In this paper we explore the issue of transforming models to models, an essential part of the OMG`s Model Driven Architecture (MDA) vision. Drawing from the literature and our experiences implementing a number of transformations using different technologies, we explore the strengths and weaknesses of the different technologies and identify requirements for a transformation language for performing the kind of model-to-model transformations required to realise the MDA vision.
