Finding Similar Classes with a Simplified Metamodel

Abstract

To integrate conceptual models and other types of models, it is necessary to identify the portions of the models that overlap (i.e.,find similar classes) and resolve any conflicts. Complete automation of this task is generally considered infeasible. However, it may be possible to provide some automated support to the integrator. This paper discusses a simplified metamodel and matching algorithm that have been implemented in a prototype tool called Similar Class Finder (SCF), which works with Unified Modeling Language (UML) class diagrams. Simple tests of the prototype produce interesting successes and failures, suggesting that future work and refinement of the tool could be productive.
