Abstract

Meta Object Facility 2.0 Query/Views/Transformation (QVT) is OMG’s standard for specifying model transformations, views and queries. In this paper we deal with the QVT Relations language, which is a declarative specification of model transformation between two models. The QVT Relations language specifies several great features in practice, such as implicit trace creation support, or bidirectional transformations. However, QVT lacks implementation because its specification is not final and far too complex. The main contribution of this paper is to show how we integrated QVT constructs in our domain-specific modeling environment to facilitate a later implementation of QVT Relations-driven bidirectional model transformation.
