Export a BPSim Configuration

When you have defined a BPSim Configuration in a model, you can export it to an XMI file to be imported into other projects. The BPMN 2.0 model on which the configuration is based is also exported with the configuration. This binds the model to the appropriate BPSim Configuration when you import the XMI file into another project.

Keyboard Shortcuts
