A Comparative Study of Metamodel Integration and Interoperability in UML and Web Services
The application of MDA to Web services has recently received considerable attention. Similar to UML diagrams, Web services are specialised languages each one targeting a specific aspect and functionality of the system. By using multiple languages, it is possible to specify complete integrated models of the system, having structure, behaviour, communication and coordination mechanisms. To benefit from MDA, Web service languages have to be represented as UML metamodels. In order to provide an overall view of the design and inter-operations of the system with models, it is crucial to integrate their UML metamodels. In this paper, we shall conduct a comparative study of the metamodel integration in Web services and UML. Drawing on the lesson learnt from the integration of Web services, a method of integration of UML metamodels will be presented, which facilitates model transformations and supports interoperability, inter-navigability and consistency across the integrated domains.
