Low-code development platforms (LCDPs) permit developers that do not have strong programming experience to produce complex software systems. Visual environments permit to specify workflows consisting of sequential or parallel executions of services that are directly available in the considered LCDP or are provided by external entities. Specifying workflows involving different LCDPs and services can be a difficult task. In this paper, we propose the adoption of concepts and tools related to the composition of model transformations to support the specification of complex workflows in LCDPs. We elaborate on how LCDPs services can be considered as model transformations and thus, workflows of services can be considered as model transformation compositions. The architecture of the environment supporting the proposed solution is presented.

Abstract

Low-code development platforms (LCDPs) permit developers that do not have strong programming experience to produce complex software systems. Visual environments permit to specify workflows consisting of sequential or parallel executions of services that are directly available in the considered LCDP or are provided by external entities. Specifying workflows involving different LCDPs and services can be a difficult task. In this paper, we propose the adoption of concepts and tools related to the composition of model transformations to support the specification of complex workflows in LCDPs. We elaborate on how LCDPs services can be considered as model transformations and thus, workflows of services can be considered as model transformation compositions. The architecture of the environment supporting the proposed solution is presented.
