Abstract

We present Tefkat, an implementation of a language designed specifically for the transformation of MOF models using patterns and rules. The language adopts a declarative paradigm, wherein users may concern themselves solely with the relations between the models rather than needing to deal explicitly with issues such as order of rule execution and pattern searching/traversal of input models. In this paper, we demonstrate the language using a provided example and highlight a number of language features used in solving the problem, a simple object-to-relational mapping.
