Abstract:

The overall objectives of this project were to develop approaches to program comprehension that would provide significant added benefits in many aspects of software engineering. As one part of that effort, the RESOLVEACTI framework for a software component composition technology was developed. The technology focuses on development of software components that can be reused and a composition discipline that helps in creating programs whose properties can be efficiently reasoned about. As another part of the effort, a device comprehension framework called Functional Representation was applied, and its utility shown for software architecture comprehension, legacy software reengineering and representation of system requirements.
