Safe Composition of Transformations

By: Florian Heidenreich, Jan Kopcsek, Uwe Aßmann


Model transformations are at the heart of Model-Driven Software Development (MDSD) and, once composed in transformation chains to MDSD processes, allow for the development of complex systems and their automated derivation. While there already exist various approaches to specify and execute such MDSD processes, only few of them draw focus on ensuring the validity of the transformation chains, and thus, safe composition of transformations. In this paper, we present the TraCo composition system, which overcomes these limitations and evaluate and discuss the approach based on two case studies.
