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.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
