Ontology and DSL co-evolution using graph transformations methods
The article is related to the problem of implementing consistent changes in the model of some subject area and in the syntax of domain specific language (DSL), dealing with problems in that domain. In our research, we explore an opportunity to provide the method of co-evolution of the ontology, used as a model of the subject area, and DSL. This method combines graph representation of the ontology and DSL with the set of rules, formulated in terms of an automated graph-transformation language. Applicability of the proposed approach is demonstrated using a real-life example of co-evolution of the ontology and DSL in the railway transportation domain.
