Representing design patterns as super components in component oriented software engineering

Avkaroğulları, Okan
It is widely believed and empirically shown that component reuse improves both the quality and productivity of software development. This brings the necessity of a graphical editor to model the projects by using components. A graphical editor was implemented for the development of Component Oriented software development. The editor facilitates modeling efforts through application of the graphical modeling language COSEML. Both design patterns and software components have come to play important roles in software development. The correlation between software components and design patterns is apparent. In the design phase of the projects design patterns are used widely both in component and object oriented projects. Design patterns can be used as super components in component-based development . Software reuse, software components, design patterns, use of design patterns in component-based development, and component architectures are studied in details to address the need for the approach. COSE modeling activity starts with the decomposition of the target system into building blocks in a top-down order. Next, interfaces between these blocks are defined. If required design patterns can be added to model as super components.


A process modeling based method for identification and implementation of software development tool integration-tuples
Ertürkmen, K. Alpay; Demirörs, Onur; Department of Information Systems (2010)
Software development is highly dependent on the use of tools. These tools support and automate activities performed in different sub-domains of software development. However, they don‘t adequately provide or support integration facilities, and act as ―islands of automation‖. This restricts their benefits to only specific parts of the process. To reap the benefits of integration, this thesis provides a process modeling based method named PLETIN to identify and implement software development tool integration-...
Representing component variability in configuration management
Bayraktar, Gamze; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S.; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2012)
Reusability of assets within a family of products is the major goal of Software Product Line Engineering (SPLE), therefore managing variability is an important task in SPLs. Configuration management in the context of software product line engineering is more complicated than that in single systems engineering due to ”variability in space” in addition to ”variability in time” of core assets. In this study, a method for documenting variability in executable configuration items, namely components, is proposed ...
Investigation of the effects of structural characteristics of object-oriented software on fault-proneness
Gölcük, Halit; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
This study investigates the effects of structural characteristics of object-oriented software, which are observable at the model level of the software developed by means of Unified Modeling Language (UML), on software quality, assessing quality in terms of fault-proneness. In the scope of this thesis study, real-time embedded software components developed by Aselsan, a leading defense industry company in Turkey, were analyzed. The correlation between software metrics measured from the UML models of the soft...
Exploration of an Error Prevention Model for COSMIC Functional Size Measurement Method
Salmanoğlu, Murat; Demirörs, Onur (2012-10-19)
The reliability of Functional size is crucial for effort and cost estimation in software development projects. However, estimation results may differ because of the errors made in the measurement process. This research proposes an error prevention model for COSMIC Functional Size Measurement method to increase the reliability of the measurements. The model has two main suggestions; first, to use the types of the functional processes during the measurement to prevent errors, and the second, to use a cardinal...
Modeling patterns and cultures of embedded software development projects
Akdur, Deniz; Demirörs, Onur; Department of Information Systems (2018)
Due to their multiple constraints across different dimensions of performance and quality, the analysis, design, implementation and testing of software-intensive embedded systems are not trivial, which makes their development more challenging. To cope with these growing complexities, modeling is a widely used approach in this industry. However, the modeling approaches in embedded software vary since the characteristics of diagram development and usage (e.g., purpose, modeling rigor, medium type used, modelin...
