This is a very nice and welcome work to provide an up to date uml editor for netbeans.
But why rewrite all from scratch and not use other code provided from other project?
Why not use some of (meta) modelling tools developped in relation to eclipse : ecore/emf/uml (http://www.eclipse.org/modeling/)
The aspect of serialisation,model generation,transformation are alreadey provided by eclipse modelling project : http://www.eclipse.org/modeling/
and provide only the UI aspect from netbeans
The linking between eclipse osgi based api and netbeans might be done via netbinox : http://wiki.apidesign.org/wiki/Netbinox#Resources
my two cents ...
