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.
