Cross-Platform Migration of Software Architectural UML-RT Models


Publication Type:

Conference/Workshop Paper


17th European Conference on Software Architecture


In this paper, we focus on the development of a model migrator tool that automates the migration of software architectural UML-RT models from HCL RTist to RTist in Code. HCL RTist is a software development environment designed for the development of complex, event-driven, and real-time applications, solely supported in the Eclipse Desktop environment. On the other hand, RTist in Code offers a broader platform compatibility, being supported in Eclipse Theia and Visual Studio Code. The model migrator ensures a seamless transition for the tool users and preserves the effort and investment of RTist users, allowing them to take advantage of the benefits of the textual Art language and web-based technologies without having to recreate models manually. Furthermore, we present a model splitter tool that enables users to partition and organize Art models after their needs. Lastly, we validate a previously proposed approach for generating synchronization infrastructures in blended modeling through an industrial use-case, and demonstrate its novel application to model migration expanding its original scope.
