Improving design patterns by description logics: A use case with abstract factory and strategy
Fernando S. Parreiras , Steffen Staab and Andreas Winter
This paper deals with problems in common design patterns and proposes description-logics-based modeling to remedy these issues. We exploit the TwoUse approach, which integrates OWL-DL, a W3C standard for description logics on the web, and UML-based modeling, to overcome drawbacks of the Strategy Pattern, that are also extensible to the Abstract Factory Pattern in a Model Driven Approach. The result is an OWL-based pattern to be used with design patterns: the Selector Pattern.
