OBJECTIVE Active anxiety disorders have lasting detrimental effects on pregnant mothers and their offspring but it is unknown if historical, non-active, maternal anxiety disorders have similar effects. Anxiety-related conditions, such as reduced autonomic cardiac control, indicated by reduced heart rate variability (HRV) could persist despite disorder(More)
In a Business Process Execution Language (BPEL) process definition the sequence of exchanged messages typically originates from the sequence of business process activities and from the need of coordination of those activities across the participants of the process. As such business concerns (e.g. the sequence of business process steps) are often mixed with(More)
Composing services into service-based systems requires the design of coordination logic, which describes all service interactions realising the composition. Coordination can be defined as the management of dependencies; in a services context we can discriminate between 'control flow' that manages sequence dependencies and 'data flow' for managing data(More)
This paper describes a didactical Computer Aided Software Engineering (CASE)-tool that was developed for use within the context of a course in object-oriented domain modelling. In particular, the tool was designed to address several inconveniences that challenge the realisation of the course objectives: the number of students enrolled does not allow for(More)
BACKGROUND Migration is an important aspect of cellular behaviour and is therefore widely studied in cell biology. Numerous components are known to participate in this process in a highly dynamic manner. In order to obtain a better insight in cell migration, mutants or drugs are used and their motive phenotype is then linked with the disturbing factors. One(More)
This paper presents experiences with the use of an MDA approach to generate prototype applications from a conceptual domain model in the context of teaching object-oriented domain modelling. Each conceptual model used to generate the prototype consists of a combination of three views (a class diagram, a proprietary object-event table and a group of finite(More)
This article discusses the handling of transactional business services, which are service compositions that orchestrate and coordinate underlying services to process a high-level business activity. The main contribution made in this article is the presentation of the pattern TBS handler, which describes how one can implement a transactional business service(More)
Altered stress responsiveness is a risk factor for mental and physical illness. In non-pregnant populations, it is well-known that anxiety can alter the physiological regulation of stress reactivity. Characterization of corresponding risks for pregnant women and their offspring requires greater understanding of how stress reactivity and recovery are(More)
