What is the QVT?

The QVT is an up coming standard from the Object Management Group (OMG) that specifies how Transformation Definitions can be written. The acronym stands for Query, View, Transformation. Queries and views on models are included in this standard because one could argue that both are very simple transformations that produce from a given input model an output model that consists of only part of the input model. In theory, definitions of queries and views can be considered to be similar to transformation definitions.
