Software engineering makes extensive use of models to provide a better understanding of artifacts produced during system development. Models are specified in modeling languages such as UML or using Domain Specific Languages. In this paradigm of development, metamodeling is essential because it is usually used to specify the abstract syntax of these languages. However, the design of metamodels is not a trivial task, it requires expertise in specific domains, language definition and abstraction
