Automatic Normalisation via Metamodelling

  title={Automatic Normalisation via Metamodelling},
  author={David H. Akehurst and Behzad Bordbar and Peter J. Rodgers and N. T. G. Dalgliesh},
The process of normalisation has long been accepted as a crucial part of the design for good database systems. By using a declarative approach to the specification of the normalisation rules and a precisely defined transformation, over a meta-model of a database system design language, we can automate the normalisation process. A tool supporting the normalisation of database system designs can subsequently be developed providing an invaluable aid to the software system designer.
