Bidirectional Model Transformations in QVT: Semantic Issues and Open Questions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract / Description of output

We consider the OMG's Queries, Views and Transformations (QVT) standard as applied to the specification of bidirectional transformations between models. We discuss what is meant by bidirectional transformations, and the model-driven development scenarios in which they are needed. We analyse the fundamental requirements on tools which support such transformations, and discuss some semantic issues which arise. We argue that a considerable amount of basic research is needed before suitable tools will be fully realisable, and suggest directions for this future research.
