Applying the UML to the ODP Enterprise Viewpoint

Steen, Maarten and Derrick, John (1999) Applying the UML to the ODP Enterprise Viewpoint. Technical report. University of Kent at Canterbury (KAR id:21827)


Now that the Reference Model for Open Distributed Processing (RM-ODP) has stabilised, attention is shifting towards the definition of specific notations for the ODP viewpoints. The objective of this paper is twofold. Firstly, we analyse the current definition of the ODP enterprise viewpoint language. Using the UML, a meta-model of the core concepts and their relationships is constructed. Secondly, we investigate to what extent the UML can be used for enterprise viewpoint specification by means of a small case study. We conclude by discussing the main open issues with regard to enterprise viewpoint specification.
