Title
Two experiencies in software dynamics

Abstract
This paper presents an outline of a formal model management framework developed in two projects, which provide breakthroughs for legacy systems recovery (RELS) and for data migration (ADAM). To recover a legacy system, we follow an algebraic approach by using algebras in order to represent the models and manipulate them. RELS also automatically generates a data migration plan that specifies a data transfer process to save all the legacy knowledge in the new recovered database. The data migration solution is also introduced as a support for the OO conceptual schemas evolution where their persistent layers are stored by means of relational databases, in the ADAM tool. Contents and structure of the data migration plans are specified using an abstract data migration language. The high abstraction level of this language allows us to be independent from the underlying DBMS technology. Our past experience in both projects has guided us towards the model management research field. We present a case study that illustrates the application of both tools.
