Abstract

Declarative approaches to specifying model-model transformation are an attractive approach because they can offer implicit source model traversal, automatic traceability management, implicit target object creation, and implicit rule ordering. However, when proposing such a declarative logic-based transformation language, there are two common objections. One is programmer unfamiliarity with declarative style, and the other is that of perceived performance problems. In this paper we address these issues, discussing the design of specific features of the Tefkat transformation engine intended to facilitate writing and debugging declarative transformation specifications, and describing important implementation techniques used to avoid performance problems.

Citation countsare 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.
