Ideas on Enterprise Information Systems Development

This blog is devoted to ideas on Enterprise Information Systems (EIS) development. It focuses on Lean Thinking, Agile Methods, and Free/Open Source Software, as means of improving EIS development and evolution, under a more practical than academical view. You may find here a lot of "thinking aloud" material, sometimes without scientific treatment... don't worry, this is a blog!
Every post is marked with at least one of Product or Process labels, meaning that they are related to execution techniques (programming and testing) or management techniques (planning and monitoring), respectively.

Proof of Concept for the BLDD Tool - Part VI

We have released a compilation of the posts with some more explanations on our proposal for the Business Language Driven Development (BLDD) draft, the technical report can be found here.

There is a lot of work to do on top of BLDD, such as:
- Defining in more detail the use of a companion textual Domain Specific Language (DSL). Probably with support of a Rule Engine.
- Implement an usable tool, we are investigating an extension of Drools for this purpose. Drools seems to be a good choice because it is BPMN compatible, implements a Rule Engine, and an Eclipse plugin. And, of course, it is open source.
- Implement BLDD on top of an ERP, our choice is ERP5, for the reasons listed on the first post of this series. This case study should show the applicability of the proposal.

You can find more "future work" in the report. We are open to collaboration and discussion.
