Survey about Visual Annotations for Software Models


Joerg Rech

Dear software practitioner,
During software development, we often experience problems regarding
the compilability, quality (e.g., maintainability), or conformance of
our software. With a model-driven approach such as MDSD (Model-Driven
Software Development), we might work on a higher abstraction level
( i.e., software models), but we (will) still experience similar
problems during the development of our software models.

Therefore, in the context of the VIDE project, we are conducting a
survey about how software modeling environments should annotate
software models in order to provide additional information about these
problems. Our goal is to get feedback from you on several annotation
concepts and your opinion about other characteristics of defect

Hence, we would like to invite you and members of your organization to
participate in the survey at
Answering the survey should take about 20-30 minutes. The survey will
close on 1 October 2007.

We will draw five winners from all participants who finalized the
survey; they will get an Amazon gift certificate (either or
from a local site) for $50.

Please pass information about this survey on to your colleagues and
managers as well as other contacts who might be interested in this

Many thanks in advance,
Joerg Rech and Axel Spriestersbach
