1 - Primitive Operators for the Concurrent Execution of Model Transformations Based on LinTra

Performance and scalability of model transformations are becoming prominent topics in Model-Driven Engineering. In previous work, we introduced LinTra, a platform for executing out-place model transformations in parallel. LinTra is based on the Linda coordination language for archiving concurrency and distribution and is intended to be used as a middleware where high-level model transformation languages (such as ATL and QVT) are compiled. To define modularly the compilation, this paper presents a minimal, yet sufficient, collection of primitive operators that can be composed to (re-)construct any out-place, unidirectional model transformation language (MTL). These primitives enable any MTL to be executed in parallel in a transparent way, without altering the original transformation.

2 - Prueba de Transformaciones de Modelos con TractsTool

Las tranformaciones de modelos son un elemento esencial en la Ingeniería Dirigida por Modelos (Model-driven Engineering, MDE) y por ello una tarea que está cobrando relevancia es probar su corrección. Los Tracts ofrecen un enfoque modular y extensible para la especificación y verificación de transformaciones de modelos. Este trabajo presenta TractsTool, una herramienta desarrollada en Eclipse que implementa los mecanismos que proporcionan los Tracts.

4 - A Linda-based Platform for the Parallel Execution of Out-place Model Transformations

Context: The performance and scalability of model transformations is gaining interest as industry is progressively adopting model-driven techniques and multicore computers are becoming commonplace. However, existing model transformation engines are mostly based on sequential and in-memory execution strategies, and thus their capabilities to transform large models in parallel and distributed environments are limited. Objective: This paper presents a solution that provides concurrency and distribution to model transformations. Method: Inspired by the concepts and principles of the Linda coordination language, and the use of data parallelism to achieve parallelization, a novel Java-based execution platform is introduced. It offers a set of core features for the parallel execution of out-place transformations that can be used as a target for high-level transformation language compilers. Results: Significant gains in performance and scalability of this platform are reported with regard to existing model transformation solutions. These results are demonstrated by running a model transformation test suite, and by its comparison against several state-of-the-art model transformation engines. Conclusion: Our Linda-based approach to the concurrent execution of model transformations can serve as a platform for their scalable and efficient implementation in parallel and distributed environments.

6 - Model Transformation Testing and Debugging: A Survey

Model transformations are the key technique in Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) to manipulate and construct models. As a consequence, the correctness of software systems built with MDE approaches relies mainly on the correctness of model transformations, and thus, detecting and locating bugs in model transformations have been popular research topics in recent years. This surge of work has led to a vast literature on model transformation testing and debugging, which makes it challenging to gain a comprehensive view of the current state of the art. This is an obstacle for newcomers to this topic and MDE practitioners to apply these approaches. This paper presents a survey on testing and debugging model transformations based on the analysis of 140 papers on the topics. We explore the trends, advances, and evolution over the years, bringing together previously disparate streams of work and providing a comprehensive view of these thriving areas. In addition, we present a conceptual framework to understand and categorise the different proposals. Finally, we identify several open research challenges and propose specific action points for the model transformation community.
