A Common Data Model for Meta-Data in Interoperable Environments

MacFarlane, A., McCann, J. A. & Liddell, H. (1996). A Common Data Model for Meta-Data in Interoperable Environments. Paper presented at the 2nd international Baltic conference on IS and DB, 12-06-1996 - 14-06-1996, Tallinn, Estonia.


A Common Data Model is a unifying structure used to allow heterogeneous environments to interoperate. An Object Oriented common model is presented in this paper, which provides this unifying structure for a Meta-Data Repository Visualisation Tool. The creation of this common model from the Meta-Data held in component databases is described. The role this common model has in interoperable environments is discussed, and the physical architecture created from the examination of the Meta-Data in the Repository common model is described.
