Eclipse Process Framework (EPF) XML Schema

The EPF XML Schema defines and documents the structure and content of an EPF XML file that can be used to store and exchange UMA-based method content and processes. EPF Composer will have the ability to import/export such XML files. Third party vendors are encouraged to use the XML import feature to migrate their method content, presumably stored in some proprietary format, to a UMA-based method library.
