Automated Instantiation of Software Frameworks for Control System


V. Cechticky

Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zürich

This thesis contributes to the problem of software framework design, implementation and instantiation in several respects. First, it provides a design and implementation of a software framework covering the control system domain. Second, it evaluates Java object-oriented programming language for purposes of real-time programming. A real-time subset of Java was used for the framework implementation. Third, it proposes a concept of automated framework instantiation process, which can provide the user fully automated code generation. Fourth, it proposes a technique that improves traditional feature modelling approaches and provides instantiation facilities. Finally, it demonstrates the usage of the new feature-based modelling and instantiation approach and automated instantiation process on concrete examples. Note that the distinctive characteristic of the new instantiation approaches is their simplicity and reliance only on mainstream technologies and tools, which might imply in acceptance of the instantiation concepts among software framework designers and users.
