A taxonomy of model transformations was introduced in [T. Mens, P.V. Gorp, A taxonomy of model transformation, in: Proc. Int'l Workshop on Graph and Model Transformation (GraMoT 2005), Electronic Notes in Computer Science (2005)]. Among others, such a taxonomy can help developers in deciding which language, forma lism, tool or mechanism is best suited to carry out a particular model transformation activity. In this paper we apply the taxonomy to the technique of graph transformation, and we exemplify it by referring to four representative graph transformation tools. As a byproduct of our analysis, we discuss how well each of the considered tools carry out the activity of model transformation. © 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
