Full text available as:
We propose a general method for the modernization of legacy information sys- tems, by transforming these systems into model driven systems. To accomplish a transformation into a model driven system, first a model is extracted from the legacy system. This model is then transformed into a model driven sys- tem, using Model Driven Engineering. This means that for the transformation, a model is constructed and an MDE tool is used to generate the executable transformation code for it. The method is not limited to the data-model of the legacy system, but is instead applicable to the entire system. Furthermore, the method has a best-effort character, and allows for automatic traceability. By means of a pilot modernization project, the method is validated with the Thinkwise Software Factory as the MDE tool.
