Systematic reuse requires the interplay of people, process, and technology decisions executed within the context of real world constraints. Are there success factors that will make a difference to reuse? This article offers five success factors that will help capture domain variations, ease integration, delve deeper into design context, work effectively as a team, and manage domain complexity.
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.
Jean-Jacques presents a unified view of Model Driven Engineering, Architecture and Programming models. He introduces a new approach to specify the execution elements semantics of DSLs. 6
When time to release is critical, Naked Objects allows you to quickly generate a presentation layer from annotated domain objects. 22
If you want to build model-driven software you’ll need to devise a methodology based on ideas and experiences from others. Johan den Haan shares with us 8 gotchas of Model Driven Engineering. 16
Sven Efftinge, Peter Friese, and Jan Köhnlein pass on Model-driven software development best practices they have learned after years of increasing success applying MDD. 6
In this article, Srini Penchikala discusses Domain Driven Design from a practical stand-point. The article looks at architectural guidelines and best practices that can be used in a DDD project. 53
