The MOF (Meta Object Facility) query, view and transformation RFP, issued by OMG will result in a key enabling technology for model-driven development of large distributed systems. We have designed a transformation language which will meet the requirements of this RFP, and several others besides. The language is declarative and patterns based. Transformation descriptions are explicitly reusable and modular. Rules that make up such descriptions may be aspect-driven, allowing for transformations to be written to address semantic concepts rather than structural features. This paper introduces the language and its rationale, and shows how it is used to solve s small but non-trivial MDA problem.

28 citations in Scopus
Search Google Scholar™
2 citations in Web of Science®

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
