A Process-based Methodology for Designing Event-based Mobile Composite Applications
Fjellheim, Tore, Milliner, Stephen W., Dumas, Marlon, & Vayssiere, Julien (2007) A Process-based Methodology for Designing Event-based Mobile Composite Applications. Data and Knowledge Engineering, 61(1), pp. 6-22.
Mobile application developers should be able to specify how applications can adapt to changing conditions, and to later reconfigure the application to suit new circumstances. Event-based communication have been advocated to facilitate such dynamic changes. Event-based models, however, are fragmented, which makes it difficult to understand the dependencies between components. A process-oriented methodology overcomes this issue, by specifying dependencies according to a process model. This paper describes a methodology that combines the comprehensibility and manageability of control from process-oriented methodologies, with the flexibility of event-based communication. This enables fine-grained adaptation of process-oriented applications.
