Interoperability by means of configurable connectors

Kaya, Muhammed Çağrı
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 using existing connectors to increase reuse and customizing them through simple user interfaces. This methodology is applied to the Live-Virtual-Constructive simulation systems domain as a confıgurable gateway application between Data Distribution Service for Real-Time Systems (DDS) and High-Level Architecture (HLA) standards. Finally, interoperability of different parties are investigated for Metrology and the calibration industry, and an Industrial Internet of Things-based architecture is established. Academic and industrial case studies have been conducted for proof of concept. They show the practicality of the proposed approaches.
