    This paper presents a new approach to interoperability testing of CORBA implementations. The ORB Under Test (OUT) is embedded in the test system in such a way, that the behavior of either the client side or the server side of the OUT is controllable and observable. Components of the test system emulate the peer entities of the OUT and the applications based on the OUT in order to get direct access... View full abstract»

    The Model/View/Controller design pattern is very useful for architecting interactive software systems. This design pattern is partition-independent, because it is expressed in terms of an interactive application running in a single address space. Applying the Model/View/Controller design pattern to web-applications is therefore complicated by the fact that current technologies encourage developers... View full abstract»

    Many enterprise systems employ both object-oriented middleware (OOM) and message-oriented middleware (MOM). However support for the integration of object and messaging services, in particular for transaction processing across object and messaging components, is very limited. In this paper we introduce the concept of Dependency-Spheres (D-Spheres), a global transaction context for distributed objec... View full abstract»

    A new information system landscape is emerging that will be more model-centered than object-oriented, characterized by many models of low granularity and high abstraction. These models may describe various aspects of a system such as products, structural organization and processes. This latter category may be refined into manufacturing, software and business processes for example. Each of these su... View full abstract»

    There has been a growing interest in recent years in the use of abstract building blocks in system specification. Designs based on patterns and communities are two examples. However, these structures are then refined further during design and implementation, and it is often difficult to determine whether the eventual system implementation is a faithful reflection of the original properties of the ...
