Meta-Model for Global Software Development to Support Portability and Interoperability in Global Software Development
Global Software Development (GSD) considers the coordinated activity of software development that is not localized and central but geographically distributed. To support coordination among sites, usually it is aimed to adopt the same development and execution platform. Unfortunately, adopting a single platform might not be always possible due to technical or organizational constraints of the different sites in GSD projects. As such, very often GSD projects have to cope with portability and interoperability problems. To address these problems, the authors propose to apply Model-Driven Architecture design (MDA) approach.
