Nowadays, object-oriented meta-languages such as MOF (Meta-Object Facility) are increasingly used to specify domain-specific languages in the model-driven engineering community. However, these meta-languages focus on structural specifications and have no built-in support for specifications of operational semantics. In this paper we explore the idea of using(More)
Domain specific languages for model transformation have recently generated significant interest in the model-driven engineering community. The adopted QVT specification has normalized some scheme of model transformation language; however several different model transformation language paradigms are likely to co-exist in the near future, ranging from(More)
This paper discusses platform independent Web application modeling and development in the context of model-driven engineering. A specific metamodel (and associated notation) is introduced and motivated for the model-ing of dynamic Web specific concerns. Web applications are represented via three independent but related models (business , hypertext and(More)
Metamodeling is raising more and more interest in the field of language engineering. While this approach is now well understood for the definition of abstract syntaxes, the formal definition of concrete syntaxes is still a challenge. Concrete syntaxes are traditionally expressed with rules, conforming to EBNF-like grammars, which can be processed by(More)
Metamodeling is raising more and more interest in the field of language engineering. While this approach is now well understood for defining abstract syntaxes, formally defining concrete syntaxes with metamodels is still a challenge.

Model transformation is a core mechanism for model-driven engineering (MDE). Writing complex model transformations is error-prone, and efficient testing techniques are required as for any complex program development. Testing a model transformation is typically performed by checking the results of the transformation applied to a set of input models. While it(More)
This paper discusses platform independent web application modeling in the context of model-driven engineering. A specific metamodel (and associated notation), companion of the UML metamodel, is introduced and motivated for the modeling of dynamic web specific concerns. Web applications are represented in three independent aspects (business, hypertext and(More)
This article describes the experiences of two independent start-up companies that were created in the white-heat of the early days of model-based engineering. Each company aimed to revolutionise software development by raising the level of abstraction through modelling. The article describes the context, technical innovations, business experiences, demise(More)
Meta-modeling is raising more and more interest in the field of language engineering. While this approach is now well understood for defining abstract syntaxes, formally defining textual concrete syntaxes with meta-models is still a challenge. Textual concrete syntaxes are traditionally expressed with rules, conforming to EBNF-like grammars, which can be(More)
