  • How to Integrate Models And Code

    While creating models in a form or another is very common, their combination with the code has been challenging. As a result, models are usually thrown away once the implementation has progressed. The reason is partly in the modeling languages used and partly in the tools applied. The article describes proven practices for working with both models and code.

  • The Need to Focus on App Delivery Lifecycle in PaaS

    An App Delivery Platform-as-a-Service is not only a development platform. It is also a social platform, a deployment platform, and a user engagement platform. An App Delivery Platform-asa-Service is all about delivering apps that perfectly fit the business, it’s about creating business value, it’s about enabling the business to be successful!

  • Challenges and Opportunities in Mobile Application Development and Mobile DSLs

    Converged Mobile Solutions differ significantly from their Web and Desktop counterparts: they often rely on a sophisticated compared to their scope, while the User Experience and Device Capabilities are paramount to their success. We review the Mobile Technologies, Development Tools and Processes and detail how a DSL can simplify the delivery of Rich Cross Platforms Mobile Solutions.

  • Interview and Book Excerpt: Dan Haywood's Domain-Driven Design Using Naked Objects

    Domain-Driven Design Using Naked Objects book, by author Dan Haywood, covers the Domain-Driven Design topic using the open-source Java framework Naked Objects framework (which is now part of the Apache Isis incubator project). InfoQ spoke with Dan about the book, Naked Objects framework and its recent submission to be an Apache project.

  • Concrete: Rich, Customizable DSL Editors for the Browser

    Text-based DSLs are useful, an custom editor for the DSL is even better. Concrete allows to build customized editors for JSON-based DSLs/Models. InfoQ talks to Concrete's creator Martin Thiede.

  • Fulfilling the Promise of MVC

    When Trygve Reenskaug invented the MVC pattern for Smalltalk, he had originally envisaged that all models would come with default views and controllers. By combining Entity Framework 4, ASP.NET MVC, and his reflection-based view engine, Richard Pawson shows how that vision can be achieved using Naked Objects.

  • Success Factors for Systematic Reuse

    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.

  • mySOA: Agile, Governed and Sustainable

    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?

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Rapid Application Development using Naked Objects for .NET

    Domain driven design will help you build the core of an application, but then you still have to develop the presentation layer, duplicating the validation logic as you go. For internal applications where functionality really is more important than form, Naked Objects can be the answer. With proper annotation, Naked Objects can automatically generate a matching presentation layer in Java or .NET.

  • 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.
