AN IMPROVEMENT TO THE MIXED MDA-SOFTWARE FACTORY APPROACH: A REAL CASE

Gustavo Muñoz Gómez, Juan Carlos Granja

Abstract

In this article, we will offer a solution to the mixed MDA–software factory model which enables greater satisfaction of the requirements of a product line based on work by Gary Chastek’s team with the application of the required transformations for generating the three components necessary for the creation of product families using the mixed approach. In order to validate the chosen representation and transformations, we will focus on a real case which appeared in a previous article by Muñoz et al. (2006). Interesting option is to explore in greater depth the requirements of the family of programs that we want to create and to obtain the product line, framework and specific language from these. For this purpose, we will use Chastek et al.’s representation system (2001) which allows us to represent the requirements using three CIM models and a dictionary of specific terms. The mixed MDA–software factory approach (Muñoz, J., Pelechano, V.) enables the advantages of both approaches to be enjoyed using the PIM models as a starting point.
