Domain-specific modelling has proved its worth for improving development speed and dependability of applications. By raising the level of abstraction away from the code and towards the structure and behaviour of an application, it also offers good possibilities for generating the same application from the same models, but for a wide variety of client platforms. This paper examines one example of domain-specific modelling for an embedded application, and how that was extended to a mobile platform.
