Bentō is a component system for model transformations based on the idea of generic model transformations. In Bentō a simple component consists of a transformation template written some transformation language (e.g., ATL) and one or more concepts that describe the interface of the component. A concept is similar to a meta-model, but its elements (classes, references, attributes) are interpreted as variables that need to be bound to elements of specific meta-models. A component is adapted to a specific context by writing a specification describing how to bind a concept to specific meta-models. The adaptation makes the transformation template applicable to the concrete meta-models.
Bentō has been created by the Miso research group.
