    Summary form only given. Traditionally, software-intensive systems have been acquired, developed, tested, and maintained as separate products, even if these systems have a significant amount of common functionality and code. Such an approach wastes technical resources, takes longer, and costs more than necessary. A product line approach to software can reduce development cycles, improve return on ... View full abstract»

    Summary form only given. The Global Software Industry has undergone some dramatic changes. From the high tech bubble of late 1990's, to the tech crash of 2001, to the globalisation of IT services, to the beginning of utility computing, to most recently the impact of governance regulations such as Sarbannes Oxley. The Australian software industry has also been dramatically affected by these global ... View full abstract»

    Summary form only given. Universities are under increasing pressure globally to both diversify revenue streams, and develop a role beyond simply teaching and research and, particularly in the technological disciplines such as our own, to act as agents for economic development and change. This diversification of roles naturally creates tensions between investigator led curiosity driven research and... View full abstract»

  • An agile approach to support incremental development of requirements specifications

    Publication Year: 2006
    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (336 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The development of requirements specifications has to face the imprecise and changeable knowledge available about the desired systems at the early stages of development. In this paper, we take advantage of that changeability to introduce an agile approach that helps identify suitable evolutions of a specification. This approach provides a solution with low computational cost to achieve frequent in... View full abstract»

  • Requirements capture and specification for enterprise applications: a UML based attempt

    Publication Year: 2006
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (304 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We propose a software development method for enterprise applications that combines the use of the structural concepts provided by problem frames, and the use of the UML notation. Problem frames are patterns that provide a precise conceptual model of what is the problem to be solved. The first step of our method is to match the current task with one of the problem frames that we propose for enterpr... View full abstract»

  • Proposed notation for exception handling in UML 2 sequence diagrams

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (537 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We present a way to handle exceptions in sequence diagrams. The proposal is inspired by the UML 2 Testing Profiles (U2TP) default mechanism and introduces the use of multiple logical levels of sequence diagrams and what we call dynamic gate matching. The suggested notation distinguishes exception flow from the normal flow of control, creating a visual separation, and providing a way of handling ex... View full abstract»

    Combining third party software components to customer-individual application systems requires first, standardized specification techniques for describing the technical as well as the business-related aspects of the services provided and required by the corresponding software components and second, automated compatibility tests in order to identify components fulfilling demands specified by compone...

  • A framework for checking behavioral compatibility for component selection

    Component selection and composition are the main issues in component-based development (CBD). Existing approaches suffer from the problem that the components retrieved usually do not exactly fit with other components in the system being developed. While formal methods can be used to describe and check semantic characteristics to better match components, there are practical limitations which restri... View full abstract»

    SwinDeW, an innovative decentralised workflow management system, has established an underlying framework for peer-to-peer (P2P) based business process coordination environments. SwinDeW-S extends SwinDeW to support adaptive composite service orchestration in the era of service-oriented computing. This paper comprehensively presents features of SwinDeW-S, including the P2P network establishment, th... View full abstract»

  • A runtime monitoring and validation framework for Web service interactions

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (294 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Web services are designed for composition and use by third parties through dynamic discovery. As such, the issue of interoperability between services is of great importance to ensure that the services can work together towards the overall application goals. In particular, the interaction protocols of a service need to be implemented and used properly so that the service composition can conduct its... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (424 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A key challenge to widespread adoption of service oriented architectures and supporting Web services technologies is the issue of maintaining consistency of interacting, long running, autonomous business processes that constitute distributed applications, in the presence of application level failures, concurrent activities and other exceptional events. One of the main sources of inconsistency is t... View full abstract»

    Recent progress in the field of Web services has made it possible to integrate inter-organizational and heterogeneous services on the Web at runtime. If a user request cannot be satisfied by a single Web service, it is (or should be) possible to combine existing services in order to fulfill the request. However, there are several challenging issues that need to be addressed before this can be real... View full abstract»

    The performance of the SOAP protocol has often been regarded relatively poor and requiring undue amounts of processor time, storage and bandwidth due to its use of text-based, metadata-laden XML encoding. There are many proposals available to tackle this perceived problem, however none of these coherently consider the different aspects of the problem: (1) message size; (2) message structure; (3) a...

    Software patterns have potential to enhance the comprehension, application and communication of agent oriented software concepts. To realize this potential, agent oriented patterns should be appropriately described with the aid of good pattern templates. However, many of the existing descriptions of agent patterns lack certain features that are critical to the description of agent patterns. In thi... View full abstract»
