Session Title Model Driven Architecture with Executable UML

Session Type Tutorial

Duration 60 minutes

Session Description

This tutorial will explain, using examples drawn from real systems, how the combination of the OMG’s MDA process and the executable UML formalism can be used to revolutionise the way we specify and build software systems.  It will deal specifically with:

  • The Model Driven Architecture principle of partitioning a system into domains for which we construct platform independent models;
  • The use of Executable UML (xUML) for the construction of precise, complete, platform independent models that can be demonstrated and verified prior to implementation;
  • Automatic translation of the platform independent models into platform specific models and then into performance compliant code running on an embedded target.
Speaker(s) Chris Raistrick (Kennedy Carter)
Chris Raistrick joined Kennedy Carter in 1989. He is the lead author of the book “Model Driven Architecture with Executable UML”. For the past eighteen years, Chris has been applying state of the art methods, mostly based upon MDA and UML, on a wide variety of large-scale projects. Chris has previously spoken at various conferences including several Embedded Systems Conferences, UML <200x> and OOP <200x>.
