Integrating SPL and MDD to Improve the Development of Student Information Systems

A. Cunha, S. Fernandes, A. Magalhães

Abstract

Software development has become increasingly complex in recent years, with the growing multiplicity of development platforms, the integration between components in heterogeneous environments and platforms, and frequent changes in requirements. Academic systems usually integrate various subsystems, such as student enrolment and class planning which can change almost every semester. To address these issues, different development approaches can be used, for example, Model-Driven Development (MDD) and Software Product Lines (SPL). This paper presents an approach that integrates MDD with SPL for the development of evaluation criteria in a family of educational systems. The solution comprises a modeling language, called DSCHOLAR, for creating the models; and a transformation for C# code generation. This article details the transformation responsible for generating the code of evaluation criteria components for the student evaluations according to different universities scenarios. The transformation was validated using proofs of concepts in which evaluation criteria from three public and private universities were modeled using DSCHOLAR and subsequently converted into C# code.
