Evaluation of transformations with OCL [message #33638] Fri, 20 July 2007 13:02 Go to next message

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone has experience with evaluating transformations
with OCL. From my limited knowledge on the subject, I believe constraint
based checking can be used to verify that a transformation is correct.
By providing a redundant specification in OCL of the result of the
transformation can a transformation be evaluated? If anyone have any
tips, tools, papers or links that may be of interest I would appreciate it.

Thanks,
Andrew.

Hi, Andrew,

Are you dealing with metamodel-to-metamodel transformations, or with
model-to-model transformations in the same metamodel? Note that OCL (as
implemented in MDT) supports only the Ecore and UML metamodels, to date.

You may want to ask about this on the GMT and/or M2M newsgroups. There QVT
implementations in the works in these projects, and their communities have
some valuable insight.

Cheers,

Christian

Andrew,

we have written a paper a while ago in which we use OCL to specify the
preconditions and postconditions of transformations. It may contain some
useful information for you.

You can find a PDF version of the paper here:

Michael
