Books and Manuals for ConceptBase


User manual and tutorials

The user manual is available both in HTML and PDF format. There are also two tutorials: the first one shows how to define classes, instances, queries, rules and constraints; the second tutorial focusses on metamodeling. User manual and tutorial are also included in the download file of ConceptBase.

Textbook "Metamodeling for Method Engineering"

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".

Slides for a metamodeling course

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.

ConceptBase.cc Channel

This YouTube Channel features short videos from screen captures to highlight how certain tasks can be performed by the ConceptBase user interface.

Constraints between modelling perspectives

A tutorial held at the NEMO 2015 Summerschool on Next-Generation Enterprise Modeling. Slides are included under a Creative Commons License. Telos source models for 4EM, ArchiMate and process-modeling examples are included as well. They work with a recent ConceptBase system.

We are happy to learn about research/applications, in which ConceptBase.cc plays a role. If you publish work that is based on ConceptBase.cc, then please include one or both of the following references in your paper:
