Conceptual Model Interoperability: A Metamodel-driven Approach [chapter]

Pablo Rubén Fillottrani, C. Maria Keet
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We present the main approach and some essential metamodel-driven rules for the static, structural, components of ER, EER, UML v2.4.1, ORM, and ORM2.  ...  The transformations for model elements and patterns are used with the metamodel to verify correctness of inter-model assertions across models in different languages.  ...  Acknowledgements This work is based upon research supported by the National Research Foundation of South Africa (Project UID: 90041) and the Argentinian Ministry of Science and Technology.  ...

Toward an Ontology-Driven Unifying Metamodel for UML Class Diagrams, EER, and ORM2 [chapter]

C. Maria Keet, Pablo Rubén Fillottrani
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Software compatibility and application integration can be achieved using their respective conceptual data models. However, each model may be represented in a different language.  ...  Aiming toward filling this gap, we designed a common, ontology-driven, metamodel of the static, structural, components of ER, EER, UML v2.4.1, ORM, and ORM2, such that each is a fragment of the encompassing  ...  Acknowledgements This work is based upon research supported by the National Research Foundation of South Africa (Project UID: 80584) and the Argentinian Ministry of Science and Technology.  ...

Conceptual Schema Optimisation – Database Optimisation before sliding down the Waterfall [article]

Henderik A. Proper, Terry A. Halpin
2021 arXiv   pre-print
When optimising schemas, one would like to preserve some level of equivalence between the schemas before and after a transformation.  ...  We distinguish between two classes of equivalence, one based on the mathematical semantics of the conceptual schemas, and one on conceptual preference by humans.  ...  such as Enhanced Entity Relationship (EER) modelling or Object-Role Modelling (ORM).  ...

EVORM: A conceptual modelling technique for evolving application domains

H.A Proper, Th.P van der Weide
1994 Data & Knowledge Engineering  
EVORM is the result of applying a general theory for the evolution of application domains to the object role modelling technique PSM, a generalisation of ER, EER, FORM and NIAM.  ...  In version modelling, a structural change requires the replacement of the old system by a new system, and a costly conversion of the old population into a new population conforming to the new schema.  ...  PSM can be regarded as a common base for object role modelling techniques like NIAM, FORM, ER [11] , EER [27] and IFO [1] .  ...

An ontology-driven unifying metamodel of UML Class Diagrams, EER, and ORM2

C. Maria Keet, Pablo Rubén Fillottrani
2015 Data & Knowledge Engineering  
We describe two practical use cases of the metamodel, being a quantitative assessment of the entities of 30 models in ER/EER, UML, and ORM/ORM2, and a qualitative evaluation of inter-model assertions.  ...  To this end, we designed a common and unified ontology-driven metamodel of the static, structural components and constraints in such a way that it unifies ER, EER, UML Class Diagrams v2.4.1, and ORM and  ...  Acknowledgments This work is based upon research supported by the National Research Foundation of South Africa and the Argentinian Ministry of Science and Technology (MINCyT).  ...

Evidence-based lean logic profiles for conceptual data modelling languages [article]

Pablo Rubén Fillottrani, C. Maria Keet
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Multiple logic-based reconstructions of conceptual data modelling languages such as EER, UML Class Diagrams, and ORM exist.  ...  They mainly cover various fragments of the languages and none are formalised such that the logic applies simultaneously for all three modelling language families as unifying mechanism.  ...  and its flavours such as Cog-NIAM and FCO-IM, MADS [83] , and Telos [78] .  ...

Advances in Data Modeling Research

Gove Allen, Akhilesh Bajaj, Vijay Khatri, Sudha Ram, Keng Siau
2006 Communications of the Association for Information Systems  
We focus on four primary areas where data modeling research offers rich opportunities: spatio-temporal semantics, genome research, ontological analysis and empirical evaluation of existing models.  ...  We highlight past work in each area and also discuss open questions, with a view to promoting future research in the overall data modeling area.  ...  For example, finding that the extended ERM (EER) schema is more or less readable than the object-oriented (OO) model (Booch 1994 ) schema for a case does not indicate why this was observed.  ...

Goal, a Graph-Based Object and Association Language [chapter]

J. Hidders, J. Paredaens
1994 Advances in Database Systems  
The entity classes and relationships in the EER model correspond roughly to the named object classes and named value classes in GDM.  ...  Closely related to the ER model is the NIAM (Nijssen's Information Analysis Method) schema technique (Nijssen and Halpin, 1989; Wintraecken, 1990 ) which is also known as ORM (Object Role Model).  ...  SUGGESTIONS FOR FURTHER RESEARCH ON TYPING until the minimal extension relation between the schema graph and this instance graph covers the instance graph and is class-name correct.  ...

The model multiplicity problem: experimenting with real-time specification methods

M. Peleg, D. Dori
2000 IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering  
AbstractÐThe Object-Process Methodology (OPM) specifies both graphically and textually the system's static-structural and behavioral-procedural aspects through a single unifying model.  ...  These methods usually employ at least three distinct models for specifying various system aspectsÐmainly structure, function, and behavior.  ...  The authors found that the EER model is better than the OO model in specifying unary and ternary relationships, that it takes less time to generate EER schemas, and that the EER model is preferred by the  ...
