Off-the-Shelf Connectors for Interdisciplinary Components

Introduction: Solutions based on software components, especially for heterogeneous constituents such as those pertaining to different disciplines suffer the interoperability burden. Adaptor technologies have been introduced before, as a potential remedy and utilized here through implementing them in component connectors.


Composition Capability of Component-Oriented Development
Kaya, Muhammed Çağrı; Çetinkaya, Anıl; Doğru, Ali Hikmet (2017-10-30)
This research enhances component-oriented development approaches with the capability to represent the dynamic behavior of the final system through a process model. For an executable system, ordering of the message invocations should also be specified besides the definition of a set of components which only presents a static view. Components, however, are usually server kind software units that respond when a request is made. A central application can be expected to trigger some of the methods while some com...
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...
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...
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...
Kutulu: A Domain-specific Language for Feature-driven Product Derivation
Dayibas, Orcun; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S. (2012-07-20)
Software Product Line Engineering (SPLE) defines processes to facilitate the development of a family of products in a pre-defined market more effectively. Its success depends on implementation of these processes utilizing best practices with proper tool support. This paper describes how to enhance domain design and variation management processes of SPLE with a domain-specific language (DSL), namely "Kutulu". It also introduces novel modeling tools and dependency injection-based realization approach that are...
