Object-oriented reengineering patterns by Serge Demeyer( )
20 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The documentation is missing or obsolete, and the original developers have departed. Your team has limited understanding of the system, and unit tests are missing for many, if not all, of the components. When you fix a bug in one place, another bug pops up somewhere else in the system. Long rebuild times make any change difficult. All of these are signs of software that is close to the breaking point. Many systems can be upgraded or simply thrown away if they no longer serve their purpose. Legacy software, however, is crucial for operations and needs to be continually available and upgraded. How can you reduce the complexity of a legacy system sufficiently so that it can continue to be used and adapted at acceptable cost? Based on the authors' industrial experiences, this book is a guide on how to reverse engineer legacy systems to understand their problems, and then reengineer those systems to meet new demands. Patterns are used to clarify and explain the process of understanding large code bases, hence transforming them to meet new requirements. The key insight is that the right design and organization of your system is not something that can be evident from the initial requirements alone, but rather as a consequence of understanding how these requirements evolve. * Describes how to reverse engineer a monolithic system to understand how it really works and how to identify potential problems. * Includes reengineering patterns that tackle well-known reengineering techniques often encountered in object-oriented programming, such as introducing polymorphism, factoring out common behavior, detecting duplicated code, and understanding design. * Shows how to build a culture of continuous reengineering for achieving flexible and maintainable object-oriented systems

Object-based distributed programming : ECOOP '93 workshop, Kaiserslautern, Germany, July 26-27, 1993 : proceedings by Rachid Guerraoui( Book )
13 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Interest has grown rapidly over the past dozen years in the application of object-oriented programming and methods to the development of distributed, open systems. This volume presents the proceedings of a workshop intended to assess the current state of research in this field and to facilitate interaction between groups working on very different aspects of object-oriented distributed systems. The workshop was held as part of the 1993 European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming (ECOOP '93). Over fifty people submitted position papers and participated in the workshop, and almost half presented papers. The presented papers were carefully reviewed and revised after the workshop, and 14 papers were selected for this volume."--PUBLISHER'S WEBSITE
Object-based models and languages for concurrent systems : ECOOP '94 Workshop on Models and Languages for Coordination of Parallelism and Distribution, Bologna, Italy, July 5, 1994 : proceedings by Paolo Ciancarini( Book )
14 editions published in 1995 in 3 languages and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume presents carefully refereed versions of the best papers presented at the Workshop on Models and Languages for Coordination of Parallelism and Distribution, held during ECOOP '94 in Bologna, Italy in July 1994. Recently a new class of models and languages for distributed and parallel programming has evolved; all these models share a few basic concepts: simple features for data description and a small number of mechanisms for coordinating the work of agents in a distributed setting. This volume demonstrates that integrating such features with those known from concurrent object-oriented programming is very promising with regard to language support for distribution and software composition
Object-based concurrent computing : ECOOP '91 workshop, Geneva, Switzerland, July 15-16, 1991 : proceedings by M Tokoro( Book )
10 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The ECOOP '91 Workshop on Object-Based Concurrent Computing was organized toprovide a forum on concurrent, distributed and open-ended computing. The emphasis was on conceptual, theoretical and formal aspects, as well as practical aspects and sound experience, since such a viewpoint was deemed indispensible to investigate and establish a basis for future development. This volume contains 12 papers selected from 25 presented at the workshop, together with a paper by J.A. Goguen, who was an invited speaker at the workshop. The papers are classified into four categories: Formal methods (1): three papers are concerned with the formal semantics of concurrent objects based on process calculi. Formal methods (2): four papers are concerned with various formal approaches to the semantics of concurrent programs. Concurrent programming: three papers. Models: three papers areconcerned with models for concurrent systems."--PUBLISHER'S WEBSITE

Transactions on Petri Nets and Other Models of Concurrency by D Hutchison( )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Annotation These Transactions publish archival papers in the broad area of Petri nets and other models of concurrency, ranging from theoretical work to tool support and industrial applications. ToPNoC issues are published as LNCS volumes, and hence are widely distributed and indexed. This Journal has its own Editorial Board which selects papers based on a rigorous two stage refereeing process. ToPNoC contains: Revised versions of a selection of the best papers from workshops and tutorials at the annual Petri net conferences; special sections/issues within particular subareas (similar to those published in the Advances in Petri Nets series); other papers invited for publication in ToPNoC; papers submitted directly to ToPNoC by their authors.This is the first volume of ToPNoC. It contains revised and extended versions of a selection of the best papers from the workshops held at the 28th International Conference on Applications and Theory of Petri Nets and Other Models of Concurrency, which took place in Siedlce, Poland, June 25-29, 2007. The material has been selected and evaluated by the two Workshop and Tutorial Chairs, Wil van der Aalst and Jonathan Billington, in close cooperation with the chairs of the individual workshops. The 13 papers in this volume cover a wide range of concurrency-related topics, including: teaching concurrency; process languages; process mining; software engineering; state space visualization techniques; timed Petri nets; unfolding techniques and hardware systems. Thus, this volume gives a good overview of the state of the art in concurrency research
