Representing Dynamic Invariants in Ontologically Well-Founded Conceptual Models

No. of bitstreams: 1 tese_8885_JohnMScThesis[final]20150703-110844.pdf: 2078817 bytes, checksum: b7867cf01fac04ad68223c7eeca3fe68 (MD5) Previous issue date: 2015-05-28 / Conceptual models often capture the invariant aspects of the phenomena we perceive. These invariants may be considered static when they refer to structures we perceive in phenomena at a particular point in time or dynamic/temporal when they refer to regularities across different points in time. While static invariants have received significant attention, dynamics enjoy marginal support in widely-employed techniques such as UML and OCL. This thesis aims at addressing this gap by proposing a technique for the representation of dynamic invariants of subject domains in UML-based conceptual models. For that purpose, a temporal extension of OCL is proposed. It enriches the ontologically well-founded OntoUML profile and enables the expression of a variety of (arbitrary) temporal constraints. The extension is fully implemented in the tool for specification, verification and simulation of enriched OntoUML models.

Dynamische Modellanalyse von Metamodellen mit operationaler Semantik

Soden, Michael 18 March 2015 (has links)
Metamodellierung im Sinne der Meta Object Facility (MOF) stellt eine Methode für die strukturelle Definition der abstrakten Syntax von Modellierungssprachen und Modellen im Softwareentwicklungsprozess dar. Um Modellsimulation und dynamische Analysen für metamodellbasierte Sprachen zu unterstützen, fehlt es an einem Kalkül zur operationalen Semantik. In dieser Arbeit wird ausgehend von MOF die Aktionssemantik MActions entwickelt, die die Definition von operationaler Semantik als Verhalten in Metamodellen ermöglicht. Diese Erweiterung geht einher mit der Beschreibung von Laufzeitmodellen sowie Zuständen und Parallelitätseigenschaften, so dass eine Verifikation von dynamischen Eigenschaften möglich wird. Zu diesem Zweck wird mit der Linear Temporal Object Constraint Language (LT-OCL) exemplarisch eine prädikatenlogische Temporallogik entwickelt, die eine metamodellunabhängige Analyse für ausführbare Modelle erlaubt. Dabei ist die Semantik von temporalen Ausdrücken über Zuständsänderungen von (aufgezeichneten) Ausführungsläufen beschrieben, wobei eine Linearisierung parallele Änderungen zusammenführt. Als weiteren Anwendungsfall der dynamischen Analyse untersuchen wir die Relation zum Verhaltensvergleich im Sinne der Bisimulationstheorie. Metamodelle, Aktionssemantik und Temporallogik werden mittels einer erweiterten Abstract State Machine (ASM) formal beschrieben und kommen in zwei Fallstudien zur Anwendung (Timed Automata und C#). / Object-oriented metamodelling as defined by the Meta Object Facility (MOF) provide a means to describe the structure of models and the abstract syntax of modelling languages at various stages in a software development process. However, MOF lacks concepts for the definition of operational semantics and there is no support for dynamic model analysis based on the semantics and abstract states of a language definition. This thesis investigates on extending the metamodelling framework with an action semantics - the MActions - to support the definition of operational semantics in metamodels and enable simulation as well as verification of dynamic properties. For this purpose, runtime models are incorporated with semantics for states, time, and properties of parallelism that allow a generic analysis solely bound to a certain metamodel definition. Furthermore, we develop the Linear Temporal Object Constraint Language (LT-OCL) to perform a dynamic analysis of execution runs based on the executable models. The semantics of this temporal predicate logic is bound to state changes of (recorded) execution traces that are linearizations of parallel changes of the runtimes model. This establishes the link to the theory of bisimulation as a second application case of dynamic analysis. Abstract State Machines (ASM) have been used to formally define the action language in conjunction with metamodels and the temporal logic. As proof of concept of the whole approach, the framework has been implemented and applied to two languages as case studies (namely Timed Automata and C#).
