A Model-based Approach to Information Retrieval Systems Development

J. Ferreira, A. Silva, and J. Delgado (Portugal)


MDA, UML, IR, Modeling, Profile, Template.


We propose a novel model-based approach (MDA) for the design and creation of Information Retrieval (IR) systems. This is based on a specific language that provides common notation and concepts and a collaborative modular environment for the design of IR systems. The language is a UML profile, involving several stereotypes for the IR area. From this profile we derive standard libraries of modules that can be used in the development of IR systems. Through appropriate templates, we transform models into software code according different programming language and different IR platforms.
