In recent years, Aspect-Oriented Software Development (AOSD) has emerged as a new technology addressing separation of concerns. However, this technology has not been widely adopted in real life scenarios mainly due to the lack of a clear AOSD methodology/p...
How MDA Can Help Designing Component- and Aspect-based Applications
Found in: Enterprise Distributed Object Computing Conference, IEEE International
By Lidia Fuentes, Mónica Pinto, Antonio Vallecillo
Issue Date:September 2003
pp. 124
Distributed systems are inherently complex, and therefore difficult to design and develop. Experience shows that new technologies-such as components, aspects, and application frameworks-can be effectively used for building distributed applications. However...

Issue Date:March 2003
pp. 242-260
<p><b>Abstract</b>—Traditional IDLs were defined for describing the services that objects offer, but not those services they require from other objects, nor the relative order in which they expect their methods to be called. Some of the e...
A Java Framework for Web-Based Multimedia and Collaborative Applications
Found in: IEEE Internet Computing
By Lidia Fuentes, José M. Troya
Issue Date:March 1999
pp. 55-64
<p>The MultiTel compositional framework for developing collaborative applications separates communication from data-processing components and also designates a Web-based distributed platform for intercomponent communication.</p>
Self-Adaptation of Mobile Systems with Dynamic Software Product Lines
Found in: IEEE Software
By Nadia Gamez,Lidia Fuentes,Jose Troya
Issue Date:February 2014
pp. 1
Mobile ecosystems are generally long-lived and sometimes operate in inaccessible areas, so they require support for self-adaptation to the continuous context changes. Dynamic Software Product Lines (DSPLs) produce software products capable of adapting to r...
