Ability to use path map variable or classpath of the project with the Java visualization.

UML models (*.emx-files) and class diagrams (*.dnx-files) should be independent from the project in which they were created.Using Path map variable or the classpath of the current project to resolve Java types could help to achieve this.

Cannot reconnect communication paths on deployment diagrams

RSA should allow users to reconnect communication paths from one node to another on a deployment diagram. Currently, the "Reconnect not supported" message appears if you try to do this, RSA does not support the re-orientation of communication path...
