    For reuse to become practical at all levels of use (enterprise, national, and international), will require an infrastructure that addresses the problems that are unique to each of these levels, plus one that by its existence helps a consumer sort through all the Reusable Software Components (RSC) products offered View full abstract»

  • View extraction and view fusion in architectural understanding

    When performing architectural analysis on legacy software systems, it is frequently necessary to extract the architecture of the system, because it has not been documented, or because its documentation is out of date. However, architectural information does not exist directly in the artifacts that we can extract. The architecture exists in abstractions; compositions of extracted information. Thus,...

    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»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1224 KB)

    Domain-specific software architectures are one of the most relevant products of domain modeling. A new architectural style, with its corresponding architectural elements and constraints, is proposed. The style matches the constructive principles of the object-oriented and real-time communities, such that design decisions can be evaluated based on a mathematical analysis of real-time behaviour prio...

    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»

  • Domain analysis and generative implementation

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):356 - 357
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (60 KB)

    Automatic programming research in the 1970s rated their techniques using a power function. The power function of a technique is the ratio of effort required to develop a system using the technique over the effort required to develop the same system using conventional techniques. Software reuse recognizes that large gains in the power function are achieved by reusing system artifacts. Domain analys... View full abstract»

    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. ...

  • Inheritance: from code reuse to reasoning reuse

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):206 - 215
    Cited by:  Papers (3)  |  Patents (14)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (232 KB)

    In the object-oriented approach, a designer can, given an existing base class, use inheritance to build a derived class that extends, or that slightly differs from the base class, but in order to exploit the full potential of inheritance to build systems incrementally, the designer must also be able to reason about the derived class incrementally. This paper presents a specification notation and v... 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.

  • The solution to the re-use problem

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):369 - 370
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (20 KB)

    How will the problem of software reuse be solved? I attempt to make some predictions concerning some of the subjects that, while they may not currently be important to the area of reuse, will become central in the not too distant future. Let me begin by pointing out that the question itself is somewhat ill-formed. There is no single problem of reuse. The factors that block software reuse are many ... View full abstract»

    Domain-specific generators will increasingly rely on graphical specification languages-applets-for declarative specifications of target applications. Applets will provide front-ends to generators and related tools to produce customized code on demand. Critical to the success of this approach will be domain-specific design wizards, tools that guide users in their selection of components for constru... View full abstract»

    Domain analysis makes a necessary contribution in supporting systematic reuse: a focus on understanding and modeling common capabilities within related software applications and the nature of and reasons for variability. Traditionally, domain analysis has been based on structured analysis approaches such as data flow and entity relation modeling or on library taxonomy techniques such as faceted cl...

    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»

    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»

    For domain analysis to provide operators and operands that have the ability to both combinatorially amplify programming productivity and provide high performance code, we have to provide optimization strategies that can automatically localize code without engendering the huge search spaces of conventional optimization and transformation methods. The author proposes the method of Anticipatory Optim... View full abstract»

    Successful software products bring with them the same advantages and difficulties of successful products in other fields: they provide capabilities that their customers need and want, they provide income to the companies that create and sell them, and they must evolve to meet changing needs. Maintaining such software frequently means that it undergoes continual redevelopment and requires special s... 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»
