Henshin logo

Henshin is an in-place model transformation language for the Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF). It supports direct transformations of EMF model instances (endogenous transformations), as well as generating instances of a target language from given instances of a source language (exogenous transformations). Its main features are:

  • Support for endogenous as well as exogenous transformations
  • Natural treatment and efficient in-place execution of endogenous transformations
  • Graphical syntax for transformations
  • State space analysis for verification

An alternative visual editor for Henshin has been developed as a student project. See [1] for more documentation and literature on Henshin and for the update site for the alternative visual editor.
