Quality Aspects in Model Driven Engineering (COMLAN Special Issue)

Our special issue on Quality in Model-Driven Engineering has now been finalized and published online in the Computer Languages, Systems & Structures journal linked to the  Quality Aspects in Model Driven Engineering track at QUATIC 2016

A Graph Solver for Automatically Generating Consistent Models

We report about a new model generator which automatically creates well-formed instance models that satisfy consistency constraints. Our model generator is based on a graph solver that natively operates over EMF-based (graph) models and combines advanced graph algorithms with rule-based exploration driven by traditional SAT solving techniques.

WEOD: International Workshop on Engineering Open Data

Have you ever thought how effective and practical use of open data might change our societies

Collaborative modelling with chatbots in social networks

Have you ever thought about using social networks and chatbots for collaborative modeling? Well, this is now possible. Read how you can built your models using natural language discussions on twitter and telegram

Executable UML Tutorial 2: Domain Analysis (Part 1)

In this second part of our executable UML tutorial we look at the key role of modeling domains to partition the system to be built

SecureMDE : International Workshop on Security for (and by) Model-Driven Engineering

We (Domenico Bianculli, Jordi Cabot and Salvador Martínez)  are organizing the first edition of SecureMDE 2018, 

Continuous Model-Driven Engineering

Keep reading to see how we managed to combine modeling and continuous delivery and how this combination is beneficial for both continuous integration / deployment and model-driven tools

Introduction to a new Executable UML Tutorial Series and Case Study

First in a new series of articles to take you step by step through the construction of a complete set of Executable UML (xUML) models. Presented with an initial set of fuzzy requirements, we will transform them into an unambiguous, detailed, constrained and executable statement of the desired system.

Automatic Generation of Web-Based Modeling Editors

The development of Web-based modeling editors still requires major programming efforts. Here we show how to speed up the process by combining the power of JavaScript and DSLs

Text to UML tools – Fastest way to create your models

Sometimes the easiest way to draw a model is to "write" it down. These tools will render nicely looking UML diagrams from a few lines of text.

JooMDD: Model-Driven Development of Software Extensions for Joomla

JooMDD supports Joomla extension developers with a standard MDD toolset saving time and effort during the development of new Joomla modules

Smart bounded verification for UML / OCL models

Correctness of UML diagrams annotated with OCL constraints can be checked using bounded verification. We show an automatic technique to choose the best bounds

AnATLyzer: An IDE for better ATL model transformations

IDEs for model transformation languages are still rudimentary compared to IDEs of languages like Java o C. AnATLyzer has been created to fill this gap and provide some advanced IDE features for ATL.

Conceptual Modeling Perspectives – Book to honor Prof. Antoni Olivé

Overview of what conceptual modeling is today and what are the perspectives that will make it more and more relevant in our society

Open PhD and Postdoc positions – Machine Learning for Model-Driven Engineering – Paris & Barcelona

Now announcing an open call for 1 Postdoc & 1 PhD position on Machine Learning for Software Engineering (joint supervision with CEA List)

Modeling, verifying and generating embedded software with Dezyne

Our review of Dezyne, a great tool to quickly model, verify and generate component-based software.

I will model your software for 5 USD

Well, I will NOT but Fiverr has plenty of people willing to take modeling gigs for as low as five dollars. Should I be happy that UML is getting popular enough to generate interest in Fiverr?

ZenUML makes drawing sequence diagrams easier and faster

A new textual UML tool (to generate graphical sequence diagrams from a textual DSL definition) is now in the market. How does it fare against PlantUML and other competitors?

Cognifying Model-Driven Software Engineering – Extended version

Cognification is the application of knowledge to boost the performance and impact of a process. We believe cognification could be a revolution in the way software is built.
