DECOUPLING CONFIGURATION AND DEPLOYMENT PROCEDURES BY ASPECT-ORIENTED POLICIES

Kurt Englmeier, Ricki Koinig

Abstract

Model-driven development (MDD) has the potential to increase the level of cooperation in software design and adaptation between stakeholders from IT and business domains. Clear and understandable models can raise transparency of business-relevant key characteristics of software. Our approach addresses a domain-specific configuration language (DSCL) for the dynamic composition and adaptation of applications through configuration information. We concentrate on model representations that reflect individually tailored compositions of generic application modules and their adaptations to individual business needs. Our approach fosters the collaboration in defining application models on two different levels of abstraction. High-level model concepts focus on the definition of process aspects across modules. Low-level concepts cover the complementary role of definition and adaptation of low-level processes that are abstracted away in the high-level concepts.
