The main goal of my thesis was to implement a full scale Spring-Architecture using the Model Driven Architecture

What is a classical spring architecture? Well this is the best practice setup known to the developers and architects. The first sketches for this can be found in the Rod Johnson
books about the spring.
I sketched it in my theses like this...
