Abstract

This paper describes the set of requirements to a model-to-model transformation language as identified in the MODELWARE project. We show how these requirements divide into three main groups according to the way they can be measured, how to decompose them into different grades of support and how they can be weighted. The evaluation framework has been applied to the current QVTMerge submission which targets the OMG QVT standardization.
