Abstract: The Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF) has become a widely used technology to model domain-specific languages by means of metamodels. The evolution of such metamodels requires the co-adaption of its instances and possibly other related artifacts which is a considerable challenge. In particular, if model migration is performed in-place, i.e. by changing models itself, conformance between metamodel and its instances need to be ensured permanently throughout the migration process. In this paper, we present an in-place transformation approach towards metamodel evolution based on the EMF model transformation tool Henshin. The transformation approach is presented by means of an example: The evolution of a Petri net metamodel, its instances and related transformations.
