Model to Model Transformation Tool for the DPF Workbench

by Petter Barvik

Model transformations has a major part in Model Driven Development. This thesis
presents the DPF Transformation Editor, an extension to the DPF Workbench that
specifies model to model transformations for DPF specifications. There are quite the
collection of model transformation environments with diverse approaches to model trans-
formations. The purpose of this thesis is to see if we can integrate an existing model
transformation environment with DPF that supports translations between di↵erent mod-
eling languages. Some of these approaches to model transformations are explored in a
comparison of three model transformation environments: 1) Henshin representing tra-
ditional graph transformation on Ecore models, 2) Attributed Graph Grammar (AGG)
representing traditional graph transformation, and 3) Atlas Transformation Language
(ATL) representing model transformation on Ecore models. Our case study involves a
specific exogenous model transformation that translates an UML activity diagram to
a Petri Net model. The main focus with this comparison is to find a transformation
language that together with the DPF Transformation Editor provides a viable solution
to model to model transformations for DPF specifications.
