BACKGROUND: A software engineering systematic map is a defined method to build a classification scheme and structure a software engineering field of interest. The analysis of results focuses on frequencies of publications for categories within the scheme. Thereby, the coverage of the research field can be determined. Different facets of the scheme can also(More)
To sustain the qualities of a software system during evolution, and to adapt the quality attributes as the requirements evolve, it is necessary to have a clear software architecture that is understood by all developers and to which all changes to the system adheres. This software architecture can be created beforehand, but must also be updated as the domain(More)
raditional framework-based application development assumes applications are based on single frameworks extended with application-specific code. More recently, it’s become clear that application development is often based on multiple frameworks that have to be integrated with one another, as well as with class libraries and with existing legacy components,(More)
The claimed advantages of object-orien ted frameworks are, among others, increased reusability and reduced time to market for applications. Although several examples have shown these advantages to exist, there are problems and hindrances associated with frameworks that may not appear before their usage in real projects. In this paper a num ber of problems(More)
Object-oriented application frameworks present one of the most successful approaches to developing reusable assets in industry, but developing frameworks is both difficult and expensive. Framework generally evolve through a number of iterations due to the incorporation of new requirements and better domain understanding. Since changes to frameworks have a(More)
Recently an approach for identifying potential modules for restructuring in large software systems using product release history was presented[4]. In this study we have adapted the original approach to better suit object-oriented frameworks and applied it to an industrial black-box framework product in the telecommunication domain. Our study shows that(More)
Reuse of software has been one of the main goals of software engineering for decades. Reusing software is not simple and most efforts resulted in small reusable, black-box components. With the emergence of the object-oriented paradigm, the enabling technology for reuse of larger components became available and resulted in the definition of object-oriented(More)
