Systematic component-oriented development with axiomatic design

Toğay, Cengiz
In this research, component oriented development is supported with design guidance by extending the Axiomatic Design Theory for component orientation, and utilizing domain engineering and ontology mechanisms. Guidance is offered in the form of suggesting missing components and discovering incompatibilities among the candidate elements of software development, corresponding to different phases such as requirement analysis, design, and implementation. A mature domain concept is developed suggesting the availability of reference models for customer needs, software system requirements, software design, and also a rich set of implemented components. As the system is being defined starting with the customer needs and progressing towards components, at every step the developer is presented what is available in the domain and what becomes unavailable. This guidance is based on the selections made so far, utilizing ontology based constraint checking. Feature Models are incorporated for modeling customer needs. Case studies are presented for demonstration purposes.


Analysis Pattern of Sanliurfa Harran Plain in UML and its Implementation in Geodatabase
Çubuk, Ulaş; Usul, Nurünnisa; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2004)
An emerging trend in GIS is the adoption of object oriented concepts for both logical and physical design phases. Extensive research has been conducted on logical design of GIS and several conceptual models have been proposed. Classical data models like the relational data model have proven to be insufficient for the conceptual modeling of spatial data. Therefore among other object oriented modeling tools, a new modeling language, Unified Modeling Language (UML) has also become a popular modeling tool in th...
Data integration over horizontally partitioned databases in service-oriented data grids

Information integration over distributed and heterogeneous resources has been challenging in many terms: coping with various kinds of heterogeneity including data model, platform, access interfaces; coping with various forms of data distribution and maintenance policies, scalability, performance, security and trust, reliability and resilience, legal issues etc. It is obvious that each of these dimensions deserves a separate thread of research efforts. One particular challenge among the ones listed above tha...
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.
Development of a library for automated verification of UML models
Çelik, Makbule Filiz; Koçyiğit, Altan; Department of Information Systems (2006)
Software designs are mostly modeled as Unified Modeling Language (UML) diagrams when object oriented software development is concerned. Some popular topics in the industry such as Model Driven Development, generating test cases automatically in the early phases of software development, automated generation of code from design model etc. use the benefits of UML designs. All of these topics have something in common which is the need for accuracy against the meta-model not to face problems in the latter phases...
An Approach for introducing a set of domain specific components
Yiğit, İbrahim Onuralp; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2015)
In this thesis, a preliminary methodology is proposed for the determination of a set of components to populate the domain model of a Software Product Line infrastructure. Software Product Line based approaches focus on the reusability of assets for a family of software products. For effective reuse, the definition of reusable assets in this thesis considers variability in a domain. The approach is based on variability specifications that is rooted in Feature Models and is reflected to a component modeling n...
