Leveraging software architecture techniques to build up well defined software projects like the model-view-controller-pattern has several advantages: the separation of self-contained functionality and the generation of interactive modules. Creating an abstract application programming interface (API), the main intention is to develop individual software projects which can profit from sharing functionality. As shown in the previous presentation on the business perspective, the idea is to create a reusable core data model - the DDI Discovery Vocabulary, which can be extended and adjusted to the requirements of an individual project. In this presentation, however, we will show how the abstract implementation of the DDI Discovery Vocabulary model integrates well into structured software architecture of a software project and how it might be extended. This is shown by means of the technical implementation of the use case project called MISSY. Based on the business perspective and the requirements to the data model of a project, some possible physical persistence implementations to store data are presented as an API. We will also give a step-by-step guidance into how a project, which uses the DDI Discovery Vocabulary as an exchange format and core data model, can be build up from scratch.
