An Ontology-based Approach for Enabling Linked Data Capabilities to MOF Compliant Models

Fernando Silva Parreiras, Gerd Gröner, Tobias Walter

Abstract

In the software development process, there are standards for general-purpose modeling languages and domain-specific languages, capable of capturing information about multiple views of systems, e.g., static structure and dynamic behavior. In a networked and federated development environment, modeling artifacts need to be linked, adapted and analyzed to meet the information requirements of multiple stakeholders. In this paper, we present an approach for linking, transforming and querying MOF-compliant modeling languages on the web of data. We define structural mappings between MOF and OWL and propose the usage of semantic web technologies for linking and querying software models.
