In microservices, Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) has emerged as a powerful methodology for architectural design. Independently, the community of programming languages has investigated new linguistic abstractions for effective microservice development. Here, we present the first preliminary study of how the two approaches can cross-pollinate, taking the LEMMA framework and the Jolie programming language as respective representatives. We establish a common ground for comparing the two technologies in terms of metamodels, discuss practical enhancements that can be derived from the comparison, and present some directions for future work that arise from our new viewpoint.
