Abstract

Model transformations are a core technology of today's model-driven software development processes. Graph transformations provide a state-of-the-art formalism to specify and execute such transformations in practice. This was the case in the Sensoria project, where graph transformations have been used as enabling technology in a number of applications, as well as the basis of research in many topics. In this chapter, we overview the research results that have been achieved in the theory and practice, concentrating on three key areas: (i) the high-level specification of transformations, (ii) correctness analysis of transformations using formal methods, and (iii) novel event-driven execution schemes relying on incremental graph pattern matching technology.
