    Software architecture description languages (ADLs) were a particularly active research area in the 1990s. In 2000, the author co-authored an extensive study of existing ADLs, which has served as a useful reference to software architecture researchers and practitioners. However, the field of software architecture and our understanding of it have undergone a number of changes in the past several yea... View full abstract»

    With the emergence of the Internet, computer based communication has become an integral and vital part of our daily lives. The push towards converged solutions like NGN (next generation network), "triple play" or IMS, as well as new ways of providing services, e.g. Web services and grid concepts, will further increase our dependency on this basic communication infrastructure. Although the Internet... View full abstract»

  • Composing Components in Design Phase using Exogenous Connectors

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (164 KB) |  | HTML iconHTML  

    Composition can take place during different stages of component life cycle. We identify two main stages: design phase - components are composed into composite components for reuse; deployment phase - components are compiled and the resulting binaries are assembled into executable systems. Ideally, the design phase composition should maximise component reuse. However, this ideal is not realised in ... View full abstract»

    The paper presents a two-level software framework for distributed embedded applications. At the top level, an application is conceived as a composition of embedded actors that communicate transparently by exchanging labeled messages (signals), independent of their allocation onto network nodes. Signals are exchanged at precisely specified time instants, in accordance with the concept of distribute... View full abstract»

    Component-based software development is becoming more generalized, representing a considerable market for the software industry. The perspective of reduced development costs and shorter life cycles acts as a motivation for this expansion. However, several technical issues remain unsolved before software component's industry reaches the maturity exhibited by other component industries. Problems suc... View full abstract»

  • Practical Verification of Component Substitutability Using Subtype Relation

    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (154 KB) |  | HTML iconHTML  

    The flexibility which components provide for assembling applications makes them an appealing solution to many engineering problems. Its darker side is the need to exercise much greater care when replacing and upgrading components within deployed applications, to ensure their stability. Formally strong methods for substitutability checks are therefore desirable but so far, not many are practically ... View full abstract»

    The aim of this contribution is to present concepts and to propose techniques and a methodical support for automated software composition using "rich" semantic descriptions of components and services which we call annotations. Our approach is based upon a component description reference model for which both, semantic description patterns and inference mechanisms are defined. They offer variability... View full abstract»

    Component based software engineering (CBSE) allows to design and develop reusable software components that can be assembled to construct software systems via well defined interfaces. However, designing such reusable components for data intensive business logic often requires heavy data transfer between components over interfaces. Static interface definitions using basic data types or structures of... View full abstract»

    Performance evaluation of component-based software systems should be performed as early as possible during the software development life cycle. Unfortunately, a detailed quantitative analysis is often not possible during such stages, as only the system outline is available, with very little quantitative knowledge. In this paper we propose an approach based on queueing network analysis for performa... View full abstract»

    We propose a method for component-based software and system development, where the interoperability between the different components is given special consideration. The method uses existing notations and languages with their associated tools: context diagrams for analyzing and structuring the problem, composite structure diagrams for describing the overall system in terms of components and interfa...

    This paper presents a compositional performance analysis technique, enabling predictable deployment of software components on heterogeneous multiprocessor architectures. This analysis technique introduces (a) composable software and hardware component models representing abstract specification of the component behaviour and corresponding resources, (b) operational semantics enabling composition of...

    This paper presents a modular modelling methodology to formulate the timing behaviour of real-time distributed component-based applications. It allows to build real-time models of the platform resources and software components, which are reusable and independent of the applications that use them. The proposed methodology satisfies the completeness, opacity and composability properties, required to... View full abstract»

    Service-oriented architecture (SOA) is common in enterprise back-ends and is finding its way to mainstream desktop systems. SOA is traditionally built on top of an existing component infrastructure. This paper investigates how a similar architecture can be realized in mobile devices based on the Symbian operating system; in an environment that does not have a fully-fledged component infrastructure...

    Modern real-time systems are increasingly complex and pervasive. Model driven engineering (MDE) is the emerging approach for the design of complex systems, strongly based on the usage of abstract models as key artifacts, from which an implementation is derived through a series of well-defined (automated) transformations. The widely adopted input notation in MDE is the Unified Modeling Language (UM... View full abstract»

    The Trust4All project aims to define an open, component-based framework for the middleware layer in high-volume embedded appliances that enables robust and reliable operation, upgrading and extension. To improve availability of each individual application in a Trust4All system, we propose a runtime configurable fault management mechanism (FMM) which detects deviations from given service specificat...
