The Unified Modeling Language (UML) provides a wide range of graphical notations and textual means to describe a software system in an abstract way. Depending on the architecture of the system, the detailed design is often complex and difficult to maintain. The Model Driven Architecture (MDA), OMG’s latest approach to improve the software engineering process, helps to solve this problem. Shifting the focus of development from source code to the model will result in better software quality, faster iteration cycles and higher productivity. Although the “brand name” MDA is relatively new, the engineering problems that are being addressed have been known for a long time and various approaches have been taken to solve them. We can draw from those experiences to evaluate how to make the best use of MDA.
