Hello,

I want to know what is the different between the development with MDA (Model Driven Architecture) and with DSM (Domain Specific Modeling), when we develop which one should be chosen. I see that they are very similar but I need to know how I can choose between them.

Any idea?

There's differences!
IMHO, the main difference is in MDA, models are created using UML, a standard unified notation for software systems (independently of the domain) and in DSM, the modeling notation comes straight from the domain.

In MDA the notation is UML, and is the same independently of the application domain. In DSM, the notation is whatever notation is already used in the domain or specifically defined for it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain-Specific_Modeling#Comparison_between_DSM_languages_and_UML might shed some more light on this.
