Towards Context Independent Extra-functional Properties Descriptor for Components

Kamil Ježek, Přemek Brada, Petr Štěpán
2010 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
Our formalism further allows us to use the extra-functional properties for describing the dependency between a component and a deployment environment referred to as deployment contracts.  ...  Our approach uses a system of registries that has the advantage of a consistent interpretation of the extra-functional properties found on any given component regardless of its usage context and that separates  ...  Services of a component usually contain both provided and required properties. The whole component can only provide some extra-functional properties towards other components.  ...

Description, Conversion, and Planning for Semantic Interoperability [chapter]

A. Rosenthal, E. Sciore
1997 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
The issue of semantic interoperability pervades distributed systems whose components are designed independently.  ...  A semantic interoperability service is defined, and its required functional components -argument describers, conversion functions, and a planner -are identified.  ...  Alternatively, code for computing argument descriptors can be embedded entirely within the wrapper, avoiding extra messages.  ...

1999 Methods of Information in Medicine  
ORCA can easily be tailored to the needs of a variety of medical specialists without the need for changes to its data model, functionality, or interface.  ...  AbstractThe introduction of computer-based patient records (CPRs) that fully replace paper records proves especially difficult in specialized care, despite the potential advantages of CPRs for patient  ...  The children of a concept in the knowledge graph constitute its descriptors in general, which means that the descriptors of a concept are context independent.  ...

HERCULE: a framework for enhancing error reporting in component-based systems

K.V. Renaud, R.L. Cooper
1999 Proceedings Third International Enterprise Distributed Object Computing. Conference (Cat. No.99EX366)  
In component-based applications, the constituent parts are developed independently, and consequently traditional methods for implementing global feedback mechanisms will not be feasible.  ...  This paper presents a novel approach to providing error feedback for distributed, component-based applications.  ...  This research was done in the context of Karen's PhD. She is supported by a scholarship from the Association of Commonwealth Universities.  ...
