I'm just curious what your guys thoughts are on Model Driven Architecture?
At my current place of employment (very large company), this special
"elitist" group (that I don't believe have ever coded in the trenches since
maybe 1979) is pushing for everything to be MDA, MDA, MDA. They even want
database schemas generated off of MDA tools. Personally I think that is an
incredibly dumb approach (for a small app sure, but for large comapny
databases to have them designed by how you view things in OO terms is not
the best idea. Over time, apps will change, but the data will live on.)
I also don't even get what these MDA tools give you? Ok so maybe it can
auto-generate some code for you. That auto-generated code is never the
difficult part of application development or even really the big time
consumer. Maybe I'm just being too cynical, so I'd be curious on some of
