Abstract: Software products such as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, game engines, and simulation software, are often built around a software kernel that encapsulates and provides core functionality. Specific software products are then developed by deploying and adapting this kernel, and can be further configured and customised. This project aims to develop methods and technologies for the design and implementation of evolvable software products based on software kernels. The project investigates software engineering techniques to achieve reliable and evolvable software products, and explores how software is created and maintained on a long term basis.

To pursue such an objective, the project aims at empirically evaluating reverse engineering and migration techniques and tools that can potentially fulfill industry needs. The empirical evaluation will be conducted in three different stages: a first stages aiming at surveying the state of the art and of the practice; a second stage aiming at assessing the different techniques in a controlled environment; and a third stage, in which techniques will be further experimented in industry with some case studies.

METAMORPHOS: Methods and tools for migrating software systems towards web and service oriented architectures

Funding: Ministero dell'Universita della Ricerca, Programmi di ricerca di Rilevante Interesse Nazionale (PRIN), Grant number 2006098097
Duration: February 2007 - February 2009
Budget: 271430 euros
Partners: Prof. A. De Lucia, University of Salerno; University of Bari; University of Sannio; University of Turin
The objective of this project is to facilitate the selection and the adoption of reverse engineering and migration techniques and tools in industry. To pursue such an objective, the project aims at empirically evaluating reverse engineering and migration techniques and tools that can potentially fulfill industry needs. The empirical evaluation will be conducted in three different stages: a first stages aiming at surveying the state of the art and of the practice; a second stage aiming at assessing the different techniques in a controlled environment; and a third stage, in which techniques will be further experimented in industry with some case studies.
