Abstract: Software design and implementation, in general, have to take many alternatives into account for decision making. Still, current approaches to Model-driven Architecture (MDA) typically transform in one and only one thread from Platform-independent Models (PIMs) to Platform-specific Models (PSMs). Also in the special case of automatically generating graphical user interfaces (GUIs) according to MDA, in most approaches one thread derives a Final User Interface Model from some higher-level model(s). We think that this is one reason for less than optimal usability of automatically generated GUIs. Our transformation approach (as implemented for GUI generation) allows exploring different design alternatives and evaluating the resulting PSMs according to given optimization objectives. Such a search approach leads to optimal PSMs according to these objectives. In this way, resulting GUIs can be tailored for different devices such as tablet PCs and smartphones. In this context, we design transf ormation rules for optimizing PSMs independently from concrete device properties, which are given in separate device specifications (Platform Models). We present a related case study for multi-device GUI generation and show that this approach facilitates the automated optimization of PSMs for several devices. (More)
