Evaluating the Maturity of the Eclipse Modeling Ecosystem

Often, modeling tools are regarded as immature and therefore not ready for industrial adoption. Read on to see if there is any truth in this.

MegaMart2 – Model-based continuous development and runtime validation of complex systems

A new research project focusing on a scalable model-based framework for continuous development and runtime validation of complex systems

Quality Aspects in Model Driven Engineering (QMDE Track at QUATIC 2016)

I'm co-chairing this track bringing together MDE and quality. Selected papers will be invited to an Special issue in COMLAN Elsevier

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 bound

Practical and Scalable model-driven verification: Lessons Learnt

Is it possible to apply model-based verification techniques on large systems? Before saying no way!, check this keynote talk by Lionel Briand

anATLyzer – Static analysis of ATL transformations to uncover errors

Combination of static analysis and constraint solving to improve the quality of model transformations. Implemented as an extension of the standard ATL IDE.
