Our work helps security experts to visualize, (automatically) analyse and manipulate web security access-control policies, specially for Java EE
Negative or null results are hardly ever published though they are important in showing the paths which did not pay off. This special issue is a first step to change this
Read on to learn how formalizing model transformations and traceability mappings helps to chain, reuse and compose model transformations
How well does it fare the "MDE-version" of a well-known open source software project wrt the original? Find out what benefits (and shortcomings) MDE brings in this scenario
Our work “MetaScience: an Holistic Approach for Research Modeling” has been accepted at ER2016. This article
Few solutions target UML to NoSQL code-generation and even less consider OCL constraints. We present a UML/OCL transformation to Blueprints, an abstraction layer on top of a variety of graph databases
Have you ever thought about using model transformations to specify and enforce access-control policies? Check how we do it
We propose a data distribution algorithm for declarative model transformation based on static analysis of relational transformation rules.
Select the best tool to build a graphical editor for your DSL with these criteria and comparison of existing graphical language workbenches
I believe as a community we need to have mature UML and OCL benchmarks to help us evaluate, test and compare modeling tools. Do you agree?
How to speed up the access and queries on large models thanks to our language (and execution environment) to define prefetching/caching plans for specific modeling scenarios
After a complete failure in convincing students about the benefits of code generation, we laid out a set of recommendations for instructors and tool vendors to increase the chance of success in the adoption of model-driven engineering
Mogwaï is framework to store large models in a GraphDB NoSQL backend (thanks to NeoEMF) and efficiently query those models by means of a OCL to Gremlin (a query language for some NoSQL databases) transformation.
fREX is an open framework for reverse engineering of executable behaviors from existing software code bases (currently Java is supported) using fUML as a pivot language
Feature Models (FMs) are a mechanism to model variability among a family of closely related software
We show how to model complex queries at the model level by extending OCL with a library of aggregate operations (min, max, avg, rank, percentile,...)
A new column in the IEEE software promoting conference papers of special interest for software professionals. This time with Models papers.
Meta-analysis of 93 research papers reporting findings based on mining GitHub repositories. We report concerns on several aspects: dataset collection, replicability, sampling techniques and methodologies.
We're trying to get funding to study how existing knowledge in political science, social science and economy can be adapted to improve open source software development (making the word "open" count for real, beyond the code itself). But to make this possible we need your feedback!
Overcome the limitations of executing model transformations on large models by distributing them on top of a mapreduce infrastructure. We've done for ATL!
