    Abstract

    With the emergence of a number of model transformation languages the need for interoperability among them increases. The degree at which this interoperability can be achieved between two given languages depends heavily on their paradigms (declarative vs imperative). Previous studies have indicated that the QVT and ATL languages are compatible. In this paper we study the possibility to compile QVT Operational to the ATL virtual machine. We describe our experience of developing such a compiler. The resulting compiled QVT transformations can run on top of existing ATL tools. Thereby we achieve not only QVT/ATL interoperability but also QVT conformance for the ATL tools as defined in the QVT specification.
