Metadata, in this context, includes database schema, UML ™ (Unified Modeling Language) models, workflow models, business process models, business rules, API definitions, and so on. MOF defines standards for automating the physical management and integration of different kinds of metadata through metamodels and mappings among them.

The goal is to make domain-specific context, nomenclature, and the language used to describe content and services on the web unambiguous from a computing perspective. Its underlying formalisms and technologies have evolved from more than two decades of research in knowledge representation, computational linguistics, and automated reasoning. MDA and the Semantic Web were conceived independently and evolved with little crosspollination over the course of several years. However, participants from both communitie
