Abstract : Since the introduction of the MDE-MDA-MDD ideas for software systems development several years ago, a number of different metamodeling and model transformation languages have been proposed. Although the OMG-s QVT standard specification has somewhat stabilized the number of new model transformation languages, it is likely that new ones will continue to appear, following different paradigms and approaches. However, the evolution towards the consolidation of models as a unifying, foundational and consistent concept for software-intensive system development, requires the realization of a set of ideal characteristics for the specification of model transformation languages. Several works have been proposed for defining characterization and classification schemes, and the set of these ideal characteristics. In this paper we present a comparison of characterization and classification schemes for model transformation languages, and an analysis of the OMG-s QVT specification with respect to this set of ideal characteristics. Although the MOF 2 QVT specification presents a good coverage of these characteristics, it still lacks a formal foundation, from which it could obtain several benefits.
