Generic Deep Copy Algorithm for MOF-Based Models

Ivan Porres, Marcus Alanen, Generic Deep Copy Algorithm for MOF-Based Models. In: Model Driven Architecture: Foundations and Applications, 49-60, University of Twente, 2003.


This paper discusses the problem of duplicating a subset of a model based on the Meta Object Facility (MOF), such as a UML model. We propose a new algorithm that works at the metamodel level and deals with the specific semantics of UML models. This algorithm can be used as a building block to implement tools that transform models.
