     The OMG has created XMI, the XML Metadata Interchange format,
which allows UML models and objects built on MOF to be transported
in an XML syntax.  The base MOF concepts and the base RDF concepts
(statements, propertyNames, types) are fairly close.

     There is a library for application writers that need to
create or parse-and-read XMI documents located at

     More about XMI, and about the OMG's plans for using
XML more broadly, are at http://www.omg.org/xml "CORBA & XML
Resource Page".
