An FMC ER Diagram Model of Model-Driven Mechanism (MDM)

There are a lot of notations for entity-relationship (ER) model, moreover, the similar things such the UML Class Diagram. The FMC ER Diagram seems quite simple, practical, and easy to understand. It seems quite suitable to illustrate the concept of Model-Driven Mechanism (MDM). MDM is the functional structure consisted of three elements in a system; … Continue reading

Model-Driven Applications and Runtime Models

The models involved in computer application can appear in any phase of the lifecycle, for the topics related with model-driven applications (MDApps), runtime (or run time), corresponding to runtime (or run-time) models, is most important [1]; in comparison with it, use development time for the development phases of the lifecycle, the corresponding models is development-time models … Continue reading

Some Discussions About Jorgensen’s 8 Principles for Model-Driven Applications

In What Is Model-Driven Application, mentioned that almost only one of the quite similar use for the term “model-driven application” (MDApp for shot by me) I’ve seen so far, is from the essays by Håvard Jørgensen (Havard Jorgensen) in 2009 on the blog of Frank Lillehagen and he [1]. The principles and some comments of … Continue reading

Is Model Driven Mechanism Meaningful?

Recently introduced a little of the concept of model-driven mechanism (MDM) on the blog, including its important form, multiple MDM. These topics, however, does not seem to be concerned. It is not theory but the basic principles about constructing a system. After they are initially gotten in the process to try to solve the practical problems … Continue reading

Multiple Model-Driven Mechanism: Making Metamodel Evolutionary at Runtime

Model-Driven Mechanism (MDM) is the basic answer to the fundamental question how models work. It is also for metamodels–if you acknowledge that a metamodel is a model [1]. Metamodel sets a range to discuss multiple model-driven mechanism (multi-MDM). Here, we can adopt a concise definition for metamodel from OMG’s MDA Guide Version 1.0.1, “A model … Continue reading

How the Modeling Knowledge Works in Model-Driven Mechanism

In the three parts of a model-driven mechanism (MDM) structure, “modeling knowledge” might be somewhat vague words since I have not fund more appropriate term yet. Some of terms such as “metamodels”, “specifications”, “rules” and so on may be more clear concept but I somewhat tend to regard them as one kind of the knowledge, … Continue reading

Model-Driven Mechanism and Model-Driven Systems

The term of model-driven mechanism (MDM) is coined by myself in practice and reflection of enterprise applications [1], and I increasingly find that the notion has a very universality. In 2005, I defined MDM [2] makes all or part of functions and behaviors (or the structure and form) of a system to be in control … Continue reading

Using Model Driven Mechanism to Explain Model Driven Software Development

In the beginning, the model driven mechanism is a group of principles we summed up in the design of software. Then found that it was a structural fundamental appeared in a wide range of systems, as well as to MDE/MDSD. In the “Presentation on Model-Driven Mechanism in Information Systems and Enterprise Engineering“, mentioned that “MDM … Continue reading

A Presentation on Model-Driven Mechanism in Information Systems and Enterprise Engineering

This is a presentation (slide) in ppt format: Model-Driven Mechanism in Information Systems and Enterprise Engineering. it is an extract from a lecture of mine on “Enterprise, Model, and Information System” at Management School, Jinan University, Guangzhou, China, on September 23, 2007[*]. This extract with a little of modification is around the concept of model … Continue reading

Models: Execution or More

A few days ago, I left a comment on Vincent’s blog, with his essay What is the focus of analysis: problem or solution? I said: I always had some doubt to so-called ‘Executable Model’, although it seems an inevitable result in the logic of MDA, but it also like a trap: if the models are … Continue reading

Model-Driven: An Essential Requirement Come from Customers

In the beginning [1], I chose the word group “model-driven”, which inspired by the concept of “parameter-driven” and “table-driven” in software development. Some the properties would be stored in a parameter-table that can be modified at almost any time, which will be accessed and interpreted at run-time or load-time, and thereby, be able to meet … Continue reading

A Roadmap of Research for Enterprise Applications

The subject is the software or information systems used in enterprise. It is comprehensive, need to support the management and the general business in enterprise, often referred generally as enterprise application or some times, I prefer the term of enterprise information system. In this essay, uses the Enterprise Applications and EntApps for short.   The … Continue reading
