  • model-driven engineering (MDE);
  • ontology


This chapter provides an overview of first part of the book. The book uses the concept of megamodeling to provide a descriptive model for specifying the structure of model-driven engineering (MDE) approaches. It describes the relationship between concepts of MDE and ontologies. The book then uses the MDE approach to specify the relations between metamodeling technical spaces and ontological technical spaces. Additionally, it proposes a classification for existing approaches that use MDE and ontologies and identify patterns for transformations between both paradigms. The analysis of existing work resulted in the identification of requirements for the integration of MDE and ontology technologies.
