Semantic model-driven architecting of service-based software systems
MetadataShow full item record
Model-driven development is a software development framework that emphasises model-based abstraction and automated code generation. Service-based software architectures benefit in particular from semantic, ontology-based modelling. We present ontology-based transformation and reasoning techniques for layered semantic service architecture modelling. Integrated ontological layers support abstract domain modelling, architectural design, and interoperability aspects. Ontologies are beneficial due to their potential to formally define models, to allow reasoning about semantic models, and to automate transformations at all layers. Ontologies are suitable in particular for the Web Services platform due to their ubiquity within the Semantic Web and their application to support semantic Web services.
