The actual benefits of model-driven approaches compared to code-centric development have not been systematically investigated. This paper presents a case study in which functional identical software was once developed in a code-centric, conventional style and once using Eclipse-based model-driven development tools. In our specific case, the model-driven approach could be carried in 11\% of the time of the conventional approach, while simultaneously improving code quality.
