The generation of performance models from architectural models has been tackled with well-founded approaches in the last decade, whereas there is a clear lack of automation in the backward path that brings the analysis results back to the software architecture.

Abstract

The generation of performance models from architectural models has been tackled with well-founded approaches in the last decade, whereas there is a clear lack of automation in the backward path that brings the analysis results back to the software architecture. It is common to iteratively modify a (generated) performance model until performance indices meet the requirements. However, propagating the performance model modifications back to the original architectural model is a complex problem. In this paper we make a first step in this direction, in that we use the JTL language for specifying a bidirectional model transformation between UML models and Queueing Networks, so working towards an automated round-trip process between software architectural models and performance models.
