Driving and managing architectural decisions with aspects

Alessandro Garcia, Thais Batista, Awais Rashid, Claudio Sant'Anna
2006 Software engineering notes  
Aspects are a natural way to capture widely-scoped architectural decisions and promote software architectures with superior modularity. General Terms Documentation, Design.  ...  For example, the third composition rule in the first template (Figure 3 ), named replicate, captures the fact that a list of architectural components should be replicated due to availability purposes.  ...  Reasoning ReplicationManager is in charge of replicating the critical components through the replicate interface in order to increase the availability of their provided services.  ...

Modular coordination of multiple autonomic managers

Gwenaël Delaval, Soguy Mak-Karé Gueye, Eric Rutten, Noël De Palma
2014 Proceedings of the 17th international ACM Sigsoft symposium on Component-based software engineering - CBSE '14  
We follow a component-based approach and explore modular discrete control, allowing to break down the combinatorial complexity inherent to the state-space exploration technique.  ...  Complex computing systems are increasingly self-adaptive, with an autonomic computing approach for their administration.  ...  Not only autonomic managers are available for re-use but coordinated assemblies of managers can also be made available for further re-use.  ...

Framework for Defining and Assessing Benefits of a Modular Assembly Design Approach for Exploration Systems

John T. Dorsey
2006 AIP Conference Proceedings  
The modular assembly approach was used as a basis for developing a Solar Electric Transfer Vehicle (SETV) concept and three modular assembly scenarios were developed.  ...  The modular assembly approach also allows the SETV to be entered into service much earlier than competing conventional configurations and results in a great deal of versatility in accommodating different  ...  of replications of each) for the three modular assembly scenarios.  ...

A Modular Design for Geo-Distributed Querying [article]

Dimitrios Vasilas, Bradley King
2018 arXiv   pre-print
We propose a modular architecture that is flexible and allows query processing systems to make trade-offs according to different use case requirements.  ...  Supporting efficient search on secondary attributes is challenging as applications pose varying requirements to query processing systems, and no single system design can be suitable for all needs.  ...  Our approach permits the first type of inconsistencies, and we present mechanisms for reducing the inconsistency window, including adjusting the amount of resources available for index maintenance.  ...

Failure Free Cloud Computing Architectures

Yolam Zimba, Hastings Maboshe Libati, Derrick Ntalasha

Dependability as a cloud service - a modular approach

Jan S. Rellermeyer, Saurabh Bagchi
2012 IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks Workshops (DSN 2012)  
For example, Java Enterprise Edition (JEE) makes it difficult to have transparent replication of services due to the above two reasons plus the fine-grained nature of interactions between its components  ...  These challenges are the need to isolate state in the application components so that easy migration and recovery are possible and the requirement for client transparency when dealing with different replicated  ...  We have therefore proposed a modular, loosely-coupled approach for building cloud services and have illustrated the concrete challenges using the example of OSGi, a widely used standard for modularity  ...
