UPDATE (Jan 16, 2014): Our paper "Effects of Using Examples on Structural Model Comprehension" has been accepted for publication at ICSE'14.
the paper, we present a
controlled experiment for the empirical evaluation of Example-Driven
Modeling (EDM) for model
comprehension and domain knowledge transfer. The results show a
significant positive impact of using examples on the performance of
On Sep. 29, at the Model-Driven Engineering by Example workshop at the MODELS'13 conference we presented a paper Example-Driven Modeling Using Clafer. The paper shows a scenario in which Alice, an SME, and Bob, a BA, are communicating using examples, inferring abstractions, deriving new examples, and validating the abstractions.
The paper showcases the importance of redefinition, partial typing, and partial instantiation for the presented vision of performing example-driven modeling. The slides of the presentation are available at the publication's page.
Support for redefinition is partially implemented in Clafer 0.4.0. A preview release is available from binary distributions.
