This paper investigates the problem of authoring the construction of large distributed enterprise applications form high-level specifications of business logic. How far can we go on trying to apply a model centric approach as the one promoted by the OMG, the Model Driven Architecture? This is the basic question to which we try to bring some partial answers. For this purpose the paper presents an experiment that consists of providing concrete implementations of EDOC/ECA specifications by the Object Management Group (2002) on top of the OpenCCM middleware platform by Object Management Group (2002) and OpenCCM. The roles played by aspect modeling and platform modeling will be discussed. A framework for automating the projection of business specifications into executable code has been defined and implemented. It involves the usage of distinct technologies such as pure meta-modeling, model transformation and the appliance of PAC-AMMODEUS principles by L. Nigay (1994) - presentation, abstraction, control - to achieve software construction in an efficient and innovative way.
