Model management aims at reducing the amount of programming needed for the development of metadata-intensive applications. We present a first complete prototype of a generic modelmanagement system, in which high-level operators are used to manipulate models and mappings between models. We define the key conceptual structures: models, morphisms, and selectors, and describe their use and implementation. We specify the semantics of the known model-management operators applied to these structures, suggest new ones, and develop new algorithms for implementing the individual operators. We examine the solutions for two model-management tasks that involve manipulations of relational schemas, XML schemas, and SQL views.
