Scalability of modeling frameworks has become a major issue hampering MDE adoption in the industry. Specifically, scalable model persistence, as well as efficient query and transformation engines, are two of the key challenges that need to be addressed to enable the support for very large models in current applications. In this paper we demonstrate Mogwaï, a tool designed to efficiently compute queries and transformations (expressed in OCL and ATL) over models stored in NoSQL databases. Mogwaï

The produced queries are computed on the database side, benefiting of all its optimizations, improving the execution time and reducing the memory footprint compared to standard solutions. The Mogwaï tool is released as a set of open source Eclipse plugins and is fully available online.
