Model-Based Adaptation of Behavioral Mismatching Components
The problem of adapting heterogeneous software components that present mismatching interaction behaviour is one of the crucial problems in Component-Based Software Engineering (CBSE). To solve this problem, component behavior ontology (CBO) which includes component entities, component behaviors and component behavior properties is constructed in the paper. Based on CBO, we propse a component interaction adaptation model (CIAM). In the model, we divide different component groups, detect interaction behaviour deadlock by component behavior properties and set up adapter specification via behavior rules. Finally, we obtain an autocephalous adapter for each component group to remove mismatching interaction behaviour.
