Textual Syntax (TS) as a form of model representation has made its way to the Model-Driven Software Development community and is considered a viable alternative to graphical representations. To support the design and implementation of text editing facilities many concrete syntax and model mapping tools have emerged. Despite the maturity of these tools,(More)
Model-Driven Software Development is based on standardised models that are refined, transformed and eventually translated into executable code using code generators. However, creating plain text from well-structured models creates a gap that implies several drawbacks: Developers cannot continue to use their model-based tool machinery, relations between(More)
Refactorings can be used to improve the structure of software artifacts while preserving the semantics of the encapsulated information. Various types of refactorings have been proposed and implemented for programming languages such as Java or C#. With the advent of Model-Driven Software Development (MDSD), the need for restructuring models similar to(More)
OBJECTIVES In this study, we analyzed the prognostic value of different MRI progression patterns for survival in patients with recurrent malignant glioma treated with the vascular endothelial growth factor antibody bevacizumab. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty-six adult patients with recurrent malignant glioma treated with bevacizumab or bevacizumab/irinotecan(More)
Template languages are widely used within generative programming, because they provide intuitive means to generate software artefacts expressed in a specific object language. However, most template languages perform template instantiation on the level of string literals, which allows neither syntax checks nor semantics analysis. To make sure that generated(More)
The majority of artifacts created during software development are representations of programs in textual syntax. Although graphical descriptions are becoming more widespread, source code is still indispensable. To obtain programs that behave correctly and adhere to given coding conventions, source code must be analyzed — preferably using automated tools.(More)
The ever increasing complexity of software systems promotes the reuse of software components to a topic of utter importance. By reusing mature parts of software, large systems can be built with high quality. The Reuseware Composition Framework can compose components written in arbitrary software languages. Based on metamodeling these components are merged(More)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Follow-up imaging after stent-assisted coiling of intracranial aneurysms is limited by signal loss in the stented vessel segment using magnetic resonance imaging or by streak artifacts caused by aneurysm coils using multidetector computed tomography. In the search for a noninvasive surveillance in this condition, we propose a(More)
