Raise your level of abstraction
This is my first blog post, but one I hope to update regularly. I want to share my experiences with model driven development, code generation, and the entire development life cycle from a practical implementation perspective - getting things to work together on actual implementation projects, helping projects be successful, automating the lifecycle including code generation.
A little about myself and the tools I use...
I work at Walt…Continue
Since this is full of tool vendors (very successful in making more with MDE :-) ) I thought I could share with you that it is now possible to announce your tool/company/service in the modeling languages portal.
Show what you have to offer to a very targeted audience. There’s no confusion here, a visitor of this portal is, at the very least, interested in seeing whether software modeling and model driven engineering could work for him/her so every…Continue

Pfheww.. it's already two days ago that I left Cambridge, after three days of model driven development information overload.
On Tuesday, I chaired, together with my beloved egg timer, the…Continue

Model Driven Development proponents see a lot of advantages of using MDD techniques. Higher development speed, increased quality, more cost-effective, empowering less-experienced developers, just to name a few. If you look at these promises the question arises why the whole world isn't using MDD right now? Why don't we hear a lot of MDD success stories?
In a recent article I wrote about some of the…Continue

This is my first time post.
When I make the Requirement Specification , then I often use Use Case diagram, Use Case Description(I often use Sequence Diagram) ,State Machine Diagram, and more.
But, many people make the Requirement Specification by Natural Language.
And, they share that in Wiki.
# Of course, the tool used by the development domain is different.
They want to change that, they can…Continue
I've posted a few diagrams from a UML user model based on the conference app example a few people used at the conference: http://jtlog.wordpress.com/2011/06/02/conference-user-model/
I would be really interested to know what people think of this approach to UI code generation.

I've posted a quick writeup of the LWC challenge competition highlights presented at the Code Generation main event.
Here is the post:

May 24th the first Language Workbench Competition have been held in Cambridge (UK) as a warming-up of the Code Generation conference. The idea for a language workbench competition originates from a group of people during Code Generation 2010. A lot of new initiatives in the field of language workbenches are arising to facilitate the creation of Domain Specific Languages (DSLs) and their accompanied code generators…Continue

I didn't realise until a member of our team told me but apparently it's National Technology Day in India today.
Does this exist anywhere else? Is important enough to Western nations to celebrate?
Here's a blog post on it whilst you (and I) ponder on that...

Today, I finished reading the thick black book.. "Domain-Specific Languages" by Martin Fowler.
Here's the (personal)mind map of the book.(click to magnify img. or here to see in "share")…Continue
For those who have always thought “very nice WebML, but what’s a pity that it is a proprietary language!”, you will be happy to know that WebML has taken the very first steps in the OMG.
What do you think if WebML was a standard language like UML, BPMN or SoaML?

The web, Twitter, newsletters, advertisements and magazines continue to show a growing interest in Model Driven Development, and for model driven development tools that are often referred to as language workbenches. Apparently, this concept has found an audience amongst tool developers and software development organisations.
However, this attention has a downside - in the form of many different solutions, with varying functionality and qualiy, which makes the choice for the right…Continue
There are many situations in which you would like to extend or annotate a model with additional information but most times the last thing you’d like to do is to change its metamodel to be able to include this new information. As a solution, we propose to reuse the concept of UML profiles and adapt it for arbitrary EMF models.
