Towards Model-Driven Business Apps for Wearables

Rieger Christoph, Kuchen Herbert


Abstract
With the rise of wearable devices expected to continue in the near future, traditional approaches of manually developing apps from scratch for each platform reach their limits. On the other hand, current cross-platform approaches are usually limited to platforms for smartphones and tablets. The model-driven paradigm seems well suited for developing apps for novel and heterogeneous devices. However, one of the main challenges for establishing a model-driven framework for wearables consists of bridging the variety of user interfaces and considering different capabilities of device input and output. This paper seeks to investigate the challenges of app development for wearable devices regarding user interfaces and discusses a possible mapping of typical application building blocks in the domain of business apps. Ultimately, apps modelled on a task-oriented level of abstraction using platform-independent notations such as MAML or CTT can then be transformed into code that adopts device class specific representations.
