The Model Driven Architecture (MDA) aimed to produce applications that support multiple platforms using models instead of the conventional coding with less cost and time. The MDA development process separated to Platform Independent Model (PIM) and Platform Specific Model (PSM). Both, PIM and PSM are standing in different level of abstraction. The PIM focused on the business rules definition with no concern about the platform environment. It is the PSM role to emphasis on the implementation environment of the targeted platform. Although, the PSM models holding some technical implementation details about the targeted platform, but it's still considered too abstract to be executed in a run-time platform environment. The degree of abstraction can be controlled by the model mapping, given the MDA standard Platform Model (PM). The PM can be described as a platform's system manual that provides model mapping with a specific technical details required by the targeted run-time environment. In this work we explicitly employed a Platform Model (PM) designed by the Entity-Attribute-Value (EAV) concept to support the model mapping from PSM to Java platform. A case study provided as proof of concept to generate executable Java code that supports desktop and mobile platform.
