Implementing Petri Net Transformations using Graph Transformation Tools
Please login to add notes
Petri net transformations have been defined formally in the abstract framework of adhesive HLR categories, which allows rule-based rewriting of graphlike structures, similar to graph transformation. In this paper we discuss differences between Petri net rewriting and graph rewriting which makes it necessary to add checks and conditions when implementing Petri net transformations using an existing graph transformation tool like AGG. The extensions concern the preservation of Petri net transition firing behavior and the mapping of markings. As a running example, we present the RON environment, a visual editor, simulator and net transformation tool for reconfigurable Petri nets which has been developed as a plug-in for ECLIPSE based on the graph transformation engine AGG.
