Model-driven architecture (MDA)


This part of the framework describes model-driven architecture (MDA) and covers the following:

  • What is MDA?
  • Standards and technologies
  • MDA and interoperability
  • Conclusive remarks
  • References

Available training material

ATHENA has defined a training track on model-driven interoperability (MDI). The training track consists of three courses:

  • The AP4 course introduces MDA in the context of interoperability.
  • The AP5 course focuses on metamodelling, UML profiles and domain-specific languages (DSLs), and method engineering.
  • The AP6 course focuses on model mappings and transformations with a focus on service-oriented development with PIM4SOA, Web services, agents and peer-2-peer (P2P).
