We describe the Design Pattern Modelling Language, a notation supporting the specification of design pattern solutions and their instantiation into UML design models. DPML provides a set of modelling constructs allowing design pattern solutions to be modelled and reused. A corresponding notation links design pattern solution elements to UML model elements,(More)

Current approaches to component-based systems engineering tend to focus on low-level software component interface design and implementation. This often leads to the development of components whose services are hard to understand and combine, make too many assumptions about other components they can be composed with and component documentation that is too(More)
Developers need tool support to help manage the wide range of inconsistencies that occur during software development. Such tools need to provide developers with ways to define, detect, record, present, interact with, monitor and resolve complex inconsistencies between different views of software artefacts, different developers and different phases of(More)
The objective of this paper is to present the current evidence relative to the effectiveness of pair programming (PP) as a pedagogical tool in higher education CS/SE courses. We performed a systematic literature review (SLR) of empirical studies that investigated factors affecting the effectiveness of PP for CS/SE students and studies that measured the(More)
We describe a Unified Modelling Language (UML) diagramming tool that uses an E-whiteboard, pen-based sketching interface to support collaborative design. Our tool allows designers to sketch UML visual modelling language constructs, mixing different UML diagram components, free-hand annotations and hand-written text. A key novelty of our approach is the(More)
A new software architecture for supporting inter-object consistency management is described. Objects with interdependent data values are kept consistent by propagating descriptions of object state changes along inter-object relationships. Response to and storage of these change descriptions supports the implementation of consistency management techniques in(More)
Most visual diagramming tools provide point-and-click construction of computer-drawn diagram elements using a conventional desktop computer and mouse. SUMLOW is a Unified Modelling Language (UML) diagramming tool that uses an E-whiteboard and sketching-based user interface to support collaborative software design. SUMLOW allows designers to sketch UML(More)
Developing software engineering tools is a difficult task, and the environments in which these tools are deployed continually evolve as software developers’ processes, tools and tool sets evolve. To more effectively develop such evolvable environments, we have been using component-based approaches to build and integrate a range of software development(More)
