Abstract

In this paper we explore the issue of transforming models to models, an essential part of the OMG’s Model Driven Architecture (MDA) vision. Drawing from the literature and our experiences implementing a number of transformations using different technologies, we explore the strengths and weaknesses of the different technologies and identify requirements for a transformation language for performing the kind of model-to-model transformations required to realise the MDA vision.
