Understanding the Model Driven Architecture (MDA)

Methods & Tools has published an article "Understanding the Model Driven Architecture (MDA)". This article describes the Model Driven Architecture, an OMG standard for software development.

At Examining the MDA I ask some fairly serious questions about whether it's a viable strategy for your organization.

When it comes to business application development, I suspect that MDA will prove to be a very small (yet important) niche solution.

It is true that although Model Driven Architecture utilizes UML standards, you will always be dependent on the modeling tool that is being used.

However, I believe that MDA can provide the necessary solutions to an organization's needs. Being part of a team that actually migrated an application to using MDA and created plugin transformation codes for two big organizations, I can say that MDA is a very useful and productive tool.

Still, MDA can make or break an application or organization's development. If applied wrongly, it can spell disaster but otherwise, organizations will reap benefits from it.

What were the modeling skill level of the people involved who were using the MDA tool?

Although some of the guys have been using Rational Rose before, most of the developers were fairly new to modeling in general. They only had a couple of months experience before actually using XDE w/MDA toolkit. The various transformation tools / plugins that we developed helped out a lot for them to adapt easily to a new environment.
