Research field Big Data & Model Management
Status completed

GeRoMeSuite is a prototype system for generic model management.


As a framework, GeRoMeSuite provides an environment to simplify the implementation of model management operators. It is based on the generic role based metamodel GeRoMe , which represents models from different modeling languages (such as XML Schema, OWL, SQL) in a generic way. Thereby, the management of models in a polymorphic fashion is enabled, i.e. the same operator implementations are used regardless of the original modeling language of the schemas. In addition to providing a framework for model management, GeRoMeSuite implements several fundamental operators such as Match, Merge, and Compose.

The system contains a workspace in which all models and mappings are managed. In doing so, the objects to be manipulated are accessible to all operator implementations in a uniform way. Currently, it is possible to import SQL, XML Schema and OWL models. The mappings supported are simple morphisms, structured intensional mappings that are used for schema integration, and executable mappings in the form of second order tuple generating dependencies that can be composed and executed.
