Static Analysis of Conformance Preserving Model Transformation Rules

Fazle Rabbi, Lars Michael Kristensen, Yngve Lamo
2018 Proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Model-Driven Engineering and Software Development  
However, to determine if a rule is conformance preserving requires sophisticated analysis techniques.  ...  Application of conformance preserving transformation rules guarantee that produced output models will conform to its underlying metamodel.  ...  CONCLUSION In this paper, we presented a static analysis technique for checking the conformance property of transformation rules.  ...

Algebraic Semantics of OCL-Constrained Metamodel Specifications [chapter]

Artur Boronat, José Meseguer
2009 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
A model is said to conform to its metamodel when it is a value of the corresponding model type.  ...  In this work, the concept of OCL-constrained metamodel conformance is formally defined and used for defining style-preserving software architecture configurations.  ...  In addition, the authors considered a number of analysis techniques with OCL properties, such as correctness preservation when a transformation rule is applied, among others.  ...

Integration of Triple Graph Grammars and Constraints

2012 Electronic Communications of the EASST  
Moreover, we describe how forward/backward validity of TGGs with constraints can be automatically checked, either by static analysis using an invariant checker, or by generating and validating metamodel  ...  Model transformations have to take such constraints of the source and target metamodels into account.  ...  Static Analysis The satisfaction of constraints can be invariant with respect to a set of graph transformation rules R.  ...

Enriching Constraints and Business Rules in Object Oriented Analysis Models with Trigger Specifications [chapter]

Stefan Van Baelen
1998 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
To highlight the importance of constraints in analysis models, they should be treated as rst-class model elements with a clear semantic impact on existing static and dynamic model elements.  ...  Optimal constraint support includes concepts for specifying event refusal, event transformation and event triggering mechanisms 1 With Constraint Business Rule, we mean rules de ned on the problem domain  ...  Derivation rules are outside the scope of this position paper.

Towards a Generic Framework for Trustworthy Program Refactoring

Dániel Horpácsi, Judit Kőszegi, Dávid J. Németh
2021 Acta Cybernetica  
Refactoring has to preserve the dynamics of the transformed program with respect to a particular definition of semantics and behavioral equivalence.  ...  There are a number of approaches to specifying program transformations on various kinds of program models, but trustworthiness of refactoring is still to be improved by means of formal verification.  ...  In this sense, analysis is not the process of building the program model but the extraction of static semantics, which may happen alongside the transformation.  ...

Validating Rule-based Algorithms

2015 Acta Polytechnica Hungarica  
Verification and validation indicate determining the accuracy of a model transformation / rule-based system, and ensure that the processing output satisfies specific conditions.  ...  A rule-based system is a series of if-then statements that utilizes a set of assertions, to which rules are created on how to act upon those assertions.  ...  In such a scenario, the transformation must ensure that the analysis model preserves the semantics of the design model.  ...

Reusing Model Transformations While Preserving Properties [chapter]

Ethan K. Jackson, Wolfram Schulte, Daniel Balasubramanian, Gabor Karsai
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Model transformations are indispensable to model-based development (MBD) where they act as translators between domain-specific languages (DSLs).  ...  We define a type of behavioral equivalence, called lifting equivalence, relating an original transformation to its reused version.  ...  Static analysis examines the interpretation of each rule in the new and original contexts, and checks if any rule patterns are sensitive to the choice of Λ.  ...
