Model-Driven Development (MDD) is an approach to the development of IT systems that relies on the principles and technologies of the Model-Driven Architecture (MDA). MDA advocates the separation of system functionality from its implementation on a particular platform, and the use of (automated) transformations to move from platform-independent models (PIMs) to platform-specific models (PSMs). The MDA core technologies consist of the Meta-Object Facility (MOF), transformation specification languages like QVT (Query-View-Transformation) and MOF-compliant languages such as UML and CWM. MDD is already around for some years and is about to become commodity in software development due to its benefits (reduction on development costs, improvement of software quality, reduction of maintenance costs and the support for controlled evolution of IT systems). MDD has also been applied in many application areas, such as real-time and embedded systems, and telecommunication systems, and, more
recently, to the development and integration of enterprise information systems. However, the MDD research community is wishing to explore the bounds of MDD, by investigating new applications areas and combinations with other emerging technologies, like, for example, pervasive context-aware systems, Semantic web, Semantic web services, SOA and ontologies. This volume contains the Proceedings of the 2nd International Workshop on Future Trends of Model-Driven Development. This workshop has been devised as a forum to foster the further development and application of MDD. This workshop builds upon its predecessor, the International Workshop on Model-Driven Enterprise Information Systems. We received a number of high quality contributions, from which we selected six full papers and one short paper. In this way we could put together a very interesting programme that covers many challenges being faced by MDD researchers and practitioners. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the people who have contributed to FTMDD 2010. We would like to thank the members of the FTMDD 2010 program committees for the great job they did in evaluating the submitted papers in a very short time, and the authors for their contributions, which have shaped the final programme. Finally, special thanks go to the ICEIS secretariat for their support. We wish you an exciting, fruitful workshop, and an unforgettable stay in the wonderful city of Funchal, located in the lovely island of Madeira.
