Model Synchronisation: Definitions for Round-Trip Engineering
Hettel, Thomas, Lawley, Michael J., & Raymond, Kerry (2008) Model Synchronisation: Definitions for Round-Trip Engineering. In ICMT2008 - International Conference on Model Transformation: Theory and Practice of Model Transformations, 1-2 July 2008, Zurich, Switzerland.
In a model-centric software development environment, a multitude of different models are used to describe a software system on different abstraction layers and from different perspectives. Following the MDA vision, model transformation is used to support the gradual reﬁnement from abstract models into more concrete models. However, target models do not stay untouched but may be changed due to maintenance work or evolution of the software. Therefore, in order to preserve a coherent description of the whole system, it is necessary to propagate certain changes to a target model back to the source model. However, as transformations in general are partial and not injective, they cannot be easily reversed to propagate changes. This paper presents a formal deﬁnition of round-trip engineering and the semantics of target changes in the context of partial and non-injective transformations.
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.
