Common Pitfalls of Using QVT Relations – Graphical Debugging as Remedy
Sprache des Titels:
OMG’s Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) has emerged
as a new approach for the development of software. For
this, the Query/View/Transformation (QVT) standard plays
a central role, since it allows for the specification of model
transformations. Nevertheless, until now, QVT-tool support
in general and debugging support in particular in the context
of MDA are rather limited, supposable being a reason,
that the adoption of QVT in practice has not yet been
achieved. We therefore propose graphical debugging for
the QVT Relations language based on TROPIC - a model
transformation approach on the basis of Coloured Petri
Nets. By enabling debugging on the TROPIC level, one
gains several advantages when developing transformations.
Firstly, debugging can take place at a high level of abstraction.
Secondly, it serves for explicating the operational
semantics of a transformation. Thirdly, it provides a homogenous
representation of all transformation artifacts. As
a first step towards QVT debugging, this paper aims at a
deeper understanding of the operational semantics of QVT,
classifying common pitfalls by using QVT and discussing
how they may be identified at the TROPIC level.
