Stereotypes provide a mechanism to extend the core language elements and add domain-specific metadata.
Apply stereotypes to core element types. An element can have multiple stereotypes. Stereotype allow you to style different elements. Stereotypes provide elements with a common set of properties, such as mass, cost, and power.
A property is a field in a stereotype. You can specify property values for each element to which the stereotype is applied.
Use properties to store quantitative characteristics, such as weight or speed, that are associated with a model element. Properties can also be descriptive or represent a status. You can view and edit the properties of each element in the architecture model using the Property Inspector.
A profile is a package of stereotypes.
You can use profiles to create a domain of specialized element types. Author profiles and apply profiles to a model using the Profile Editor. You can store stereotypes for a project in one or several profiles. When you save profiles, they are stored in XML files.
