Hello Islam,

I wrote to the list on 29/06/2006, but not as a direct reply to your e-mail. 
The papers I wrote are based on a central case study, which I described in my 
previous e-mail. The main paper in which I've used this case study is the 
following:

Wagelaar, D. and Jonckers, V. Explicit Platform Models for MDA. Proceedings of 
the ACM/IEEE 8th International Conference on Model Driven Engineering 
Languages and Systems (MoDELS 2005), Montego Bay, Jamaica, October 2005 - 
LNCS 3713, November 2005, pp. 367-381. (C) Springer-Verlag. ISBN/ISSN: 
0302-9743
http://ssel.vub.ac.be/Members/DennisWagelaar/docs/WagelaarMoDELS2005.pdf

I suppose that makes this a category (b) model. The paper itself just contains 
a "very small portion of the design to illustrate a specific point," but the 
models (and transformations) are all available on our website:
