The TeDub project's website is at http://www.tedub.net/.
The website states that: "UML diagrams can be imported as an XMI file
directly from UML drawing programs such as IBM Rational Rose or
Poseidon UML. If the UML drawing is only available in a raster graphic
format, (eg. As a bitmap) it can usually be converted into the correct
format by the TeDUB Diagram Interpretation software, which extracts the
graphical components and all the information needed for understanding
the image."
