Hello,

I'm currently doing my master thesis and have written some atl scripts. Now I ask myself if it is possible to get a visual representation of the atl mapping rules. I want to use a visual representation in my thesis instead of atl-code.

I already have read some papers concerning this topic, but there I haven't found some visual representation yet.

Is there any visual concrete syntax for atl-rules?

Hi

There are many model to model transformation languages. ATL is a
successful 'prototype for QVT'. It has a textual concrete syntax.

In principle all the M2M languages are rather similar, so if you want
graphics, why not look at a graphical M2Ms, such as Tiger, GReAT, QVTr,
UMLX ...

The graphical exposition has significant advantages and disadvantages
and so looking for detailed equivalence today may not be practical or
sensible.
