Using XML Transformations for Enterprise Architectures (bibtex)
by Joost Jacob, Frank S. de Boer, Marcello M. Bonsangue, Andries Stam, Leendert van der Torre
Abstract:
In this paper we report on the use of XML transformations in the context of Enterprise Architectures. We show that XML transforma- tion techniques are valuable to the analysis, selection and, especially, the visualization of enterprise architectures. We propose a way to describe architectural information within a single XML document. Moreover, we propose transformational techniques to extract views from such a docu- ment and indicate how to perform a specific form of impact analysis on it. The transformations are expressed with the language RML, a compact yet powerful transformation language developed at CWI, which obtains its power from regular expressions defined on XML documents. We dis- cuss a tool that has been built on top of it to visualize the results of the transformations and illustrate the advantages of our approach: the genericity of XML, the application of a single technique (namely XML transformations) for various tasks, and the bene¯ts of having a model viewer which is in complete ignorance of the architectural language used.
