QUALITY OF TRANSFORMATIONS PROVIDING INTEROPERABILITY IN SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE MODEL-DRIVEN DEVELOPMENT

Liliana Dobrica

Abstract

This paper defines the quality of model to model transformations based on a set of concerns addressed by an user and a developer. The user is a software architect that benefits of this quality during the design and evaluation of software architecture models. Then the paper performs an analysis of the quality on a recent approach of interoperability of tools and languages in a model-driven development environment. The key technique used to achieve interoperability stays in the alignment of various forms of metamodels. A special focus of discussion is on several aspects, such as the model transformation correctness, the management of the elements possibly lost while transforming or the back propagation of changes performed in the generated model to the original model.
