Filters are specified based on fully qualified element names. You define filters to match one or more parts of the beginning of fully qualified names. For example, a filter BankingApplication.businesslogic matches the above mentioned package "businesslogic" and all elements it contains.

The # character serves as wildcard that matches any name. For instance, the filter matches the package org.xml and all elements contained within, regardless of the design model name.
