A Metamodeling Approach to Evolution

Published

Author(s)

M N. Terrasse

Abstract

With the increasing complexity of systems being modeled, analysis and design move towards more and more abstract methodologies. Most of them rely on metamodeling tools using multi-view models and the four-layer metamodeling architecture. Our idea is to use the metamodeling approach in order to classify and to constraint the possible evolutions of an information system. Within the domain of UML metamodeling, a refinement of the metamodel-level classification is proposed that includes bases for defining a metric of the evolution (in terms of distance between metamodels).
