Object-Process Language: The Text

  • Dov Dori


OPM is bimodal: it employs both the visual (graphical) modality—OPD, and the verbal (textual) modality—OPL. The textual OPL representation of the OPM model has both human-oriented and machine-oriented goals. This chapter is devoted to presenting OPL and discussing its merits.
