Abstract:This research focuses on analogical reasoning as applied to the problem of software reuse at the level of the system architecture. The resulting methodology may be thought of as a hybrid approach to software reuse, as it combines a compositional developmental strategy with synthesis of role-based behaviors. The components of this research include: a methodology based upon an extension of object-oriented design principles that promotes decoupling of object representations and provides mechanisms for composing systems from abstract objects, relations, and frameworks; techniques for measuring the degree that two systems are analogically correlated; and automated support for the application of analogically derived mappings in the translation of system concepts from source to target domains.
