Analysis of the Evolution of the UML Metamodel

Zhiyi Ma, Huihong He, Jinyang Liu, Xiao He

Abstract

UML has been widely used for modeling applications and it changes continuously. In this situation, it is reasonable to analyze its evolution. This paper presents an approach to analyzing the evolution of the UML metamodel by using complex network and information entropy technologies. The approach can provide insight into the constructive mechanism and future trends of UML, and potentially form the basis for eliciting improved or novel laws of UML evolution. The study is a contribution for analyzing the evolution of not only the UML metamodel but also other metamodels like the UML metamodel.
