Literature study on the state of the art in model transformation technology
2010 (English)Report (Other academic)
Model transformation is a central concept in model-driven development approaches, as it provides a mechanism for automating the manipulation of models. In this document we survey and classify existing model transformation technology. The classification differentiates between the problem space, i.e. characteristics of the problem to be solved by model transformation technology, and the mechanism, i.e. characteristics of the model transformation language. We show typical usage scenarios for model transformations and identify characteristics of the problems that can be solved with the help of model transformations. We synthesize a unifying classification scheme for model transformation languages based on several existing classification schemes. We introduce a selection of model transformation tools available today and compare them using our classification scheme.
