William El Kaim, Lead Architect at Carlson Wagonlit, provides a rare glimpse at all the choices, and the rationale behind them, he and his colleagues have made while building their organization's Service Oriented Architecture. How does your SOA compare? What will be the major evolutions in the next few years? How will the Cloud impact current SOAs?
Many approaches to object oriented modeling tend not to scale well when the applications grow in size and complexity. Context Mapping technique can be used to manage the complexity in large software development projects. In this article, author Alberto Brandolini discusses the many sides of bounded contexts and how to use them to build a context map to support key decisions in a software project.
In this article, Jean-Jacques Dubray questions the belief that code and models are two separate worlds. He presents a unified view of Model Driven Engineering, Architecture and Programming models. In particular, he introduces a novel approach to specify execution element semantics in DSLs.
