Abstract

Domain-specific modeling languages (DSMLs) are commonly employed in the model-driven development (MDD) of software systems. As DSMLs are tailored for a narrow application domain, a software system needs to integrate multiple DSMLs for its complete specification. In this paper, we review the suitability of selected testing techniques for each phase of an MOF/UML-based DSML integration process. We exemplify every test technique by providing a motivating example of its application to the composition of existing, security-related DSMLs. As for evaluation, we provide for prototypical software implementations.
