Using concrete visual notations as first class citizens for model transformation specification

conference contribution

Model transformations are an important part of Model Driven Engineering (MDE). To generate a transformation with current MDE approaches, users are required to specify (or provide) complex meta-models and then engage in quite low-level coding in textual transformation scripting languages. This paper introduces a new approach to visualising source and target models that allows specifiers of complex data transformations to use the resultant visual notations for specifying transformations by example using drag and drop. We demonstrate the applicability of our new approach by an example case study.
