Abstract: With strong support from leading system-modeling methodologists, academics and, most importantly, the Object Management Group (OMG), it comes as no surprise that the Unified Modeling Language (UML) is maturing into a de facto standard object-oriented language for modeling software-intensive systems. For a variety of reasons, e.g., compatibility with existing systems and databases, most object-oriented applications still rely upon a relational database management system despite their original object-centered designs. Integrating relational databases into object-oriented applications necessitates transformations from the structural parts of object-orientes models into relational database schemas. It is demonstrated in this paper that mapping rules for such transformations, which constitute an important part of general knowledge in the domain of UML, can be represented as XML definite clauses. Of central importance to this approach, such definite clauses use XML expressions as their underlying data structure; consequently, not only can they directly describe diagram components that are represented in XML Metadata Interchange format (XMI)--a standard XML-bases interchange format for UML diagrams--in adition, they can seamlessly specify information to be extracted from the diagram components as well as new information to be derived.
