Design and Development of a Model Repository for Model Management
('Master',) thesis presented on 23. Sep 2014 from 14:00 to 14:00
Model management is a eld which supports information integration tasks by dening and formalizing operations on models and mappings. A reasonable requirement on model management operators is that they are generic, that is, abstract from any concrete metamodel. A further necessity in data integration and model management is to have a repository which stores models (or parts of models) and mappings and enables their easy retrieval for tasks such as schema reuse or benchmarking of model management operators. In this master thesis proposal we motivate the need for a schema repository for models and mappings in the Generic Role-based Metamodel (GeRoMe) as a part of the GeRoMeSuite model management platform and describe the underlying approach for its existing functionality and the functionality which will be implemented as part of the master thesis. After completing the master thesis project, the repository will be able to store models, transform them randomly and generate mappings between the original and the corresponding model, store similarity scores between model fragments and oer a search by keyword capability.
