The current paper presents a technique for generating standalone model transformation plugins for the EJB 3.0 platform from platform-independent specifications of transformations given by a combination of graph transformation and abstract state machine rules (as used within the Viatra2 framework). As a result, the design of transformations can be separated from the execution of transformations. This also enables to run platform-independent Viatra2 transformations on very large models stored in underlying relational databases or to integrate such transformations into existing business applications.
