Evaluation on how suitable open source tools are for model to model transformation: An industrial point of view
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Model-Driven Development can improve the development process, but it needs tools for model transformation. For industrial companies, the most important aspect is that the transformation tools should scale well, so that they can be used with huge models. There are some open-source model transformation tools on the market, and this report aims to investigate the scalability of open source tools for model transformation. For the investigation, Eclipse Modeling Framework is used.
This report identifies four open-source model transformation tools (ATL, QVT Operational, QVT Declarative, SmartQVT) and identifies the variables needed for a tool to be evaluated within the bounds of an experiment.
The only tool which could be benchmarked was ATL, which scaled linearly in both terms of transformation time and memory consumption.
