Title: Leveraging the UML Metamodel: Expressing ORM Semantics Using a UML Profile

Object Role Modeling (ORM) techniques produce a detailed domain model from the perspective of the business owner/customer. The typical process begins with a set of simple sentences reflecting facts about the business. The output of the process is a single model representing primarily the persistent information needs of the business. This type of model contains little, if any reference to a targeted computerized implementation. It is a model of business entities not of software classes. Through well-defined procedures, an ORM model can be transformed into a high quality objector relational schema.
