Versatile model-based design demands languages and tools which are suitable for the cre-

ation, manipulation, transformation, and composition of domain-specific modeling languages

and domain models. The Meta Object Facility (MOF) forms the cornerstone of the OMG’s

Model Driven Architecture (MDA) as the standard metamodeling language for the specifica-

tion of domain-specific languages. This thesis describes an implementation of MOF v1.4 as

an alternative metamodeling language for the Generic Modeling Environment (GME), the

flagship tool of Model Integrated Computing (MIC). This implementation utilizes model-

to-model transformations specified with the Graph Rewriting and Transformation tool suite

(GReAT) to translate between MOF and the UML-based GME metamodeling language.

The technique described by this paper illustrates the role formally well-defined metamod-

eling and metamodel-based model transformation approaches can play in interfacing MIC

technology to new and evolving modeling standards.
