Special Report
This 1998 report explores the translation of MetaH into ACME.

Software Engineering Institute

CMU/SEI Report Number


This report explores the translation of MetaH into ACME as a first step into the translation of MetaH to other architecture description languages (e.g., Rapide) to take advantage of any toolsets developed for the target language. We start by comparing the meta-models of ACME and MetaH, we establish mapping rules for each MetaH construct, and we present a full MetaH example taken from the MetaH Library at Honeywell. The report concludes with a brief description of possible alternative paths to obtain (limited) Rapide behavioral specifications from MetaH timing and sequencing of operations.
