Classifying Unstructured Models into Metamodels using Multi Layer Perceptrons

Walmir Couto, Emerson Morais, Marcos Fabro

Abstract

Models and metamodels created using model-based approaches have restrict conformance relations. However, there has been an increase of semi-structured or schema-free data formats, such as document-oriented representations, which are often persisted as JSON documents. Despite not having an explicit schema/metamodel, these documents could be categorized to discover their domain and to partially conform to a metamodel. Recent approaches are emerging to extract information or to couple modeling with cognification. However, there is a lack of approaches exploring semi-structured formats classification. In this paper, we present a methodology to analyze and classify JSON documents according to existing metamodels. First, we describe how to extract metamodels elements into a Multi-Layer Perceptron (MLP) network to be trained. Then, we translate the JSON documents into the input format of the encoded MLP. We present the step-by-step tasks to classify JSON documents according to existing metamodels extracted from a repository. We have conducted a series of experiments, showing that the approach is effective to classify the documents.
