achieve the ideals put forward for OO
design, but they do it on a much larger
scale. Ideals such as the reuse
of services, increased scalability, flexibility across applications, reduced maintainence, and enterprise integration.
component design requirements
We have helped many companies move from developing inflexible, monolithic applications; to adaptable component based ones. The CBD (Component Based Development) techniques we promote, are well proven within industry. Components have come of age, both in terms of the technology to support them and the agile methods to develop them. The benefits mentioned above are obtainable without overheads. In our view, it is a faster and less risky way to design software.
Our component modelling
built on, and have added to, UML. TriReme
technical director, Dr Alan Wills, is
an industry expert on component design,
and co-author of the Catalysis approach
to CBD (Component Based Development).
Re-engineering is as much about how to
avoid re-engineering - how can you leverage
what you already have. Ideally you
want to leave replacing parts of your
system, as long as possible. We
can help you:
factor out useful parts
- retrieve common business entities
using the open and industry standard
OCL (Object Constraint Language)
Do you need to precisely specify your
components? Perhaps you outsource
the development - we have a number of
clients whose specifications are met by
developers in other countries, such as
India. Our consultants have helped
shape the OCL standard - they are leading
experts in the world today. Note, OCL is often only necessary for high integrity design.
