Abstract

Several important tasks performed by model driven development tools - such as well-formedness constraint validation or model transformations - rely on evaluating model queries. If the model changes rapidly or frequently, it is beneficial to provide live queries that automatically propagate these model changes into the query results. To ease the development and debugging of live queries, the development environment should provide a way to evaluate the query results continuously, helping to understand how the created query works. This paper presents a generic live model query visualizer that displays and updates the query results depending on their source models. It has been implemented for the EMF-IncQuery framework and presented here for validating BPMN models.
