Michael Rauch and Christoph Gutmann explain how Eclipse Modeling technology is successfully applied to establish forward engineering in the domain of technical SOA. Modeling and code generation help them to drive standardization, increase quality and portability, reduce development effort and gain insight into dependencies.
Jürgen Mutschall ponders what is to be done to make MDSD a mandatory development methodology for every large scale project.
Darius Silingas reviews multiple real-world MDA cases by presenting the problems faced, analyzing what went wrong, and suggesting how to address similar issues in your projects and organizations.
Juha-Pekka Tolvanen provides advice and information useful for convincing colleagues and managers why MDD is worth using for development.
Darius Silingas emphasized the need for quality models in MDD, presenting a number of anti-patterns along with best practices for creating them.
Steven Kelly and Risto Pohjonen continue their hands-on session developing apps with MetaEdit+. (see: Moving From Coding To Model-Driven Development: Hands-On with MetaEdit+, Part 1)
Risto Pohjonen and Steven Kelly conduct a hands-on session using MetaEdit+ to create several graphic DSLs.
Marina Haase runs a highly participatory session collecting and analyzing ideas meant to help understand how MDSD works, and to uncover new techniques and tools.
Tim Trew presents several model-driven software development scenarios along with suitable testing approaches, contrasting the roles of MDSD and model-based testing.
Stéphane Bégaudeau discusses Acceleo, an open source code generator based on EMF and MOFM2T, presenting its basic concepts, how it was created, how it can be improved, deployed, and used.
Darius Silingas discusses Test-driven Modeling, Model-driven Requirements Management and System Documentation, and Architecture Planning & Code Review, noting that MDD is more than code generation.
