|Q:||Which plug-ins do I need?|
|A:||There are several plug-ins and features available. Some depend on others and won´t work without them.
Depending on your requirements you do not need to install all of them. For instance if you just want to compare models via JAVA-code you don´t have to add the UI-plug-in.
It is recommended not just to install the plug-ins but install the associated fetaures.
|Q:||How can I install the needed features/plug-ins?|
|Q:||How can I use EMO?|
|A:||There are two ways of comparing models.
|Q:||What are the used strategies for the comparison and the mapping of the models?|
During the matching phase several similarity metrics are computet for element pairs (e,f) where e is an element of the left model and f is an element of the right model.
There are five standard comparators for calculating single similarity values.
After the comparisons the similarity values will be aggregated depending on their weightings to a single similarity metric for each pair (e,f).
When the matching is finished the mapping of both models will be built by analysing the matching. Certain rules are applied on the matching such like a bidirectional mapping, or the position of the matched elements.
For getting more detailed informations about the whole process we refer to the architecture-site.
|Q:||What about the performance of the comparisons?|
|A:||The performance of the model comparison takes the main time of the whole process. Depending on the number of features selected for the comparison the time may vary significantly. But the more features are compared the better the results will be. You have to point out an optimal setting for your models.|
|Q:||What is the projects roadmap for the future?|
|A:||The next few steps of the project are always displayed at the page about EMO.
Next steps are:
