Mechanisms and Algorithms Implementation on ADOxx

In this section we focus on the implementation of mechanisms and algorithms in ADOxx as functionality of the modelling toolkit. We distinguish between the following implementation types of functionality in ADOxx:

  1. Core Functions for Model Manipulation: this functionality is provided by the platform without any further configuration or implementation need.
  2. Configuration of ADOxx Functionality: functionality provided on platform level and possibility for adaptation through configuration
  3. External Coupling ADOxx Functionalty: extending functionality through AdoScript and query implementation using the extension capabilities of the platform
  4. Add-On Implementation: integration support to use functionality developed externally to ADOxx

Meta Model of Mechanisms and Algorithms

According to [Karagiannis2002] the meta model of mechanisms and algorithms is presented above, further detailled in the following subsections.
