    Conference report
    Open Access
    Business process modeling using an artifact-centric approach has raised a signi cant interest over the last few years. This approach is usually stated in terms of the BALSA framework which de nes the four \dimensions" of ...
  • AuRUS: Automated Reasoning on UML/OCL Schemas 

    Queralt Calafat, Anna; Rull Fort, Guillem; Teniente López, Ernest; Farré Tost, Carles; Urpí Tubella, Antoni (Springer Verlag, 2010)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    To ensure the quality of an information system, the conceptual schema that represents its domain must be semantically correct. We present a prototype to automatically check whether a UML schema with OCL constraints is right ...
  • AuRUS: explaining the validation of UML/OCL conceptual schemas 

    Rull Fort, Guillem; Farré Tost, Carles; Queralt Calafat, Anna; Teniente López, Ernest; Urpí Tubella, Antoni (2015-05-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The validation and the verification of conceptual schemas have attracted a lot of interest during the last years, and several tools have been developed to automate this process as much as possible. This is achieved, in ...

    Open Access
    Business process modeling using an artifact-centric approach has raised a significant interest over the last few years. This approach is usually stated in terms of the BALSA framework which defi nes the four dimensions ...
  • Facilitating the definition of general constraints in UML (extended version) 

    Costal Costa, Dolors; Gómez Seoane, Cristina; Queralt Calafat, Anna; Raventós Pagès, Ruth; Teniente López, Ernest (2006-04)
    External research report
    Open Access
    One important aspect in the specification of conceptual schemas is the definition of general constraints that cannot be expressed by the predefined constructs provided by conceptual modeling languages. In general this is ...
  • OCL-Lite: a decidable (yet expressive) fragment of OCL 

    Queralt Calafat, Anna; Artale, Alessandro; Calvanese, Diego; Teniente López, Ernest (2012)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    UML has become a de facto standard in conceptual modeling. Class diagrams in UML allow one to model the data in the domain of interest by specifying a set of graphical constraints. However, in most cases one needs to provide ...
  • Reasoning on UML class diagrams with OCL constraints 

    Queralt Calafat, Anna; Teniente López, Ernest (2006-04)
    External research report
    Open Access
    We propose a new approach to check whether a given UML class diagram with its OCL integrity constraints satisfies a set of desirable properties such as schema satisfiability, class liveliness, redundancy of integrity ...
  • Specifying artifact-centric business process models in UML 

    Estañol Lamarca, Montserrat; Queralt Calafat, Anna; Sancho Samsó, María Ribera; Teniente López, Ernest (Springer, 2015-04-01)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    In recent years, the artifact-centric approach to process mod- eling has attracted a lot of attention. One of the research lines in this area is finding a suitable way to represent the dimensions in this approach. Bearing ...

  • Strict and extended interpretations of operation contracts in conceptual modeling 

    Queralt Calafat, Anna; Teniente López, Ernest (2005-05)
    External research report
    Open Access
    This paper describes two different ways of understanding operation contracts in conceptual modeling. The main difference between them lies in the way operation postconditions and integrity constraints are guaranteed, which ...
  • Towards DaaS 2.0: enriching data models

  • Validating UML schemas with OCL constraints and operations 

    Queralt Calafat, Anna; Teniente López, Ernest (2008-07)
    External research report
    Open Access
    A conceptual schema specifies the relevant information about the domain, and how this information changes as a result of the execution of operations. The purpose of validating a conceptual schema is to check whether it ...
