Abstract: Model transformation are the core of model-driven software engineering. Typically an initial model is refined throughout the development process using model transformations to derive subsequent models until eventually code is generated. In round-trip engineering processes, these model transformations are performed not only in forward, but also in backward direction. To this end, bidirectional transformation languages provide a single transformation definition for both directions. This paper evaluates the transformation languages QVT Relations (QVT-R) which allows to specify incremental bidirectional transformations declaratively at a high level of abstraction and BXtend - a framework for procedural specification of both forward and backward transformation in a single rule set. Both languages have been used to implement the AST2Dag transformation example. The benchmarx framework was used for a quantitative and qualitative evaluation of the obtained results.
