From the Heterogeneity Jungle to Systematic Benchmarking

MODELS 2010 Workshops
One of the key challenges in the development of model transformations
is the resolution of recurring semantic and syntactic heterogeneities.
Thus, we provide a systematic classification of heterogeneities
building upon a feature model that makes the interconnections between
them explicit. On the basis of this classification, a set of benchmark
examples was derived and used to evaluate current approaches to the
specification of model transformations. We found, that approaches on
the conceptual level lack expressivity whereas execution level approaches
lack support for reuse. Moreover, only few of the approaches evaluated
provide key features such as an automatic trace model or the ability to
reuse specifications by inheritance.
