Ontology-based Model Transformation

Today, model-driven development is getting more sophisticated and is used for modeling enterprises and developing application systems. To develop more and more complex systems efficiently, the trend is to intelligent infrastructure services. Since current interoperability solutions operate essentially at a syntactical level, technologies have to be developed enabling interoperability based on middleware, and development platforms have to be enriched with machine-understandable semantics. The 'Ontology-based Model Transformation’ project will contribute to these challenges by lifting syntactical metamodel description into ontologies.
