Model Transformation: A Declarative, Reusable Patterns Approach
Duddy, Keith, Gerber, Anna, Lawley, Michael, Raymond, Kerry, & Steel, Jim (2003) Model Transformation: A Declarative, Reusable Patterns Approach. In Azada, D. (Ed.) 7th IEEE International Enterprise Distributed Object Computing Conference (EDOC'2003), September, Brisbane, Australia.
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.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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 theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
