Framework for Deriving Interface Data Schema from UML Information Models
            draft-betts-netmod-framework-data-schema-uml-04

Abstract

   This draft describes a framework for how purpose and protocol
   specific interfaces can be systematically derived from an underlying
   common information model, focusing upon the networking and forwarding
   domain.  The benefit of using such an approach in interface
   specification development is to promote convergence,
   interoperability, and efficiency.
