Uncovering Architectural Mismatch In Component Behavior
Department of Computer Science

When constructing software systems from existing components, the engineer is faced with the problem of potential conflicts in the interactions among the components. Of particular difficulty is guaranteeing compatibility in the dynamic interaction behavior. Using an architectural description of the system and its intended components, the engineer can reason about the interactions early and at a high level of abstraction.

In this talk we give a case study of the Compressing Proxy system, presenting architectural specifications and analyses of two versions of the system. We use the Chemical Abstract Machine as an example of an architectural description formalism that can help uncover architectural mismatches in the behavior of components.

Refreshments will be served immediately before the talk at 3:30pm.

The Department holds colloquia throughout the Fall and Spring semesters. These colloquia, open to the public, are typically held on Thursday afternoons, but sometimes occur at other times as well. If you would like to receive email notification of upcoming colloquia, subscribe to our Colloquia Mailing List. If you would like to schedule a colloquium, see Colloquium Scheduling.

Sign language interpreters are available upon request. Please contact Stephanie Morris at least five days prior to the colloquium.
