ABSTRACT

Software Reuse Version 1 - SE 598 51
Syllabus

TOPIC: Software Reuse

COURSE ABSTRACT: The purpose of this course is to explore contemporary
topics in software reuse, including the impact of Object-Oriented
Design and Programming with Ada83, Ada95,  C++, and Domain Engineering
on the software development process.  The course will  concentrate on
the practical aspects of applying architecture-centric, domain-specific,
library- based reuse methodologies integrated with the software
development process to create Ada83,  Ada95, and C++ systems in an
efficient, cost-effective manner.  Libraries of object-based  reusable
software components will be used to design and implement solutions to
problems.   The course will illustrate how object-oriented and domain
engineering techniques coupled with  domain-specific libraries and
Ada83, Ada95, and C++ can be used to effectively develop  significant
software systems in a short period of time, frequently realizing reuse
on the order of  70% or more.  Topics (with estimated percentage of the
class time):

  * A review of Software Engineering and the Ada83, Ada95, and C++
programming  languages (10%),
  * Object-Based and Object-Oriented Analysis and Design with Ada83,
Ada95, and C++  (20%),
  * Designing for reuse (30%),
  * Domain Engineering (30%),
  * Integrating reuse processes into the development process (5%), and
  * Non-Technical issues (5%).

The course is half lecture and half laboratory.  DEC Ada and DEC C++
will be used on a DEC  Alpha computer system for the laboratory.

INTENDED AUDIENCE: System architects, designers, programmers, graduate
students.

PRE-REQUISITE: Experience in Ada and C or approval of the instructor or
faculty advisor.

Release to the PAL
==================
The following tools were used to prepare the student notes and slides:
  Microsoft Word for Windows 6.0
  Microsoft Powerpoint 4.0

Postscript files of the student notes and slides as well many of the lab
manuals are included.

Most of the reading material is available in the PAL and not included in
this distribution.  You can find the material in the PAL by using the
PAL Catalog or Card Catalog.  The reading material not in the PAL is
mainly in the form of magazine articles.  The sources of these articles
are given in the Lesson Plan and cover pages for the reading material.

The code used in the lab includes CS Parts and the Aflex/Ayacc tool
pair.  These can be found in the PAL.
