TOWARD REUSABILITY IN WEB MODELING - Using QVT Relations

Ali Fatolahi, Stéphane S. Somé, Timothy C. Lethbridge

Abstract

In this paper, a model-driven approach for web development is presented. The approach contains two important elements that serve reusability: an abstract model and a set of transformations. Transformations act as the chaining feature of model-driven development (MDD); that is transformations add to the value of models by transforming them to those of the desired type. As a standard for developing transformations, QVT relations are used in this paper to specify mappings from a high-level model to an abstract model of web-based applications. This model is abstract since it does not rely on any specific web platform but on the common features of web applications. Having this model and its corresponding transformations, model-driven web development for specific platforms becomes faster and more reusable.
