Model driven architecture

Hi,

Is there someone developing with a model driven architecture (MDA)? How far are you? did you find some limits due to the tool?

Am I alone on that subject??

I will be happy to share with people working on that.

Re: Model driven architecture

What do you mean MDA? Developing in the sense of setting up an application layer, a data layer and then feeding that into a QVW? So a proper architecture for enterprise deployments?

Hi Byron and Eva,

if it is so (like Byron suggested), then I'll be happy to also do my little part in being unhelpful ;-)

In our company, the architecure is three-tier:

- First comes a qvw without GUI, loading data from the Database and saving qvd_files.

=> Then comes a "DataModel" that loads all the qvd_files and builds a data_model

=> That is then loaded (BINARY) into (most of) the apps.

Best regards,

Re: Model driven architecture

Hi,

as far as limits - so far I am conscious of only one real limit - well, rather a drawback, not an absolute limit - the size. A data_model of that kind can get huge and especially if people are connected via VPN and open an app using it, that might turn out troublesome.

You can, however - and we have tried that - create several different smaller DataModels, for just a few apps.

One thing we thought of trying, but haven't succeeded with yet, is

=> making a small DataModel that is sufficient for some apps and then

=> loading it BINARY into a secondary bigger DataModel and adding tables as per requirement for other apps.

HTH,

Re: Model driven architecture

Hi guys,

Sorry I was away!! great to see answers !!Ok, I will try to explain clearly.

My Goal is to be able to load any new source just with a parameter file update.

The script will load a metamodel. The metamodel sctrucure comes from the script, metamodel data comes from the parameter file.

After the script will load all the data.

I did that for a small project. I was working despite I had some conceptualization issues. and It just adapt to the project, not enough general to be usefull.

My points: could we do all operations on this way? do we need to process operations in a special order? if yes, how to find the best order to optimize it? any other limitations?
