Performance problems such as sluggish response time or low throughput are especially annoying, frustrating and noticeable to users. Fixing performance problems after they occur results in unplanned expenses and time. Our vision is an MDE-intensive software development paradigm for complex systems in which software designers can evaluate performance early in development, when the analysis can have the greatest impact. We seek to empower designers to do the analysis themselves by automating the creation of performance models out of standard design models. Such performance models can be automatically solved, providing results meaningful to them. In our vision, this automation can be enabled by using model-to-model transformations: First, designers create UML design models embellished with the Modeling and Analysis of Real Time and Embedded systems (MARTE) design specifications; and secondly, such models are transformed to automatically solvable performance models by using QVT. This paper reports on our first experiences when implementing these two initial activities.
