MDSD with UML - New software release (Distributed Multiplatform Framework - 1.2.0) is out

Hi,I like to announce my current release as of this month. My software utilizes UML as a possible design entry tool (ArgoUML) and then an import step (XSLT) creates an internal representation. After that step a prototype stage is able to instantly interpret the model - a typical database application. When first trials do not reveal missing elements in the model, a final code generation step can follow (using XSLT again).The official release has been published via…See More

My kickstarter campaign about modeldriven HTML5 mobile apps

Hi,I like to officially announce my Kickstarter campaign here. It is about developing HTML5 mobile apps using modeldriven methologies.The campaign can be found here. And an article explaining a bit more the amount to raise will be found here.I have two goals with it. First it may be a successful campaign and I'll get the money to invest in contracted developers. The second goal is about the…See More

"This is an interesting way how to create applications! I thought about similar features as those about UML modelling or DSL coding or drawing may be too complicated for an end user. I would create a data driven approach first - eg. creating tables…"

Lothar Behrens commented on Jordi Cabot's blog post I failed to convince my students about the benefits of code-generation
"I think, one point should be shown when trying to convince students or professionals: Measure their time to get used with a UI framework, the time to write a prototype manually as the source for a template (like XSLT) and the time to actually…"

Modeling filter definitions to implement data based permissions

Hi,I am modeling business like applications using UML and like to specify filters on data to be applied based on roles. Starting with the filter definition I thought this would be a working solution:The user should see only those forms, that are owned by him/her. The application is therefore assigned with the user_application NM…See More

A universal parsing tool & a source code generator

Hi all,some time ago I stumbled about this project: http://www.codeworker.org/index.htmlI am interested in it as it supports also C++ and .NET. Is there anyone working with it?Can one use it to get the XText, XPand and the like stuff onto the C++ or .NET language?Thanks, LotharSee More

"I have another idea to the output generating stuff. Could it be easy enough to transform an UML model into a database representation? Are there any tools that cope with that step? Then any reporting tool based on databases could probably do the…"

"Hi, on 20th dec I have released a new version with bug fixes but also opened up the module that is responsible for code generation. The reason is because there are so many other open source tools, thus I propably would have no way to earn money…"

Are there any MDSD and embedded or FPGA based projects?

Hi,I am playing a bit with micro controllers and FPGA designs. Until now only with IVI and Icarus Verilog. Also in the past I developed with real PIC controllers.I ask my self if there are any open source related projects targeting embedded software using and or combining with FPGA or PIC / AVR / ARM designs.I know this is probably not discussed yet, but I think it would be interesting.There are some search results targeting embedded, AUTOSAR and MDSD:…See More

Rui Curado replied to Lothar Behrens's discussion Are there any attempts to get the same MDSD approaches into unit testing?
""I ask myself if there are any attempts of creating typical tests based on the occurrence of typical modeling artifacts." As you present it, I guess we could consider unit testing as a cross-cutting concern. However, due to the complexity…"

Final release of lbDMF (MDSD via UML / BoUML and XSLT) is out - with printing capabilities!

I have finally released my software and set it to production/stable. So when one has to do with prototyping and database applications, please review. Now printing has been added as an important business task.



To use the UML modelling feature, please download BoUML at http://bouml.free.fr and don't forget to donate :-)



The UML tool is used for the model driven aspect as an input but also I can reverse engineer, thus output to UML and then start MDA /MDSD for existing… Continue
