Information technology - CDIF framework - Part 1: Overview
|Publication Date:||1 January 2004|
The CDIF family of standards is primarily designed to be used as a description of a mechanism for transferring information between modelling tools. It facilitates a successful transfer when the authors of the importing and exporting tools have nothing in common except an agreement to conform to CDIF
The CDIF family of standards includes a semantic metamodel and a transfer format definition. It also includes the specification of a meta-metamodel and associated rules that define a framework for the semantic metamodel and the transfer format. The language that is defined for the transfer format also has applicability as a general language for Import/Export for repositories. The CDIF semantic metamodel also has applicability as the basis of standard definitions for use in repositories.
