The term model-driven engineering (MDE) is typically used to describe software development approaches in which abstract models of software systems are created and systematically transformed to concrete implementations. In this paper we give an overview of current research in MDE and discuss some of the major challenges that must be tackled in order to(More)
The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a complex collection of mostly diagrammatic notations for software modeling, and its standardization has prompted an animated discussion about UML's semantics and how to represent it. We have thus set out to clarify some of the notions involved in defining modeling languages, with an eye toward the particular(More)
Reuse is a key technique for a more efficient development and ensures the quality of the results. In object technology explicit encapsulation, interfaces, and inheritance are well-known principles for independent development that enable combination and reuse of developed artifacts. In this paper we apply modularity concepts for domain specific languages(More)
The paper presents the essential features of a new member of the UML language family that supports working with object-oriented frameworks. This UML extension, called UML-F, allows the explicit representation of framework variation points. The paper discusses some of the relevant aspects of UML-F, which is based on standard UML extension mechanisms. A case(More)
The Uni ed Modeling Language UML is rapidly emerging as a de facto standard for modelling OO systems Given this role it is imperative that the UML needs a well de ned fully explored semantics Such semantics is required in order to ensure that UML concepts are precisely stated and de ned In this paper we motivate an approach to formalizing UML in which(More)
The Uni ed Modeling Language UML is a language for spec ifying visualizing and documenting object oriented systems UML com bines the concepts of OOA OOD OMT and OOSE and is intended as a standard in the domain of object oriented analysis and design Due to the missing formal mathematical foundation of UML the syntax and the semantics of a number of UML(More)
Designing a new domain specific language is as any other complex task sometimes error-prone and usually time consuming, especially if the language shall be of high-quality and comfortably usable. Existing tool support focuses on the simplification of technical aspects but lacks support for an enforcement of principles for a good language design. In this(More)
