DanC: by Jon Sowa
DanC: "Independently developed, but convergent theories that stand the test of time are a more reliable basis for standards than the consensus of a committee."
DanC: "As an example, the Unified Modeling Language has four levels: the
DanC: ... metametalanguage defines the syntax and semantics of the UML notations; the metalanguage defines the general-purpose UML types; a systems analyst defines application types as instances of the UML types; finally, the working data of an application program consists of instances of the application types. ...
DanC: ... To provide a unified view of all these levels, Olivier Gerbe and his colleagues at the DMR Consulting Group implemented design tools ...
DanC: ... that use conceptual graphs as the representation language at every level
DanC: (Gerbe et al. 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2000)."
