    While many reusable methods assume that developers will eventually become motivated to search for reusable components, few have addressed the issue of identifying when in the development process potentially reusable information exists. In this paper, a method is introduced that embeds reusable information in a process model that is customized to the specific needs of development efforts. By reusin... View full abstract»

    Software reuse is generally considered by both practitioners and researchers as one of the most effective ways of increasing productivity and improving quality of software. To achieve successful software reuse, commonalities of related systems must be discovered and represented in a form that can be exploited in developing similar systems. FORM (Feature-Oriented Reuse Method) (K.C. Kang et al., 19... View full abstract»

    The paper presents a method for reengineering software architectures. The method explicitly addresses the quality attributes of the software architecture. Assessment of quality attributes is performed primarily using scenarios. Design transformations are done to improve quality attributes that do not satisfy the requirements. Assessment and design transformation can be performed for several iterat... View full abstract»

    This paper describes an advance in understanding the semantics of concepts and features in domain modeling for software reuse, incorporated into Organization Domain Modeling (ODM) Version 2. Previous approaches to feature modeling, such as FODA, use a single model with a particular semantics (AND/OR linkages, constraints) and a specific feature typology. ODM V2 utilizes a multi-modeling approach b... View full abstract»

    Reuse is pin-pointed as a key factor to improve productivity and reliability of software systems. Verification and validation of software components and the resulting system is important for reuse to be beneficial on a broad industrial basis. The paper suggests a modelling approach which is suitable for reliability certification of modular systems. It discusses a general reliability certification ... View full abstract»

  • Re-engineering of the Internet Stream Protocol ST2+ with formalized design patterns

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):268 - 277

    Presents a case study on the design of communication protocols using formalized design patterns. On principle, the approach adopts the well-known design patterns concept for reusing design solutions. However, a formal description technique (FDT) is applied as the design language, and therefore knowledge about pattern instantiation or its impact an the embedding context can be precisely specified. ...

    The expressiveness of higher-order typed languages such as Haskell or ML makes them an attractive medium in which to write software components. Hitherto, however, their use has been limited by the all-or-nothing problem: it is hard to write just part of an application in these languages. Component-based programming using a binary standard such as Microsoft's Component Object Model (COM) offers a s... View full abstract»

  • Reusable interactions for animation

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):320 - 329
    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (88 KB)

    The paper identifies reusable interactions and presents them as an important construct for the development and reuse of software for computer animation. A reusable interaction manages the flow of information among software components. They are first class entities that are easy to adapt, to organize hierarchically, and to operate dynamically. In computer animation and other time dependent systems,... View full abstract»

    Presents the development of a distributed object framework and its application in the factory automation domain. The framework was developed as a generalization of a machine monitoring system. The method used to create the framework was object-oriented domain engineering (OODE). The first part of the paper describes OODE and its relationships with object-oriented analysis and design (OOA&D) me... View full abstract»

    This paper reports on a research project within the Daimler-Benz group that identified problems in an existing very large software asset that hampered a successful reuse of components. After a general view on reuse-related problems, the focus of the paper is set on problems in this software asset. It presents an architectural analysis as an approach for the identification of these problems. A set ... View full abstract»

    There are many reasons why one may model a domain: improved documentation, enhanced understanding of applications, etc. The author has only one motivation for domain modeling-to design product line architectures so that customized systems can be built quickly and cheaply from components. His goal is to cast and encapsulate existing artifacts, domain knowledge, and domain specific implementation te... View full abstract»

    Presents a mechanism for automatically generating new classes from classes existing in a user library by using their modification histories. To generate classes that are likely to meet user requirements and are consistent with the existing classes, we propose three actors-Specifier, Finder and Integrator-that perform this mechanism. Specifier records the history of modifications between methods wi... View full abstract»

    What is the reuse problem? The four main dimensions of software reuse are: technology, process, infrastructure and culture. Reuse technology is a solved problem. The reuse process problem has also been solved. Achieving a reuse infrastructure is an area needing more understanding. Finally, reuse culture is the hardest problem to solve View full abstract»

    Combinatorial increases in programming productivity are possible by the introduction of high level operators and operands for composite data structures such as arrays, matrices, trees, record composites, etc. Such operators and operands can be composed to generate combinatorially many virtual components. However, the performance of such compositions is often inadequate because of code fragmentatio... View full abstract»

    Increasingly, the computers of the world are connecting to form large continuously evolving information systems. Ultimately there will be just one; perhaps this is already the case. Our quest for software reuse has an economic foundation: we want to do more for less cost. We want to build on what has gone before, we want new things to coexist with and leverage older things.

    A dynamic system is one which changes its configuration as it runs. It is a system into which we can drop new components which then cooperate with the existing ones. Such systems are necessarily built from reusable components, since as soon as the system is reconfigured to use some new components, those new components must reuse the existing, still running, ones. Design of reusable components in t... View full abstract»

    Two separate reuse initiatives exist in industry-knowledge management and software reuse. Within the communities of these initiatives there seems to be little awareness of the other initiative. In IBM there has been an effort to leverage the value of knowledge management and software reuse across the communities and improve integration of the efforts. The lessons learned were not what either commu... View full abstract»
