On Static and Dynamic Analysis of UML and OCL Transformation Models

Martin Gogolla, Lars Hamann, Frank Hilken
2014 ACM/IEEE International Conference on Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems  
We also discuss how to analyze transformation models dynamically on the basis of a model validator translating UML and OCL into relational logic.  ...  The transformation model is statically analyzed within a UML and OCL tool by giving each constraint an individual representation in the underlying class diagram by highlighting the employed model elements  ...  The implementation of the model validator that we employ is grounded on a translation of UML and OCL concepts into relational logic as described in [9] .  ...

MDA-Based Reverse Engineering [chapter]

Liliana Favre
2012 Reverse Engineering - Recent Advances and Applications  
An ISM is a specification of the system in source code. At model level, transformations are based on static and dynamic analysis.  ...  The static analysis builds a partial model (PIM or PSM) that must be refined by dynamic analysis. Dynamic analysis is based on testing and profiling.  ...

A light-weight static approach to analyzing UML behavioral properties

Lijun Yu, Robert B. France, Indrakshi Ray, Kevin Lano
2007 12th IEEE International Conference on Engineering Complex Computer Systems (ICECCS 2007)  
There are currently few tools for analyzing designs expressed using the Unified Modeling Language (UML). Tools such as OCLE and USE support analysis of static structural properties.  ...  Static analysis tools such as USE and OCLE can be used to check object models describing series of snapshots. Most of the analysis can be automated.  ...  The checking of UML models with Alloy requires the transformation of UML models to Alloy models.  ...

Multi-view Consistency in UML [article]

Alexander Knapp, Till Mossakowski
2016 arXiv   pre-print
We also give a classification of different techniques for multi-view UML/OCL consistency: consistency rules, the system model approach, dynamic meta-modelling, universal logic, and heterogeneous transformation  ...  We study the question of consistency of multi-view models in UML and OCL. We first critically survey the large amount of literature that already exists.  ...  By representing every facet of a model, expressed in various diagrams, in one and the same instance of the system model, static as well as dynamic checks can be performed.  ...

Object Dynamics Formalization Using Object Flows within UML State Machines

Thouraya Boubana-Tebibel
2015 Enterprise Modelling and Information Systems Architectures - An International Journal  
This makes formal analysis and verification of model properties extremely difficult. OCL, the Object Constraint Language is part of UML for the expression of system properties.  ...  Thirdly, validation of OCL invariants which are translated into temporal logic properties to be checked on the Petri nets derived from the UML models, requires integration of object flows within the state  ...  OCL invariants are specified on class diagrams. The latter model the static structure of a system in terms of classes and relationships between classes.  ...

UML is still inconsistent! How to improve OCL Constraints in the UML 2.3 Superstructure

Claas Wilke, Birgit Demuth
2011 Electronic Communications of the EASST  
In this paper we present an analysis of the static correctness of all OCL rules specified in the UML 2.3 superstructure document.  ...  Since the first OMG specification of the Unified Modeling Language (UML), the Object Constraint Language (OCL) has been used for the definition of well-formedness rules in the UML specification.  ...  We like to thank all persons that have been involved into the development of Dresden OCL.  ...

Pattern-based model refactoring for the introduction association relationship

Boulbaba Ben Ammar, Mohamed Tahar Bhiri
2015 Journal of King Saud University: Computer and Information Sciences  
In this paper, we propose a new approach of model refactoring based on the combined use of UML, B and CSP. UML models are described by class diagrams, OCL constraints, and state machine diagrams.  ...  Production and hosting by Elsevier B.V. on behalf of King Saud University.

Zsigmond Pap, István Majzik, András Pataricza
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The techniques based on OCL expressions and graph transformations are detailed and their limitations are discussed. To speed up the checker methods, a reduced form for UML statecharts is introduced.  ...  This paper describes methods and tools for automated safety analysis of UML statechart specifications.  ...  The hierarchy is resolved and the model is fully static, no guard conditions are in the model. The reduced form is generated by a series of graph transformation steps as follows: 1.  ...

Representing Dynamic Invariants in Ontologically Well-Founded Conceptual Models [chapter]

John Guerson, João Paulo Almeida
2016 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
While static invariants have received significant attention, dynamics enjoy marginal support in widely-employed techniques such as UML and OCL.  ...  This paper aims at addressing this gap by proposing a technique for the representation of dynamic invariants of subject domains in UML-based conceptual models.  ...  In order to address the shortcomings of the UML and OCL specifications, many approaches have been proposed to extend UML and OCL with dynamic aspects.  ...

2018 Information and Software Technology  
The results of this experimentation showed that our process is able to statically and dynamically detect architecture constraint violations on toy object-oriented applications, but also on real-world ones  ...  These constraints can be specified with predicate languages like OCL at design time and checked on design artifacts.  ...  Constraint Transformation We transform the OCL constraint specified on the UML meta-model into an OCL constraint specified on the JAVA meta-model.  ...
