GENERALIZATION AND BLENDING IN THE GENERATION OF ENTITY-RELATIONSHIP SCHEMAS BY ANALOGY

Marco A. Casanova, Simone D. J. Barbosa, Karin K. Breitman, Antonio L. Furtado

Abstract

To support the generation of database schemas of information systems, a five-step design process is proposed that explores the notions of generic and blended spaces and favours the reuse of predefined schemas. The use of generic and blended spaces is essential to achieve the passage from the source space into the target space in such a way that differences and conflicts can be detected and, whenever possible, conciliated.
