   RE: [xml-dev] Coding Makes You Dumb

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Here is yet another...


The interesting part here is that this system generates something that
programmers use to build a code generator which produces the end executable
code. [sort of analogous to a compiler generator I guess.. but for some
other problem domain]

My problem with all these is that I have difficulty understanding how the
"powerpoint-like" application can collect enough information from the
subject matter experts to be able to unambiguously state "requirements"[i.e.
the systems analyst task] and come up with an appropriate software
architecture [i.e. the software design task].

Perhaps for well controlled domains that are well understood ... but in
general?? The holy grail hasn't been found yet I fear.
