The AMW (ATLAS Model Weaver) is a tool for establishing relationships (i.e., links) between models. The links are stored in a model, called weaving model. It is created conforming to a weaving metamodel. AMW provides a base weaving metamodel enabling to create links between model elements and associations between links. The metamodel may be extended to add other mapping semantics. This way there is the possibility of creating variable mapping languages dedicated to specific application requirements.
The establishment of links between model or metamodel elements is present in numerous application scenarios, such as metamodel comparison, traceability, model matching, model annotation, interoperability. The use cases section provides a set of key scenarios that use weaving models. The use cases contain a general overview, extra documentation and examples.
