Advance Praise for the "Common
Warehouse Metamodel Developer's Guide"
"CWM Developer's Guide breaks
new ground by providing an in-depth overview of Model Driven Integration
for the data warehouse and Business Intelligence tool chain using innovative
meta data design patterns. The use of UML and MOF to define platform-independent
models while simultaneously targeting both XML and Java-based meta data
management using XMI and JMI is supported with numerous examples.
Software architects, CTOs, systems integrators, and vendors grappling
with the complexity of tool, data, and application integration can learn
firsthand the power of OMG Model Driven Architecture from this pioneering

"The first CWM book, Common
Warehouse Metamodel: An Introduction, has become a great complement to
the CWM specifications. This follow-on book delves even deeper into the
implementation world, which is critical to the success of any standard.
This developer's guide establishes a key transition from 'paper
standards' to actual adopted standards for tool integration. Common Warehouse
Metamodel Developer's Guide is not only well written, but also well focused
on applications related to the standards. I highly recommend this second
book to anyone who wants to transform standards into reality in their

"Common Warehouse Metamodel
Developer's Guide is a highly practical guide to a powerful new way of
integrating systems in the data warehousing and business analysis domains.
By leveraging this new standard for modeling and exchanging application,
tool, and instance meta data, the authors show how representing common
business and domain concepts as higher-level abstractions can solve complex,
real-world integration problems. Model-based development has the potential
to vastly simplify the increasingly complex issues faced by developers
in building integrated solutions in today's distributed, heterogeneous
environments, and CWM is the leading example of the success of this approach."

"This book illustrates how
CWM is used not only to describe complex data warehousing systems, but
also to facilitate interoperability and integration. It is an excellent
guide for anyone interested in developing platform-independent domain
models and leveraging domain models for integration and information exchange."
