  • Strategic Domain Driven Design with Context Mapping

    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.

  • Evolving Java Without Changing the Language

    InfoQ examines three techniques for encouraging experimentation with potential new Java language features - DSLs, the annotation processor, and moving the syntactic sugar from the language to the IDE.

  • Clojure and Rails - the Secret Sauce Behind FlightCaster

    FlightCaster, a realtime flight delay site, is built on Clojure and Hadoop for the statistical analysis. The web frontend is built with Ruby on Rails and hosted on Heroku. We talked to Bradford Cross about Clojure, functional programming and tips for OOP developers interested in making the jump.

  • Metamodel Oriented Programming

    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.

  • Developing a Complex External DSL

    In this article Vaughn Vernon explains the difference between internal and external DSLs and shows the steps involved in developing a complex external DSL.

  • Staying Safe and Sound Thanks to MDSD

    In this article, Andreas Kaltenbach explains how Model-Driven Software Development (MSDS) can help solving backward compatibility problems when creating a newer version of a software which can mean a new API or a new database schema that old clients cannot use. MSDS is used to negotiate the differences between versions to ease the upgrading process.

  • RGen: Ruby Modelling and Code Generation Framework

    This article introduces RGen, a modelling framework inspired by openArchitectureWare. RGen uses internal DSLs for defining metamodels and offers a full modelling stack for Ruby.

  • A Message Type Architecture for SOA

    This article proposes a new Message Type Architecture based on two DSLs to help manage the message formats in a SOA. The approach promotes reuse via the Enterprise Data Model referenced in message type definitions. It also helps aligning the Data and SOA governance processes.

  • Writing A Textual DSL Using 'OSLO'

    Microsoft unveiled the building blocks of their “OSLO” vision during the PDC event in Los Angeles in October. As key part the Oslo tools is a language for modeling textual DSLs. This article is an attempt to try and use the language to write our own language definition.

  • 8 Reasons Why Model-Driven Approaches (will) Fail

    If you want to start building software in a model-driven way you’ll need to devise some methodology based on ideas and practical experiences from others. In this article, Johan shares with us 8 gotchas of Model Driven Engineering. The article contains a rich set of references to help you go further in your investigations.

  • Beyond SOA: A New Type of Framework for Dynamic Business Applications - Part II

    In this second part of their article, the authors explore the architecture of Dynamic Business Applications and introduce the concept of a Resource Container. They demonstrate how this architecture can be layered on top of JEE and how it impacts implementation productivity.

  • Best Practices for Model-Driven Software Development

    Model-driven software development no longer belongs to the fringes of the industry but is being applied in more and more software projects with great success. In this article we would like to pass on, based on the experiences we have gathered in the past few years, our contribution to its best practices.
