W e present M(DM)-an extensible metalevel syst e m in which the syntax and the semantics of data models, schemas, and databases can be uniformly represented. M ( D M ) consists primari ly of a set of metatypes that capture and express data-model cons tructs in second-order logic; a data model i s hence represented as a collection of M ( D M ) metatypes. To achieve extensibility, we organize M(DM)’s metatypes into an inheritance lattice. W e demonstrate the robustness and openness of our… CONTINUE READING
