    This paper describes DTC (documents, transformations and components), our approach to the XML-based development of content-intensive applications. According to this approach, the contents of an application and other customizable features (e.g. the properties of its user interface) are represented in terms of XML documents. In DTC, the software of the application is organized in terms of reusable c... View full abstract»

    In recent times, considerable attention is being paid to the development of software applications using software components. One of their main advantages is that they are reusable assets. Software product line is a wide spread approach toward software reuse in many organizations. The paper presents the SME experience for using software components in projects for development of Web applications in ... View full abstract»

    Many components are usually created within a domain engineering (DE) process. These components may exchange a great number of messages among them, and many times this interaction occurs within a specific group of components. The more messages the components exchange, the more complex the domain architecture becomes, thus compromising its understandability, maintainability and ultimately its reusab... View full abstract»

    Component-based development addresses the complexity of large applications by building software systems from reusable software components. To support reuse and successfully combine units of software, the contractual approach turns out to be well-suited to specify and to verify components and their interactions. However, as contracts must support functional and extra-functional aspects, they are fr... View full abstract»

    The guaranty of meeting the timing constraints during the design phase of real-time component-based embedded software has not been realized. To satisfy real-time requirements, we need to understand behaviour and resource usage of a system over time. In this paper, we address both aspects in detail by observing the influence of input data on the system behaviour and performance. We extend an existi... View full abstract»

    As the complexity of component-based systems grows and their life cycles shorten, managing and understanding the dynamics and operation of the system at runtime becomes evermore difficult and at the same time more important. It is essential for system engineers to gain comprehensive understanding on not only the static but also the dynamic structure of the system. In this paper, we suggest a novel... View full abstract»

  • QoS-aware mobile middleware for video streaming

    Publication Year: 2005, Page(s):54 - 61
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (432 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    State-of-the-art middleware and component technologies lack support for quality of service (QoS) management. Application developers, therefore, integrate QoS mechanisms into the application itself. In this paper, we propose a solution for how a mobile middleware can take on the responsibility for QoS management. We use a video streaming scenario to identify the QoS mechanisms that the middleware m... View full abstract»

    A software architecture description facilitates the comprehension, analysis and prototyping of a piece of software. However, such a description is often monolithic and difficult to evolve. This paper proposes a framework, named TranSAT (transformations for software architecture), for incrementally integrating new concerns into a software architecture. The structural and behavioral properties of a ... View full abstract»

  • Enhancing the management of a J2EE application server using a component-based architecture

    In this paper we describe our work on improved management of middleware. We argue that a component-based approach to design of middleware results in greatly enhanced and easily extensible management capabilities. As a proof of concept, we present our re-engineered, component-based version of JOnAS, an open-source J2EE server. We describe how we have redesigned and reimplemented JOnAS using fractal...

    This paper reports on the development of QoSOnt: an ontology for quality of service (QoS). Particular focus is given to its application in the field of service-centric systems. QoSOnt is being developed to promote consensus on QoS concepts, by providing a model which is generic enough for reuse across multiple domains. As well as the structure of the ontology itself an example application currentl... View full abstract»

    CBSE currently lacks a universally accepted terminology. Existing component models adopt different component definitions and composition operators. We believe that for future research it would be crucial to clarify and unify the CBSE terminology, and that the starting point for this endeavour should be a study of current component models. In this paper, we take this first step and present and disc... View full abstract»

    The objective of this paper is the formal definition of composition assessment metrics for CBSE, using an extension of the CORBA component model metamodel as the ontology for describing component assemblies. The method used is the representation of a component assembly as an instantiation of the extended CORBA component model metamodel. The resulting meta-objects diagram can then be traversed usin...

    Component-based software engineering, the process of building software systems from reusable parts, offers the potential to radically improve the way in which software is developed. It promises increased reuse leading to higher quality and reduced time to market. "Higher quality" means that the components must have a quality stamp in terms of what level of reliability can be expected from them. Th... View full abstract»

    Fault tolerance techniques use some form of redundancy (e.g. hardware, software, data) to deal with runtime errors and provide system repair, state restoration and error masking. However, these techniques come with a high cost in terms of system complexity and time penalties during system execution, which not all system can afford. A cheaper alternative is to survive an error by removing the affec... View full abstract»

    A primary aim of component-based software engineering (CBSE) is to benefit from the reuse of stable software components, in order to reduce production costs, improve system quality and achieve greater productivity. It is not surprising, then, that applying patterns to CBSE is an attractive goal, since patterns themselves are an expression of the desire to achieve benefits by reuse. We present an a...
