Introducing Model Transformation

Model Transformations are a productivity tool that allow models to be manipulated to create more specialized or resolved models. The transformations can be applied to produce a variety of output models including logical and physical data models, XML Schema models, programming languages and more. The Model Driven Architecture (MDA) transformations use a flexible and fully configurable template system.
