Proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Model Transformation (ICMT'12)
Model transformations are mostly developed from scratch.
For increasing development productivity as well as quality of model
transformations, reuse mechanisms are indispensable. Although numerous
mechanisms have been proposed, no systematic comparison exists
making it unclear, which reuse mechanisms may be best employed in
a certain situation. Therefore, this paper provides an in-depth comparison
of reuse mechanisms in rule-base model-to-model transformation
languages and categorizes them along their intended scope of application.
For this, a systematic comparison framework for reuse mechanisms
is proposed to highlight commonalities as well as differences. Finally,
current barriers to model transformation reuse are outlined.
