||Q&A: MDA today and tomorrow
ADT sat down for a Q&A interview with Mike Rosen at Cutter Consortium's
recent Cutter Summit. Few people know more about Model-Driven Architecture

|Grady Booch on software modeling
"In many ways, the current economic climate is forcing us to rethink

What's behind Microsoft's Whitehorse modeler?
After intimations from company head Bill Gates, Microsoft is set to update its
modeling arsenal with software now known as ''Whitehorse.'' It is oriented for
''design for operations,'' allowing users to specify logical infrastructure
requirements early in the development process, and to verify application settings
against logical infrastructure. To read more, click
