Summary of Project Focus. The main goal of DARWIN is to provide an extensible framework based on well-established conceptual modeling languages and model-driven engineering techniques enabling developers to entirely develop and evolve semantic infrastructures at an appropriate level of abstraction. Along this overall reserach focus, Darwin pursues three key research goals involving several research challenges: Model-Driven Semantic Infrastructure Development: To ease the development of semantic infrastrucutres, the first goal of Darwin is to provide a development toolkit supporting a tailored assembly of model-driven techniques to enable an entirely model-based development process and the automatic generation of semantic infrastructures. Change-aware Development Environment: Successful software is always subject to modification. By this goal, we turn changes applied during development into first-class entitities to enable co-evolution of interdependent artifacts as well as the incremental generation of artifacts building the semantic infrastructures. Semi-automated Co-Evolution: Every time schemas evolve, dependent artifacts have to be kept in a consistent state. Manually performing this task is often cumbersome and error-prone. To support the user in maintaining the semantic infrastructure, this goals deals with the co-evolution of schema-dependent artifacts such as instances, queries, inferences, and integrations in the model layer.
