Surviving the Heterogeneity Jungle with Composite Mapping Operators
Abstract. Model transformations play a key role in the vision of Modelngineering. Nevertheless, mechanisms like abstraction, variation and composition for specifying and applying reusable model transformations – like urgently needed for resolving recurring structural heterogeneities – are insufficiently supported so far. Therefore, we propose to specify model transformations by a set of pre-defined mapping operators (MOps), each resolving a certain kind of structural heterogeneity. Firstly, these MOps can be used in the context of arbitrary metamode they abstract from concrete metamodel types. Secondly, MOps can be tailored to resolve certain structural heterogeneities by means of black-box reuse. Thirdly, based on a systematic set of kernel MOps resolving basic heterogeneities, composite ones can be built in order to deal with more complex scenarios. Finally, an extensible library of MOps is proposed, allowing for automatically executable mapping specifications since every MOp e...
