.xmi File Extension

Developer: Object Management Group
File type: XML Metadata Interchange File/Extended MIDI File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .xmi. Files with the file extension .xmi can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .xmi files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .xmi file?

Files with the .xmi extension are commonly known as XML Metadata Interchange Files and as Extended MIDI Files. These files are called XML Metadata Interchange Files because they are created using a popular format used to exchange UML diagrams. These files function as storage of information about model designs as well as they are also used to transfer these design information from software to another. On the other hand, these files are also called Extended MIDI Files because they contain standard MIDI files in different variations. Compared to MIDI files, .xmi files are smaller and require no further information about timing. Although these are considered audio files, they do not refer to actual audio information. Aside from these two common uses of .xmi files, some applications such as EverQuest File, Winamp Extended MIDI File, and a lot more are also associated with it. These files are also commonly opened with No Magic MagicDraw, Eclipse IDE for Java Developers, Liquid Technologies Liquid XML Studio, Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect, Nullsoft Winamp Media Player 5.6, FMJ-Software Awave Studio, etc.

how to open a .xmi file?

Launch a .xmi file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .xmi file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .xmi files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .xmi file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .xmi file will open the correct application.

Eclipse IDE for Java Developers with GMF plug-in

Eclipse IDE for Java Developers with GMF plug-in

IDE for Java Developers was developed by The Eclipse Foundation, and this software contains different tools needed for building different Java applications. This Java tool used in terms of development provides its users with editing capabilities while at the same time providing validation, cross-reference, Mylyn and code assist among others. Installation of Java Runtime Environment is needed in order for this to work. Java 5 is being recommended to get optimal results. It comes with an enhanced support for debugging which includes hyperlink stepping. It also has extra “Quick Fix/Assist” support as well as refactoring. Included in the package is Mylyn which aims to have a task-focused development. The tool also has fresh feature intended for Quick Access which makes IDE navigation improved. If Graphical Modeling Framework or GMF is needed, you may install it using the Update Manager of the Europa Update Site under RCP/Plug-in Developers.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .xmi files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .xmi. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
