A Formal Approach to Software Synthesis for Architectural Platforms

Software-intensive systems today often rely on middleware platforms as major building blocks. As such, the architectural choices of such systems are being driven to a significant extent by such platforms. However, the diversity and rapid evolution of these platforms lead to architectural choices quickly becoming obsolete. Yet architectural choices are among the most difficult to change. This paper presents a novel and formal approach to end-to-end transformation of application models into architecturally correct code, averting the problem of mapping application models to such architectural platforms.
