    For years, playing video on the Web has generally required using one of the three applications: Apple's QuickTime, Microsoft's Windows Media Player, or Real Networks' RealPlayer. Now, though, the Big Three players face a challenger that initially became well-known for uses that had nothing to do with video: Adobe (formerly Macromedia) Flash. Even before Adobe's $3.4 billion buyout of Macromedia, F... View full abstract»

    Historically, software development methodologies have focused more on improving tools for system development than on developing tools that assist with system composition and integration. Component-based middleware like Enterprise Java-Beans (EJB), Microsoft .NET, and the CORBA Component Model (CCM) have helped improve software reusability through component abstraction. However, as developers have ... View full abstract»

    Large-scale software development efforts are increasingly based on product lines, a development process in which developers build the software for similar product families from reusable infrastructure and common application components. Existing software modeling approaches fail to support many product-line development activities. The Cadena platform, together with its core modeling concept, the Ca... View full abstract»

    The escalating complexity of software and system models is making it difficult to rapidly explore the effects of a design decision. Automating such exploration with model transformation and aspect-oriented techniques can improve both productivity and model quality. The combination of model transformation and aspect weaving provides a powerful technology for rapidly transforming legacy systems from... View full abstract»

    Experience indicates that effective complexity management mechanisms automate mundane development tasks and provide strong support for separation of concerns. For example, current high-level programming languages and integrated development environments provide abstractions that shield developers from intricate lower-level details and offer automated support for transforming abstract representation...
