A primer to model queries

Models are not black holes

The principle of model-driven engineering (MDE) was discussed in my previous blog post. When one reads about MDE, there is a lot of talk about creating models, as if all the engineers ever do was creating models using shiny diagram editors; like "the focus of the engineering approach is to build models of the system under design, first on a high level of abstraction, then gradually approaching platform-specific design decisions", and so on. One could even start to believe that models are some kind of information theory black hole: information is only put in, but never comes out. Well, this is not the case.

Modeling... why bother?

Modeling in software engineering... why bother?

When I first heard about modeling in software engineering, I was quite skeptical. After all, why bother to create models first, when one can jump right into coding the software?

Kicking off my research blog


First of all: hi everyone, this is Gábor Bergmann. I'm currently pursuing my PhD in model-driven software design, and I will blog from time to time some interesting tidbits about my research and its relationship with EMF-IncQuery.
