Shopping online has set a strong mark on the marketplace today and on the way the new generation of youth and couples resource. Every supplier has to go online to market its offers for a wider customer community in order to stay on top. One of the prime-time opportunities is to build web-based software solutions in order to support online sales. But there are so many types of products and patterns of marketing when thinking how to generate the content of a web page. GeoInformatics play a major role. Moreover, there are security concerns and all the operations that need management after the sales that the complexity of such a software system can be hard to implement and it can hardly foresee all future forms of such a business model. This is one of the main concerns of the Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) principles which did not cure important issues faced by software companies these days on developing complex software for reuse and protecting the more and more evolving applications against technological obsolescence. The Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) project from OMG promotes the use of metamodeling in order to drive the system’s design and implementation. In this context this paper presents:

  • an approach: it reviews the SmartModels approach briefly introducing its principles, basic entities and main elements when defining a business-model;
  • a prototype: SmartFactory which is based on Eclipse platform and its role is to validate the new approach. It addresses the paradigm of how to practically implement MDA principles and rules for software engineering. Therefore, it deals with important implementation issues based on Eclipse Platform.

In the world of software everything evolves: technologies, methodologies and applications. I believe that in order to provide an approach centered on models, which capture the know-how of a domain, it is of primary importance to ensure the independence between both the model and the software platform and between the model and the possible applications. This article promotes the idea that model-oriented programming is a better approach to solve these new challenges. The examples in this paper target the process of developing a platform for the deployment of online sales management systems.

Keywords: meta-modeling, informatics, on-line booking systems, smartmodels, software product lines, genericity.
