Books and Manuals for ConceptBase
The user manual is available both in
format. There are also two tutorials: the
shows how to define classes, instances, queries, rules and constraints; the
focusses on metamodeling. User manual and tutorial are also included in the download file
This 400+ pages textbook is a guide to the foundations of method engineering, a developing field
concerned with the definition of techniques for designing software systems. The approach is
based on metamodeling, the construction of a model about a collection of other models. The
book applies the metamodeling approach in five case studies, each describing a solution to a
problem in a specific domain. Suitable for classroom use, the book is also useful as a reference for practitioners.
The six case study chapters all use ConceptBase. You can download a free pre-print of book chapter 3
"Metamodeling and method engineering with ConceptBase".
These slides can be used for a course based on the above textbook, or for any course that introduces
into metamodeling. The slides are made available both as PDF and ODF and are distributed under
a Creative Commons License.
This YouTube Channel features short videos from screen captures to highlight how certain tasks can
be performed by the ConceptBase user interface.
