—In the context of an effort to answer the OMG RFP for Modeling and Analysis of Real-Time Embedded systems (MARTE), we are defining extensions to the simple time model of UML2. After a brief review of some time-related UML profiles, we focus on the specificity of our approach: the ability to take account of multiform time—a concept inherited from reactive(More)
Model-Driven Engineering intensively uses models and model transformations. Transformation tools ensure that the target model conforms to the target metamodel, so that it is syntactically correct. However, there is few assistance, or none at all, to guarantee that the semantics is preserved during the transformation. This is mainly due to the absence of an(More)
The OMG UML Profile for Modeling and Analysis of Real-Time and Embedded systems (MARTE) aims at using the general-purpose modeling language UML in the domain of Real-Time and Embedded (RTE) systems. To achieve this goal, it is absolutely required to introduce inside the mainly untimed UML an unambiguous time structure which MARTE model elements can rely on(More)
The forthcoming OMG UML Profile for Modeling and Analysis of Real-Time Embedded systems (MARTE) aims, amongst other things, at providing a referential Time Model subprofile where semantic issues can be explicitly and formally described. As a full-size exercise we deal here with the modeling of immediate and delayed data communications in AADL. It actually(More)
The UML Profile for Modeling and Analysis of Real-Time and Embedded (RTE) systems has recently been adopted by the OMG. Its Time Model extends the informal and simplistic Simple Time package proposed by UML2 and offers a broad range of capabilities required to model RTE systems including discrete/dense and chronometric/logical time. The MARTE specification(More)
In the automotive domain, several loosely-coupled Architecture Description Languages (ADLs) compete to provide a set of abstract modeling and analysis services on top of the implementation code. In an effort to make all these languages, and more importantly their underlying models, interoperable, we use the UML Profile for MARTE as a pivot to define the(More)
Current metamodeling techniques can be used to specify the syntax and semantics of domain specific modeling languages (DSMLs). Still, there is little support for explicitly specifying concurrency semantics of DSMLs. Often, such semantics are provided by the implicit concurrency model of the execution environment supported by the language workbench used to(More)
