A Query Language with the Star Operator

Johan Lindqvist, Torbjörn Lundkvist, Ivan Porres, A Query Language with the Star Operator. In: Ehrig Karsten, Giese Holger (Eds.), Proceedings of the 6th International Workshop on Graph Transformation and Visual Modeling Techniques (GT-VMT) 2007, Electronic Communications of the EASST, 2007.

Abstract:

Model pattern matching is an important operation in model transformation and therefore in model-driven development tools. In this paper we present a pattern based approach that includes a star operator that can be used to represent recursive or hierarchical structures in models. We also present a matching algorithm, motivating examples and we discuss its implementation in a modeling tool.
