Lies, Damned Lies and UML2Java

By: Richard Paige, Louis Rose

Abstract

We review far too many research papers for journals and conferences. (Admittedly, we probably write too many papers as well, but that's another story.) We regularly encounter misunderstandings, misconceptions, misrepresentations and plain old-fashioned errors related to Model-Driven Engineering (MDE): what it is, how it works, what it really means, what's wrong with it, and why it's yet another overhyped, oversold, overheated idea. Some of these misunderstandings are annoyingly common for us to want to put them down on the digital page and try to address them here. Perhaps this will help improve research papers, or it will make reviewing easier; perhaps it will lead to debate and argument; perhaps this list will be consigned to an e-bin somewhere.
