Software architectures, plug-in architecture, model-driven development


The improper mixture of domain concepts and infrastructure code in software systems is widely recognized as source for many problems concerning development and maintenance of software systems. In this paper, we present the architecture of an extensible software system that facilitates strict separation of domain concepts and technical infrastructure to support domain experts developing and maintaining software systems. In particular we describe and discuss two fundamental concepts of our architecture: a domain-specific plug-in model and a data modeling framework for the .NET platform.
