The model is used dynamically to do extensive automatic checks for a range of construction errors that could produce poor performance or unreliability. The model also lets server behavior be dynamically visualized in real-time or retrospectively. There has been a lot of attention given lately to the topic of of Model Driven Architecture (MDA), which aims to create working systems by generating source code from successively transformed high-level component models. While doubts have been cast on the real-world robustness of this idea - and previous code-generation solutions haven't been a big success - there's no doubt that the possibility of working with software...
