    Recent developments in research on formal methods made formal specification languages to be widely used in industrial applications. In particular, formal specification languages are mainly used to understand and/or to analyze requirements of software systems, though they can be used at all stages of software development. When combined with object-oriented approach, formal specification languages h... View full abstract»

    Collection classes are ideal candidates for software reuse and therefore have an important role in the development and use of object-oriented class libraries. We analyze representative collection libraries, pointing out the main problems from the viewpoint of their practical usability in programs. We then identify a small number of independent concepts relevant to the design of libraries of collec... View full abstract»

    Software reuse is an important goal for every organization developing or using software. Recently, there has been progress on new ways to develop software popularly known as component based development (CBD). CBD is an approach to application development in which ready-made pieces of software are assembled together to enable the rapid construction of applications. The paper examines the role of ap...

    Interoperability is the ability of two or more software modules to communicate and cooperate with each other. The interoperability problem arises when software developers want to reuse legacy software systems, or when software systems are componentized and these components need to be connected in order to work together. Software modules can be functions, objects, or components which consist of mul... View full abstract»

  • Practical rules for reduction on the number of states of a state diagram

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):46 - 55
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (168 KB)

    Many object-oriented modeling methods adopt state-based formalisms to specify the behavior of objects. State-based formalisms, pioneered by David Harel (1987), are a powerful and yet intuitive tool in modeling the dynamics of objects. However, when a real world object has a huge number (or an infinite number) of states, we usually have to map them into a relatively small number of states in practi... View full abstract»

    The rapidly growing demand for rapid and cost-effective development of large-scale, complex and highly maintainable software systems has introduced a major challenge for the software community. The new trend is to adopt the component-based software development approach to overcome the challenge. The component-based software development approach is based on the concept of developing software system... View full abstract»

    We summarize our experience in developing and using the Snowball rapid systems engineering tool. We highlight the techniques we used such as: rapid systems engineering (RASE), instant code generation, instant reverse engineering and dynamic document capture. We elaborate on the implementation of these techniques and their advantages to systems development, problems we encountered while developing ... View full abstract»

  • Architecting for large-scale systematic component reuse

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):8 - 16
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (36 KB)

    Organizations building highly complex business and technical systems need to architect families of systems and implement these with large-scale component reuse. Without carefully architecting the systems, components, organizations and processes for reuse, object reuse will not succeed. Experience with software reuse practice and adoption experience at HP and Ericsson led us to a systematic approac... View full abstract»

    FSTINT is a legacy computer application which has been in use nearly 20 years. FSTINT interprets encoded models of finite state transducers (FSTs). The combination of FSTINT and a particular FST model typically is used as a 3GL source code pre-processor to generate native calls to utility products such as forms and message managers. Because FSTINT is written in assembler language, it is not portab... View full abstract»

    One of the biggest problems that object-oriented developers face today is having to integrate at the enterprise level, object-oriented applications with widely applied and quality active relational databases. This paper focuses on the issues of mapping object dynamic behavior into active relational databases. We present a technique for expanding active relational databases with object-oriented beh...

  • Library interoperability via inheritance

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (236 KB)

    To allow Eiffel programs to run on the Java Virtual Machine we have adopted a translation scheme which addresses issues of library interoperability for the two languages. We describe an approach which permits Eiffel code to inherit Java code directly rather than adopt a more conventional external call mechanism. With this approach we can choose to access the Java code as descendants or as clients.... View full abstract»

    In the study of heuristics for combinatorial problems, it is often important to develop and compare different algorithms, strategies, and parameters for the same problem. This comparison is often biased not only by different implementation languages, but also by different architectures. This paper proposes a framework described using design patterns, modeling different aspects involved in local se... View full abstract»
