|Title:||Ontological Behavior Modeling|
|Published:||May 20, 2011|
|Abstract:||This article gives an example of improving the effectiveness of behavior modeling languages using ontological techniques. The techniques are applied to behaviors in the Unified Modeling Language (UML), using the logical meanings for classification introduced in UML 2. The article suggests unifying UML's three kinds of behavior languages around the abstract syntax and semantics of composite structure, UML's model for capturing interconnection of parts of classes. This significantly simplifies the UML metamodel, provides a formal semantics to clarify ambiguities in the current informal semantics, and increases the expressiveness of UML behaviors.|
