Defining and validating transformations of uml models - depakote or seroquel which more sedating

E.g., if there are changes in the target platform (e.g.

To perform this transformation, select any OWL file in the workspace (most likely a file of a project that contains OWL models) in the Eclipse "Package Explorer", right-click on it and select the "Transform2UML" option (NOTICE: Right-click only on OWL files to make this option visible) from the pop-up menu.Since the middleware itself already support the transformation from Java to Turtle serialized Strings this can be easily done.Therefore we need to load the ontology, using the Turtle-Serializer to get a valid String representing the ontology and transform this String to the RDF/OWL syntax by using the freely available OWL API ( AAL Studio tool is intended to simplify the usage of ontologies while developing u AAL services, applications and/or platform components.The tool offers the ability to transform any OWL ontology file in RDF/XML format into UML2 file (without the UML graphical representation part).The supported format and the expected output is compatible with Protege 3.x that uses the Protege OWL-API (Stanford).

The generated UML file describes clearly the existing associations between Classes – Subclasses while the object and data properties may contain the range of values (Enumerations).

The alternative for the user would usually be to hand-code the implementation based on the model or some equivalent design.

The modelling and transformation approach also have the benefit that maintenance is simplified.

The default output location of the generated UML files of this transformation is the same folder of the selected OWL file.

In the "Console" View, the user/developer can find a detailed representation of the parsing process and the creation of the new model containing all the required properties.

Additionally, the user is required to define specific univers AAL properties and some extra information , such as Class types, helpful comments and ontology versions to be added to the output file by completing an XML file which follows a predefined schema.
