Roberto Bellinzona, Mariagrazia Fugini, Vicki de Mey, "Reuse of Specifications and Designs in a Development Information System", in Proc. Proceedings IFIP WG 8.1 Working Conference on Information System Development Process (Como, Italy, September, 1993), pp. 79-96

Abstract

This paper describes the approach to application specification and design via reuse at the basis of the Development Information System of the ITHACA environment. Requirements and detailed design of a specific application are incrementally composed by aggregating available reusable components stored in the Software Information Base repository. The paper reviews the Development Information System, then focuses on two tools of the system: RECAST (Requirements Composition And Specification Tool) and Visual ADL, which help the developer in selecting reusable artifacts from the Software Base and in composing and tailoring them according to the specific needs of the application. The paper illustrates the composition approach and describes how reuse is supported via meta classes incorporating suggestions for component reuse and tailoring, and for detailed design.
