Component-based software development for embedded systems
An overview of current research trends. State-of-the-Art Survey
This book provides a good opportunity for software engineering practitioners and researchers to get in sync with the current state-of-the-art and future trends in component-based embedded software research. The book is based on a selective compilation of papers that cover the complete component-based embedded software spectrum, ranging from methodology to tools. Methodology aspects covered by the book include functional and non-functional specification, validation, verification, and component architecture. As tools are a critical success factor in the transfer from academia-generated knowledge to industry-ready technology, an important part of the book is devoted to tools. This state-of-the-art survey contains 16 carefully selected papers organised in topical sections on specification and verification, component compatibility, component architectures, implementation and tool support, as well as non-functional properties.
