Highly configurable metamodeling environments and graph transformation techniques have been applied successfully in software system modeling and other areas. In this paper a uniform treatment of these two methods is illustrated by a tool called Visual Modeling and Transformation System. The concepts of an n-layer metamodeling environment is outlined with(More)
Model transformation means converting an input model available at the beginning of the transformation process to an output model. A widely used approach to model transformation uses graph rewriting as the underlying transformation technique. In case of diagrammatic languages, such as the Unified Modeling Language (UML), the exclusive topological matching is(More)
Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) standardized by OMG facilitates to separate the platform independent part and the platform specific part of a system model. Due to this separation Platform-Independent Model (PIM) can be reused across several implementation platforms of the system. Platform-Specific Model (PSM) is ideally generated automatically from PIM via(More)
Model-driven Software Engineering is one of the most focused research fields. Model processors automatically generate the lower level artefacts. Graph transformation is a widely used technique for model transformations. Especially visual model transformations can be expressed by graph transformations. This paper presents a visual control flow support of the(More)
Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) as a model-based approach to software development facilitates the synthesis of application programs from models created using customized, domain-specific model processors. MDA model compilers can be realized by graph rewriting-based model transformation. In Visual Modeling and Transformation System (VMTS), metamodel-based(More)
