The companies are currently confronted with the implementation problem of their applications on several supports (Web, mobile and desktop). The Responsive Web Design [1, 2] partially answers to this problem as it does not allow having a mobile-native version, nor a desktop one. So, we propose a new approach which relies on the use of meta-model MDA (Model Driven Architecture) [3, 4] for the CIM and PIM models. Yet instead of having a PSM for each support, we propose a new open source framework [5] based on the adaptation of the MVC model [6] entitled as ZeroCouplage framework in order to have only one PSM, in which we will conceive and develop the same application and deploy it on several supports.
