Specifying Reusable Controllers for Software Components [chapter]

José M. Troya, Antonio Vallecillo
1999 Formal Methods for Open Object-Based Distributed Systems  
This paper presents a formal framework in Object-Z for specifying reusable controllers, based on a component model for this kind of systems.  ...  However, this approach still has some pending issues, like the definition of design methodologies that lead to reusable and composible components and controllers, and the use of formal tools to reason  ...  In our software market there is not only room for systems and components manufacturers, but also for developers of reusable controllers.  ...

A component-based approach for specifying reusable visual languages

Amine El Kouhen, Sebastien Gerard, Cedric Dumoulin, Pierre Boulet
2013 2013 IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human Centric Computing  
In this context, we propose MID, a set of metamodels supporting the specification of modeling editors by means of reusable components and explain how representational metamodeling is carried out with it  ...  require, in most cases, manual programming to build full tool support for the modeling language, especially for users' native methodologies and representational elements and suffer from gaps in terms of reusability  ...  To improve reusability, we propose a component-based approach.  ...

Specifying knowledge-based systems with reusable components

Dieter Fensel, Rix Groenboom
When specifying a reusable PSM it must be proven one time whether the operational specification specifies a terminating computational process that has the specified competence.  ...  These complex requirements on Specifying Knowledge-Based Systems with Reusable Components Dieter Fensel 1 and Rix Groenboom 2 1 University of Karlsruhe, Institut AIFB, D-76128 Karlsruhe, Germany, fensel  ...

It has also been specified precisely that for what the component reuse stands for and for what the component reuse does not stands for. It is required to characterize the components for better reuse.  ...  The reusable software components can be defined in several ways. The reusable software components possess a distinct functionality that does not affect the functionality of other components.  ...  External specifications External specifications specify the external nature of the reusable components.  ...

To this effect, we define four partial ordering relations among reusable components and different measures to quantify functional differences among them.  ...  The selection of appropriate components for satisfying a given requirement is a key problem in software reuse.  ...  Secondly, it is necessary to eliminate the functionality specified by the retrieved component which is not specified by the query É.  ...

Requirements Engineering

Donald Firesmith
2002 Journal of Object Technology  
The first two articles of this column lay the foundation for my future columns on requirements engineering by defining the reusable requirements related process components of the OPEN Process Framework  ...  As illustrated in the following figure, OPF consists of a: • Repository of predefined reusable process components. • Metamodel that organizes and provides a theoretical foundation for these components.  ...  The next article will complete the discussion of the reusable requirements process components and lay a foundation for future articles.  ...

A toolkit for Reuse in Conceptual Modelling [chapter]

Raul Ruggia, Ana Paula Ambrosio
1997 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
These services include: quality validation of reusable components, component selection from the Repository, and new conceptual schema construction by customising and composing reusable ones.  ...  Reusable components consist of an Extended Entity-Relationship schema as well as other information like executable reuse guidelines. Relational Object Oriented Schema Schema J  ...  This model is used to specify the quality properties of the reusable schema components as well as the semantics of the customisation/composition operators.  ...

A (TRUSTAD) Component Nomenclature

Sivamuni Kalaimagal, Rengaramanujam Srinivasan
2008 Journal of Object Technology  
We also propose a seven dimension vector (T, R, U, S, T, A, D) that can be used to specify software components.  ...  The seven dimension vector is then used to provide a set of specifications that distinguish between in-house components, COTS components , reusable in-house and reusable COTS components.  ...  Many research papers use the term components without explicitly specifying what kind of component they are talking about.  ...

A Methodology To Manage Victim Components Using Cbo Measure

N Md Jubair Basha
2012 International Journal of Software Engineering & Applications  
This paper presents several measures of reusability and presents a methodology of reconfiguring the victim components. The CBO measure helps in identifying the component to be reconfigured.  ...  The proposed strategy is simulated using HR portal domain specific component system.  ...  One specifies the name of the component and the count specifies the number of times the component was reused by several systems.  ...
