling tool, to extends its capabilities.

Example: to generate Java code from a UML model, you need to deploy the Java Designer module.

Where can I get Modelio modules?

Modelio modules can be downloaded from the Modelio online store or directly from the Modules catalog.

To access the Modules catalog, go to the tool menu Configuration -> Modules catalog...

The Modules catalog shows the list of modules present on your Modelio configuration and which can be used in your projects. You can search for new versions of these modules or for new modules by clicking on the Check for new versions... button. Note that only compatible modules will be suggested. The Modules version checker window will open.
