Re: [xml-dev] Data model vocabulary

Hi Bill

I came across this recently, "ADL/AOM 1.5 is, to our knowledge, the most powerful domain modelling language available"  (see the underligned below, from: http://www.openehr.org/news_events/releases.php?id=88).

It might be of some interest, but doesn't satisfy all your criteria, I know that it has a non XML file format for saving its models.

CAM is another option of course.


ADL Workbench 1.5beta10 released

March 10, 2014  |  from: Thomas Beale

A new beta of the ADL 1.5 workbench has been released. It now includes the proposed new internal code system, codes on all nodes (compatible with 13606-based archetype tools), explicit value sets, full ADL 1.4 conversion, IHTSDO configurable URIs for term binding, namespaced identifiers, standard lifecycle states, greatly improved terminology visualisation and much more.

We have been working with the submitter group for the OMG RfP Archetype Modelling Language (AML), based on ADL, and estimate that in the next quarter the features of ADL 1.5 will be finalised. ADL/AOM 1.5 is, to our knowledge, the most powerful domain modelling language available, and will be proposed as an update to ISO 13606-2 (based on the original ADL 1.4 language).

Please post feedback on the tool on the technical list and/or AWB issue tracker.

Currently my company is working on the creation of one application to navigate a data model currently represented as XML Schemas (a lot of them) and external Spreadsheets to keep its Data Dictionary in various languages.

The first step we want to take, is to create unified Data Model files that combine the information stored in the schemas and the spreadsheets, and then create an application, using XML technologies, to allow the user navigate this model in multiple languages.

Before spending a lot of time creating our own vocabulary and converting the XML schemas to it, I want to know if such vocabulary already exists.

This is the requirements list:
- Must be an XML vocabulary
- Must Support standard XML Schema constraints: data types, cardinality, etc.
- Should Support for XPath validation (assertions) like Schematron, RelaxNG
- Must be convertible from/to XML Schema
- Must support human-readable definitions of every element in various languages.
- Should be extensible to support custom properties for every element
- Desirable: support for modeling graphs (no just trees of data).

Somebody here could recommend an XML vocabulary for this task?

Is better to create a new vocabulary that supersedes XML Schema? Will it be useful for some of you?

Thank you for sharing your wisdom,
