Hello Andrea,

I had the same problem recently with another kind of mdl model.
I could open a rose project with Visual Paradigm in demo mode.
Other UML tools from big vendors probably work too.

As free solution you can try to use:
- Eclipse with EMF tools and a graphical design tool such as Omondo 
Create EMF project from .mdl file then create .ecd class diagram from 
project, do not forget to check "association"
- JRoseViewer (viewer only). I don't know the exact status of the project
The official sf website does not offer code anymore but you can still 
find some bundles, eg. from

Hope this helps

ps. we should suggest Bran Selic to publish a "standard" XMI description ;-)
