MDG Integration brings many of the benefits and rich modeling power of Enterprise Architect and UML 2.5 to Microsoft Visual Studio 2013.

Intuitive navigation and editing of the model is provided directly inside the IDE using the EA Project Explorer. At the click of a button, MDG Integration allows you to reverse engineer and generate .NET code from UML elements using EA's template driven Code Engineering Framework. Reporting and documentation is also covered, with high-quality rich text and web-based document generation built-in. With support for MDA transformations, Baseline management and Engineering of key XML based technologies, MDG Integration provides the functionality required of a fully fledged modeling platform right inside Visual Studio.

NOTE: The MDG Integration for Visual Studio add-in doesn't currently support Visual Studio 2017.
The built-in Project Import functionality introduced in EA 14 however does allow for import of Visual Studio 2017 projects. See ribbon: Code > Import > Project.
