Architectural Issues: 

The QVTo project is separated in different parts:

  1. The stand alone QVTo parser
  2. The stand alone QVTo interpreter/executor with full support for BlackBox libraries
  3. The tooling with the editor, the debugger, etc
  4. QVTo Code Coverage tooling with JUnit integration support
Security Issues: 

There is currently no security issue as far as QVTo is concerned.

Non-Code Aspects: 

The build uses Buckminster on the Qvt-oml HIPP.

~3000 tests are launched on regular basic that cover all aspects of provided functionality (parser, executor, standalone, UI editor/completion, debugger, unparsing, etc.). 

Usability Details: 

QVTo Editor is conforming to the Eclipse user interface guidelines.

The debugger exploits the standard debugger framework.

Other tooling uses standard widgets.
