Model Transformation in Web Engineering and Automated Model Driven Development

Nguyen Viet Cuong, Xhevi Qafmolla

Abstract—When dealing with the complexity of IT systems during their development as well as maintenance processes, modeling plays a very important role. The complexity and diversity of these applications emerges the need of flexibility and combining operations with existing models to create other new, more complex models. As more complex models are used, the importance of transformations between models grows. Model transformations allow the definition and implementation of operations on models and also provide a chain that can enable the automated development of a system from its corresponding models. In this context, approaches to model transformation techniques promise to bring productivity and efficiency to the whole process. This paper outlines practices from current model transformation approaches. We explain our focused research in the Web domain and introduce a novel two-way meta-model definition methodology that is best fitted to support transformation and other related operations. We introduce the approach of using hybrid transformation with ATLAS Transformation Language (ATL) to support automation of model driven development illustrating it with a use-case example. To achieve automation development we outline a formal approach to testing model transformation with automated test data generation.

Index Terms—ATL, Meta-model, Model Driven Development, Model Transformation, Web Engineering.
