Reusing Specifications in OO Applications
March 1995 (vol. 12 no. 2)
pp. 65-75
Reuse in the early development phases of an application can reduce the effort of producing specifications and improve their quality. The paper presents the requirement specification phase for object-oriented applications under a reuse approach. Object-oriented specifications are reused by accessing a repository of reusable components and by adapting them to the application requirements. A model for specifications reuse based on the composition approach is presented; the model is also used to encode development knowledge guiding in the specification activity. Specification reuse is supported by a tool to select reusable components and to guide the developer in tailoring the components to the needs of a specific application. The RECAST tool (REquirement Composition And Specification Tool) presented in the paper has functionalities for retrieving reusable components from a repository and functionalities driving the composition and tailoring activities, on the basis of knowledge about the development process stored in the repository.
