    The COOR (Classification of Object Oriented Code for Reuse) environment exploits the advantages of OO code to promote software reuse, performing classification and analysis using a software descriptor method based on a fuzzy query language for component retrieval. Fuzzy weighting mechanisms highlight relevant features of components for reuse in specific industrial application domains. View full abstract»

    The degree to which you trust your environment-including co-workers, software tools and systems-has a dramatic impact on the performance of your entire software development team. If you can't trust someone during a code review, what are the chances the code review will be any good? I've become increasingly aware of another aspect of trust: the trust of a method. A method is a disciplined approach ... View full abstract»

    Although history and science have provided lots of important bits and pieces of information about the world around us, we are still pretty short on getting a good overall understanding of what's going on. Humans have an uncanny knack for figuring out how to do something when there is no perfect answer. It is at this boundary that science merges with art, and progress is possible only when they wor...

    While there is no universally recognized standard for software documentation, there is a standard for documenting engineering and scientific software. Developed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the American Nuclear Society (ANS) in 1995, it is called the ANSI/ANS 10.3-1995 Standard for Documentation of Computer Software. The standard provides a flexible, robust framework for... View full abstract»

    Internet technologies have fundamentally changed the way machines can gather, store and share information. Devices can now transmit important information and instructions via the Internet. Now the standardization of Internet protocols and competition among Internet service providers (ISPs) have driven down the price of Internet connectivity, so vendors are beginning to incorporate it into a wide r...

  • Making the reuse business work

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):36 - 42

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (216 KB)

    Software reuse technology is ready now. In fact, enough companies have demonstrated substantial improvement-often as much as 90% reuse-to assure that it can be achieved. If we take 15% as an approximation of the current rate of “passive” reuse that individual engineers achieve anyway, and 90% as the figure that more than a few organizations are achieving, that is a gain of six times.

  • Application design for configurable computing

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):115 - 117
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (208 KB)

    Configurable computing systems enhance traditional computing systems through the addition of programmable hardware. Configurable computing offers the opportunity to change the partition at run-time by re-programming the hardware. Recent research has shifted to CAD and application development tools. Almost all existing configurable computing systems are based on field-programmable gate arrays (FPGA... View full abstract»

    Four longitudinal case studies (EnergyCo, BankCo, FinCo and BrokerCo) illustrate the costs and risks of early object-oriented technology adoption, including the difficulty of achieving systematic reuse in practice. The authors recommend general strategies and specific tactics for overcoming adoption barriers View full abstract»

    Developers and project managers need to understand how to constrain project requirements to reap the reuse advantages that RAD (rapid application development) tools offer. Designing exclusively within the capabilities of RAD Business Objects can stabilize projects, even enough to support larger applications. Four RAD tools are presented which use de facto standard RAD Business Objects, but each re... View full abstract»

    It's true that powerful hardware forms the basis of the Deep Blue chess computer's capabilities. However, improved software-based search techniques and innovations in partitioning the problem for a multiprocessor also played important roles. Garry Kasparov perhaps summed it up best when he said Deep Blue was making “human” moves. This observation underscores the role software played in... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (43)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (116 KB)

    Much object oriented code has been written without reuse in mind, making identification of useful components difficult. The Patricia (Program Analysis Tool for Reuse) system automatically identifies these components through understanding comments and identifiers. To understand a program, Patricia uses a unique heuristic approach, deriving information from the linguistic aspects of comments and ide... View full abstract»
