The following firm computing period will depend upon the synergy among either applied sciences: semantic net and model-driven software program improvement (MDSD). The semantic net organizes procedure wisdom in conceptual domain names in keeping with its that means. It addresses a variety of firm computing wishes via determining, abstracting and rationalizing commonalities, and checking for inconsistencies throughout process requirements. at the different part, model-driven software program improvement is ultimate the space between enterprise requisites, designs and executables through the use of domain-specific languages with custom-built syntax and semantics. It makes a speciality of utilizing modeling languages as programming languages.
Among many components of software, we spotlight the world of configuration administration. examine the instance of a telecommunication corporation, the place dealing with the a number of configurations of community units (routers, hubs, modems, etc.) is important. firm structures determine and record the practical and actual features of community units, and regulate adjustments to these features. employing the mixing of semantic net and model-driven software program improvement permits for
(1) explicitly specifying configurations of community units with tailored languages,
(2) for checking the consistency of those specifications
(3) for outlining a vocabulary to proportion gadget necessities throughout firm structures. via dealing with configurations with constant and particular options, we decrease rate and danger, and improve agility in keeping with new specifications within the telecommunication area.
This e-book examines the synergy among semantic net and model-driven software program improvement. It brings jointly advances from disciplines like ontologies, description logics, domain-specific modeling, version transformation and ontology engineering to take firm computing to the following level.
