An increasing number of data sources are available on the Internet, many of which offer semantically overlapping data, but based on different schemas, or models. While it is often of interest to integrate such data sources, the lack of consistency among them makes this integration difficult. This paper addresses the need for new techniques that enable the… (More)
In the scope of meta-modelling it is important to consider descriptions sometimes as a model and sometimes as a metamodel, e.g. the UML metamodel which is a metamodel for UML and at the same time a model in terms of MOF. For this handling to be easy, this article describes a meta-level representation that includes both aspects. It covers the most important… (More)
In the standard generative Model-driven Architecture (MDA), adapting the models of an existing system requires re-generation and restarting of that system. This is due to a strong separation between the modeling environment and the runtime environment. Certain current approaches remove this separation, allowing a system to be changed smoothly when the model… (More)
This paper describes how to integrate EMF with the MATER meta-modelling framework. It covers first, how EMF is used to implement MATER. Then XMI model import to MATER is described including import of EMF models. Finally, the direct integration on meta-model level is discussed. 1 Introduction Using UML as a standard way of describing the architecture of… (More)
In science and elsewhere models are weaved together forming complex knowledge structures. This article presents a generic way of connecting models with model borders both vertically and horizontally in a mul-tilevel modelling framework. One model can be connected vertically to several models allowing a model element to be an instance of several metaclasses… (More)
A tool for the assessment and monitoring of web content accessibility is proposed. The experimental prototype utilises an Internet robot and stores the collected accessibility data in a data warehouse for further analysis. The evaluation is partly based on the Web Accessibility guidelines from W3C.
