Enforcing connection-related constraints and enhancements on a component oriented software engineering case tool

Özyurt, Barış
This thesis introduces enhancements over an existing Component Oriented CASE Tool (CoseCase). Constraint checking facility is implemented for the connections provided in the tool: A user programmable set of rules governing the allowed connections among different modeling elements is added as a capability. The previous implementation of the tool did not consider the semantics behind the elements and their interconnection. Also related connection types are tested against cycle formations. Other aspects of the tool have been enhanced such as the dynamic graphical presentation of connection handles and connectors. Deleting a sub-tree from the design diagram is made operational besides the correction of faulty operating routines especially related to attaching new elements to the diagram.


Variable connectors in component oriented development
Çetinkaya, Anıl; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2017)
Variability is incorporated in component oriented software development especially in the connectors besides components, for efficient configuration of software products in this thesis. Components have been regarded as the main building blocks in the development of software, especially in component based approaches. Connectors, however, were also part of the solution but with not much of a responsibility when compared to components. When considered in a holistic approach to yield executable code starting wit...
Visual composition component oriented development
Öztürk, Murat Mutlu; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2005)
This thesis introduces a visual composition approach for JavaBeans components, in compliance with the Component Oriented Software Engineering (COSE) process. The graphical modeling tool, COSECASE, is enhanced with the ability to build a system by integrating domain-specific components. Such integration is implemented by defining connection points and interaction details between components. The event model of the JavaBeans architecture is also added to the capabilities.
Modeling heterogeneous internet of things systems using connectors in component oriented software engineering
Ünal, Selin; Dogru, Ali H.,; Department of Computer Engineering (2019)
In this thesis a solution for modeling heterogeneous IoT applications in component oriented software engineering is provided by using software connectors. IoT is interconnected devices or humans in the means of internet which gains more importance day by day in different areas of the world. This kind of powerful and complex systems have challenges to overcome in nature. Each IoT system component has specific set of rules for communicating with the other components. In order to be able to communicate, compon...
Modeling variability in component oriented software engineering
Kaya, Muhammed Çağrı; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2015)
A key factor for achieving flexible component oriented applications is to make the components possbile to change and adapt instead of creating and using them from scratch. In order to fulfil various needs in time with little effort, a new metamodel is proposed that establishes a variability specification and system configuration environment for Component Oriented Software Engineering Modeling Language (COSEML). Variability is integrated to COSEML that can be viewed as an Architectural Description Language e...
Computational platform for predicting lifetime system reliability profiles for different structure types in a network
Akgül, Ferhat (2004-01-01)
This paper presents a computational platform for predicting the lifetime system reliability profiles for different structure types located in an existing network. The computational platform has the capability to incorporate time-variant live load and resistance models. Following a review of the theoretical basis, the overall architecture of the computational platform is described. Finally, numerical examples of three existing bridges (i.e., a steel, a prestressed concrete, and a hybrid steel-concrete bridge...
