2010 Journal of Software Engineering and Applications  
Model Driven Engineering (MDE) is a model-centric software development approach aims at improving the quality and productivity of software development processes. While some progresses in MDE have been made, there are still many challenges in realizing the full benefits of model driven engineering. These challenges include incompleteness in existing modeling notations, inadequate in tools support, and the lack of effective model transformation mechanism. This paper provides a solution to build a
