I'm not all that sure about the direction that model-driven development appears to be taking. Don't get me wrong-I'm a firm believer in modeling. It's just that I think that there's a lot more to development than this. Here's my point: We need to distinguish between generative MDD and Agile MDD. Generative MDD, epitomized by the Object Management Group's Model Driven Architecture, is based on the idea that people will use very sophisticated modeling tools to create very sophisticated models that they can automatically "transform" with those tools to reflect the realities of various deployment platforms. Great theory-as was the idea that the world is flat. In my opinion, generative MDD is a lost cause for the current generation of developers. Agile MDD will be a struggle to pull off, but at least it has a chance of succeeding.
