A VARIABILITY-GUIDED METHODOLOGY FOR MICROSERVICE-BASED DEVELOPMENT

2022-12-20
Kuruoğlu Dolu, Betül
This thesis presents a microservice-based development approach, MSDeveloper (Microservices Developer), employing variability management for product configuration through a low-code development environment. The purpose of this approach is to offer a general-purpose environment for the easier development of families of products for different domains: a domain-oriented development environment is suggested, where domain developers and product developers can utilize the environment as a software ecosystem. Thus, genericity is offered through supporting different domains. A domain is populated with feature and process models and microservices in a layered architecture. Feature models drive the product configuration, which affects the process model and the microservice layer. An experimental study was conducted to validate the applicability of the approach and the usability of the development environment. Students from different courses were assigned system modeling projects where they utilized helper tools supporting the provided methodology. Furthermore, professional software developers were consulted about this recommended domain-oriented development environment. Feedback from student projects and remarks of professionals are analyzed and discussed.

Interoperability by means of configurable connectors
Kaya, Muhammed Çağrı; Doğru, Ali H.; Department of Computer Engineering (2020)
A configurable connector-based software development methodology for componentbased approaches is presented. This method involves the incorporation of variability modeling capabilities into component modeling environments. The focus of this research is on supporting technologies for the combination of parts that are not directly compatible. In the scope of this research, firstly, proposals for the configurable connector paradigm are put forth, that are, achieving interoperability among system components by u...
Using feature models for reusability in agile methods
Jedyk, Marcin; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2011)
The approach proposed in this thesis contributes to implementing source code reuse and re-engineering techniques for agile software development. This work includes an introduction to feature models and some of the Feature Oriented Software Development (FOSD) practices to achieve a lightweight way of retrieving source code. A Feature model created during the course of following FOSD practices serves as an additional layer of documentation which represents the problem space for the developed application. This...
An Agile business process software development methodology
Çulha, Davut; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2014)
An agile business process software development methodology is proposed, developed and tested in this research. To speed up the business process software development practices in the organization and to address the requirements more efficiently, an agile approach was adapted. Two new processes were developed using the new methodology. The improvement was assessed by utilizing nine older developments: A formula was developed in this research that estimates the development efforts for old business process soft...
Managing business lifecycle using ebIOP
Tambag, Y; Coşar, Ahmet (Wiley, 2003-11-10)
In this paper, we describe how ebIOP (an ebXML compliant B2B interoperability platform) manages the business lifecycle by providing an example scenario. ebIOP provides a common storage for ebIOP components (ebXML applications). ebIOP defines an ebIOP component to be a software implementation of one or more ebXML specifications which is a solution of an e-commerce pattern (description of an e-commerce problem). ebIOP contains a server that listens to a port over the TCP/IP protocol for client requests and pr...
