  • model-driven engineering (MDE);
  • web ontology language (OWL)


This concluding chapter provides an overview of the book, which addresses challenges in composing model-driven engineering (MDE) and web ontology language (OWL) technologies. This work comprises multiple facets of this challenge, namely: (1) classification of existing approaches integrating both paradigms; (2) the specification of a coherent framework for integrated usage of both modeling approaches, comprising the benefits of unified modeling language (UML) class-based modeling and OWL; and applications of the proposed framework to improve (3) model-driven engineering and (4) ontology engineering.
