Abstract:
The diversity of existing information models is high. The process of manual construction of model transformation is labor-intensive. Therefore the problem of automation of information models transformation construction remains to be of high importance. The paper proposes two methods for semi-automatic construction of model transformations. The first method is aimed at construction of forward transformations on the basis of established correspondences between elements of the models. The second method is aimed at construction of backward transformations of models on the basis of forward transformations. The methods for semi-automatic construction of model transformations are parts of more general work development of a Unifying Information Models Constructor (Model Unifier in short). The main practical task of the Unifier is a mapping of models of heterogeneous information resources into the canonical information model during the integration of heterogeneous resources.
