Software Modelling Languages: A Wish List
2015 (English)In: Proceedings of the Seventh International Workshop on Modeling in Software Engineering / [ed] Gray, J., Chechik, M., Kulkarni, V., Paige, R., IEEE Press, 2015, 72-77 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Contemporary software engineering modelling tends to rely on general-purpose languages, such as the Unified Modeling Language. However, such languages are practice-based and seldom underpinned with a solid theory – be it mathematical, ontological or concomitant with language use. The future of software modelling deserves research to evaluate whether a language base that is compatible with these various elements as well as being philosophically coherent offers practical advantages to software developers.
