Ed Merks replied to Rui Curado's discussion How to make MDSD more attractive to the "mere developer mortal"?
"I think part of the solution is to tackle the problem head on. Identify all the stupid reasons people have for why they think modeling is stupid http://ed-merks.blogspot.com/2008/09/unbearable-stupidity-of-modeling.html and then address each of…"

Ed Merks replied to Rui Curado's discussion Is this community dead already, and what does that mean to MDSD?
"It certainly seems that MDSD practitioners aren't very communicative but of course most people are very busy, especially people with things worth saying. You have to stop and think about what's accomplished by coming here. Preaching to the…"

Ed Merks replied to Vlad VARNICA's discussion Is UML Metamodel too complex ?
"Complexity is in the eye of the beholder. What we understand well is simple and intuitive while what we have yet to learn is complex and confusing. Here we even have confusion about the complexity of the process by which one goes about building DSL…"

Ed Merks replied to Vlad VARNICA's discussion Should DSL be just an UML extension ?
"Trying to turn complex UML into a simple DSL is like trying to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. Doesn't it strike you that taking something complex and trying to make it simple by adding yet more things is a futile exercise? While you…"

Ed Merks replied to Vlad VARNICA's discussion What to use to manipulate its model ?
"What's an example of something you can't do unless you edit the XMI? It seems to me XMI is unfit for human eyes; even just the UUIDs are like a bad eye chart. From that perspective, there should never be a need for humans to manipulate it…"

Ed Merks replied to Vlad VARNICA's discussion Is EclipeUML 2008 the best iterative modeling tool ?
"It seems to me that one fundamental problem is that JEE programmers appear to have an aversion to modeling. Comments like "I don't need to see a picture of my code" are typical of the mindset. I suspect that approaches like Skyway…"

Ed Merks replied to Vlad VARNICA's discussion Should a model just be an abstract view of the real world ?
"It seems to me that both counter arguments prove the original point. When you capture a Java project as UML, you don't capture the design of every last Java statement, you capture the abstract structure of packages, classes, and methods, and…"

Ed Merks replied to Vlad VARNICA's discussion When to use EMF versus UML ?
"It seems to me that the two way mapping between Ecore and UML demonstrates a significant degree of equivalence between the two. I don't see that one could argue that Ecore doesn't support object oriented modeling. And I can't imagine…"
