the topic of mapping definition, the concept of using QVT technologies,

the topic of generation, the Borland prototype provided for a generation
metamodel which included all aspects of diagram, domain, tooling, etc.
information for final use in code generation with JET templates.&nbsp;
This generation model was created with inputs from separate diagram
definition, mapping, and domain model(s). The question of whether or not
you can achieve all from a single mapping definition was raised, and
presented as an option in an IBM prototype.&nbsp; The majority seem to
believe that it is more conceptually pure and in keeping with the EMF
genmodel approach to have a genmodel only be provided for code
generation parameters and runtime configuration options.</span></font></p>

Not necessarily, and in fact it may be beneficial to not have them the

the best approach.</span></font></p>

This is again more conceptually simplistic and goes along with the
