How To: Read ConceptDraw PROJECT files

ConceptDraw PROJECT writes CDPX, CPDZ and CPDTZ files.

Reading CDPX, CPDZ and CPDTZ files

The simplest way to read a CDPX, CPDZ or CPDTZ file is to use the UniversalProjectReader:

import net.sf.mpxj.ProjectFile;
import net.sf.mpxj.reader.UniversalProjectReader;

// ...

UniversalProjectReader reader = new UniversalProjectReader();
ProjectFile project ="my-sample.cdpx");

You can work directly with the ConceptDrawProjectReader by replacing UniversalProjectReader with ConceptDrawProjectReader, although this offers no particular advantage as there are no additional configuration settings available on the ConceptDrawProjectReader class.
