Distributed systems are complex and, consequently, their design and development is not an easy task. In order to manage such complexity, it is not enough the use of the appropriate software technologies. Additionally, software developers need to differentiate clearly the several concepts used at different levels of the development (application domain, application architecture, implementation language and platform, etc.). This paper proposes the use of MDA in the development of CAM/DAOP applications, where CAM/DAOP is a component-aspect model and platform that we have developed for the construction of distributed applications. The main goal of this paper is to describe the process we followed to identify and separate the entities that live at different levels, and the transformations among them.
