"Since its original introduction in 1997, the Unified Modeling Language has revolutionized software development. Every integrated software development environment in the world--open-source, standards-based, and proprietary--now supports UML and, more importantly, the model-driven approach to software development. This makes learning the newest UML standard, UML 2.0, critical for all software developers--and there isn't a better choice than this clear, step-by-step guide to learning the language." --Richard Mark Soley, Chairman and CEO, OMG If you're like most software developers, you're building systems that are increasingly complex. Whether you're creating a desktop application or an enterprise system, complexity is the big hairy monster you must manage. The Unified Modeling Language (UML) helps you manage this complexity. Whether you're looking to use UML as a blueprint language, a sketch tool, or as a programming language, this book will give you the need-to-know information on how to apply UML to your project. While there are plenty of books available that describe UML, Learning UML 2.0 will show you how to use it. Topics covered include: Capturing your system's requirements in your model to help you ensure that your designs meet your users' needs Modeling the parts of your system and their relationships Modeling how the parts of your system work together to meet your system's requirements Modeling how your system moves into the real world, capturing how your system will be deployed Engaging and accessible, this book shows you how to use UML to craft and communicate your project's design. Russ Miles and Kim Hamilton have written a pragmatic introduction to UML based on hard-earned practice, not theory. Regardless of the software process or methodology you use, this book is the one source you need to get up and running with UML 2.0. Russ Miles is a software engineer for General Dynamics UK, where he works with Java and Distributed Systems, although his passion at the moment is Aspect Orientation and, in particular, AspectJ.

To capture the image focused by the lens, digital photography uses an array of electronic photo-detectors, as opposed to an exposure on photographic film. The captured image is then digitized and could be stored as computer file for digital processing, viewing, digital publishing or printing. Usually made in CMOS technology, electronic photo-detectors are commonly used in cell phone cameras, web cameras and some other devices. Throughout this work, the author presents the linear simulation flow for CMOS Image Sensor Modelling he developed at IMEC research center. Int this purpose, he used MATLAB has computing tool and programming language. After describing the electromagnetic simulation of light propagation inside the pixel structure, the framework for the simulation of photo-generated electrons collection by photo-diodes, and subsequent Digital Signal Processing, a comparison is made between simulation results and ideal image sensors optical measurements. The accuracy and predictability of this methodology are demonstrated on various parameters which affect resulted pixels.

UN/CEFACT's Modeling Methodology (UMM) 1.0
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

UN/CEFACT's Modeling Methodology (UMM) is a UML-based approach for capturing the collaborative space between enterprises. It provides a language and a methodology for accomplishing B2B integration projects. UMM guides a business analyst from requirements elicitation to the design phase of a B2B system. The methodology is not bound to a certain implementation technology - hence a UMM business collaboration model may be deployed on different platforms such as Web Services, ebXML etc. This book covers UMM 1.0, the most recent specification adopted by the United Nations Centre for Trade Facilitation and Electronic Business (UN/CEFACT) known for its work in the field of EDIFACT and ebXML. Together with the UMM 1.0 specification the UMM Add-In has been developed - a plug-in for the UML modeling tool Enterprise Architect. The application of UMM together with the UMM Add-In is outlined in the different book chapters. In detail the book covers the worksheet editor, a user guide for UMM, the UMM validator, the mapping of business information to document formats, and the derivation of process specifications from UMM models.

The Semantic Web is an evolving extension of the World Wide Web in which web content can be expressed not only in natural language, but also in a format that can be read and used by software agents, thus permitting them to find, share and integrate information more easily. To achieve the goals of the Semantic Web that is considered as the new generation of World Wide Web, there is a need for its implementation in new projects and in new areas. One of the promising areas is cultural heritage preservation. Among its many applications, the Web can serve not only as a tool for the preservation of cultural heritage, but also a tool for the display of 'cultural heritage items' and a tool for the design of new learning environments. The advantages of the Semantic Web were used in the current research for designing an interactive system named Virtual Expeditions, for the creation and explorations of cultural heritage items. The main objective of this study was to develop a system design, based on the Virtual Expeditions' methodology, and assess its usability and impact on users' dispositions towards open-mindedness.

