Session Title Transforming a 15 year old model-driven application from C++ to Java

Session Type Case Study

Duration 45 minutes

Session Description

Model-driven code generation techniques look cool, shiny and new, but systems built using those techniques age just as systems built using “traditional” techniques. This presentation reports on the experience gained by transforming a 15 year old system using a code generator written in and generating C++ code into a modern Java application.
