An overview on the evolution of VIATRA

An open-access article, entitled 'Road to a reactive and incremental model transformation platform: three generations of the VIATRA framework' has been published in the latest issue of Software and Systems Modeling written by Dániel Varró, Gábor Bergmann, Ábel Hegedüs, Ákos Horváth, István Ráth and Zoltán Ujhelyi, major contributors and co-leads of VIATRA.

The paper summarizes the history of the VIATRA model transformation framework by highlighting key features and illustrating main transformation concepts along an open case study influenced by an industrial project.

The same issue includes another VIATRA related paper, entitled 'Query-driven soft traceability links for models', that discusses the application of model queries for robust traceability between fragmented model artifacts.
