A Query Language With the Star Operator

Johan Lindqvist, Torbjörn Lundkvist, Ivan Porres, A Query Language With the Star Operator. TUCS Technical Reports 801, Turku Centre for Computer Science, 2007.


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 algoritm, motivating
examples and we discuss its implementation in a modeling tool.
