Towards an automatic transformation from a DEVS to an SDL specification

SDL is a graphical language, standardized under the Z.100 recommendation, widely used to represent telecommunication systems, process control and real-time applications in general. In this paper we have three objectives, first present an algorithm that allows the transformation of a DEVS specification to an SDL specification. Second we present a XML representation for the SDL language; this XML representation can help in an automatic transformation of the SDL model representation to a DEVS model representation. And third we present the first approximation to achieve this transformation in an automatic manner. Since we can transform DEVS to SDL, DEVS models can be represented using the graphical structures of SDL. An example of the transformation algorithms is shown, and the legitimacy DEVS concept is redefined for SDL.
