MMT/ATL Transformation Language (ATL)
The ATL component of the M2M project aims at providing a set of model-to-model transformation tools. These include some sample ATL transformations, an ATL transformation engine, and an IDE for ATL (ADT: ATL Development Tools). ATL is part of the AMMA platform.
Questions and Discussions About ATL Usage
Questions and discussions about the usage of ATL should take place on the eclipse.modeling.m2m Eclipse newsgroup for the M2M project (more details about this newsgroup there), of which ATL is a component. Please, remember to prefix the subject of your ATL-related posts with [ATL].
The archives of the old atl_discussion mailing list may also be helpful.
