Takes a UML approach to software development and integrates component-based and product-line engineering methods
Component-based, 'product-line' software engineering methods will transform the way software systems are developed and maintained. However, traditional component technologies only address implementation and deployment, not the entire software lifecycle. This book introduces the breakthrough, UML-based KobrA method, which integrates component and product line methods at all phases of development, dramatically enhancing their value while simplifying the construction of high-quality software using today's component technologies.KEY TOPICS:Colin Atkinson begins by introducing the KobrA method, the problems it seeks to solve, and its key features and characteristics. He reviews the activities involved in modeling a system of logical components using UML; then describes how these logical components can be transformed into code, either through new development or integrating off-the-shelf components, and how this fits into an efficient, high-quality incremental development process. Atkinson next shows how recent advances in product-line engineering can be integrated into KorbA models, allowing organizations to adapt the same components for multiple uses. Finally, he focuses on key supporting activities, including configuration management, maintenance, quality assurance, quality modeling and the challenge of transitioning to KobrA in real-life development environments.MARKET:For all software architects, engineers, project managers, and developers seeking to improve quality and productivity.
