Using model-to-text transformation for dynamic web-based model navigation

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


One of the main objectives of modelling is to enable collabo- rative decision making and communication among the stakeholders of the system. It is essential that both technical and non-technical stakeholders can access and comment on the models of the system at any time. In this paper we propose a model-to-text transformation approach for producing dynamic, web-based views of models - captured atop different modelling technologies and conforming to arbitrary metamodels - so that stakeholders can be provided with web-based, on-demand and up- to-date access to the models of the system using only their web browser. We demonstrate the practicality of this approach through case studies and identify a number of open challenges in the field of web-based model management.
