Export of Models
- Add our gadget to a wave, choose one of our six modeling languages and create a model of your choice.
- Click on the new "Export to the Oryx editor" button in the toolbar.
- A new tab opens that should show the created model inside the Oryx editor. At this time, you are able to export the model in various data formats: XPDL, RDF, ERDF, BPMN 2.0 DI XML or JSON. The options that are available are shown in the export menu in the Oryx toolbar on the right.
- For more export formats like PDF or PNG, you need to save the model into your personal model repository, first. However, saving via the save button only works for logged in users. Therefore, please open a new browser tab and visit http://oryx-project.org/backend/poem/repository. You will see the global repository with public models created by Oryx users and shared with the world. To log in, enter your OpenID in the top right corner of the page. If you don't have an OpenID yet, you can get a free one here: www.getopenid.com
- Once you are logged in, return to the tab with your model from 3. Now, you can click the save button, enter a name for the model, and save it to your personal process repository. When you return to http://oryx-project.org/backend/poem/repository and refresh the site, it should now show your new model. Of course, your model is by default not shared with anyone else and can only be accessed from your OpenID account.
- If you now select your model by clicking on it, you can find various export options at the bottom left corner of the site. Click on one of the links, like SVG, PDF, PNG to export your diagram in these graphics formats.
Import of Models
- Go to http://oryx-project.org/backend/poem/repository and login with your OpenID. Now, you can see all models that you have access to.
- Click on the model you want to import to the processWave.org editor. Make sure that the model is public by checking the access rights in the top right corner. At the moment, it is only possible to import public models to the Wave, so if your model is not public yet, click on the publishing icon.
- When you are sure the model is public, double-click on the model to open it in the Oryx editor. Look for the export menu in the Oryx toolbar and choose "ProcessWave This!".
- A new window opens that asks for permission to create a new wave. Click "continue".
- The new wave with the title "Oryx Model Export" is shown and contains a processWave.org editor gadget with your model. You can now rename the wave, invite friends to model collaboratively or even export the model back to your Oryx repository via the export button.