The purpose of this research was to investigate the utilization and influence of HIT on the clinical decision making of Kentucky nurse practitioners and nurse midwives (Kentucky APRNs). A descriptive cross-sectional design using survey methodology and convenience sampling was employed. Participants were asked to complete an author modified, web-based survey tool that was based on current research. The 40-question tool was designed to explore providers attitudes and perceptions of technology, determine their knowledge and utilization of various electronic and traditional print medical resources, and assess the penetration of and daily usage of HIT in practice. Findings suggested that APRNs in Kentucky are beginning to explore the benefits of HIT, however, additional research will be required to identify the true penetration and utilization of technology in Kentucky. Although additional research is needed, HIT appears to be having an overall impact on the clinical practice of Kentucky APRNs.

The web is a war zone! We cannot escape from it, we are not even soldiers and no one can assure our safety. Surprisingly, almost nobody seems to care: the only thing that matters is to have a presence in the web to communicate with partners and do business. Security issues have cascading effects within enterprises, with dramatic consequences to the dependability of the services they should provide, and it may irreversibly affect the company competitiveness, brand, partners and clients. To deal with this problem, this book is directed towards the evaluation of web application security mechanisms. It presents a field study to analyze and classify a large number of the most important web application vulnerabilities that are SQL Injection and XSS. This field study allowed the proposal of a methodology to inject realistic vulnerabilities in web applications. And this ability turns out to be a critical part of an attack injector for web applications that is also proposed. This tool can be used to evaluate security mechanisms, pointing out their weaknesses and ways of improvement. In the book, one of such security mechanism is also proposed: an IDS for (web application) databases.

Portability of Process-Aware and Service-Orient...

Modern software systems are becoming increasingly integrated and are required to operate over organizational boundaries through networks. The development of such distributed software systems has been shaped by the orthogonal trends of service-orientation and process-awareness. These trends put an emphasis on technological neutrality, loose coupling, independence from the execution platform, and location transparency. Execution platforms supporting these trends provide context and cross-cutting functionality to applications and are referred to as engines.Applications and engines interface via language standards. The engine implements a standard. If an application is implemented in conformance to this standard, it can be executed on the engine. A primary motivation for the usage of standards is the portability of applications. Portability, the ability to move software among different execution platforms without the necessity for full or partial reengineering, protects from vendor lock-in and enables application migration to newer engines. The arrival of cloud computing has made it easy to provision new and scalable execution platforms. To enable easy platform changes, existing international standards for implementing service-oriented and process-aware software name the portability of standardized artifacts as an important goal. Moreover, they provide platform-independent serialization formats that enable the portable implementation of applications. Nevertheless, practice shows that service-oriented and process-aware applications today are limited with respect to their portability. The reason for this is that engines rarely implement a complete standard, but leave out parts or differ in the interpretation of the standard. As a consequence, even applications that claim to be portable by conforming to a standard might not be so.This thesis contributes to the development of portable service-oriented and process-aware software in two ways: Firstly, it provides evidence for the existence of portability issues and the insufficiency of standards for guaranteeing software portability. Secondly, it derives and validates a novel measurement framework for quantifying portability. We present a methodology for benchmarking the conformance of engines to a language standard and implement it in a fully automated benchmarking tool. Several test suites of conformance tests for two different languages, the Web Services Business Process Execution Language 2.0 and the Business Process Model and Notation 2.0, allow to uncover a variety of standard conformance issues in existing engines. This provides evidence that the standard-based portability of applications is a real issue. Based on these results, this thesis derives a measurement framework for portability. The framework is aligned to the ISO/IEC Systems and software Quality Requirements and Evaluation method, the recent revision of the renowned ISO/IEC software quality model and measurement methodology. This quality model separates the software quality characteristic of portability into the subcharacteristics of installability, adaptability, and replaceability. Each of these characteristics forms one part of the measurement framework. This thesis targets each characteristic with a separate analysis, metrics derivation, evaluation, and validation. We discuss existing metrics from the body of literature and derive new extensions speciffically tailored to the evaluation of service-oriented and process-aware software. Proposed metrics are defined formally and validated theoretically using an informal and a formal validation framework. Furthermore, the computation of the metrics has been prototypically implemented. This implementation is used to evaluate metrics performance in experiments based on large scale software libraries obtained from public open source software repositories.In summary, this thesis provides evidence that contemporary standards and their implementations are not sufficient for enabling the portability of process-aware and service-oriented applications. Furthermore, it proposes, validates, and practically evaluates a framework for measuring portability.
