A formal basis for architectural connection
David Garlan, Robert Allen
Pages: 213-249
DOI: 10.1145/258077.258078
As software systems become more complex, the overall system structure—or software architecture—becomes a central design problem. An important step toward an engineering discipline of software is a formal basis for describing and...

Mobile UNITY: reasoning and specification in mobile computing
Jerome Y. Plun, Peter J. McCann, Gruia-Catalin Roman
Pages: 250-282
DOI: 10.1145/258077.258079
Mobile computing represents a major point of departure from the traditional distributed-computing paradigm. The potentially very large number of independent computing units, a decoupled computing style, frequent disconnections, continuous...

Assessing process-centered software engineering environments
Alfonso Fuggetta, Reidar Conradi, Vincenzo Ambriola
Pages: 283-328
DOI: 10.1145/258077.258080
Process-centered software engineering environments (PSEEs) are the most recent generation of environments supporting software development activities. They exploit an representation of the process (called the process model that...
