This paper discusses the design of integrity and derivation rules on the basis of Rule Markup Language (RuleML) and Semantic Web Rule Language (SWRL). We propose a general markup framework for integrity and derivation rules (R2ML). Rule concepts are defined with the help of MOF/UML, a subset of the UML class modeling language proposed by the Object Management Group (OMG) for the purpose of .meta-modeling., i.e. for defining languages conceptually on the level of an abstract (semi-visual) syntax. From these MOF/UML language models we can obtain concrete markup syntax by applying a mapping procedure for generating corresponding languages from parameterized DTDs.
