Problem Decomposition for Reuse
Authors: Daniel Jackson and Michael Jackson
Technical Report CMU-CS-95-108.
An approach to software development problems is presented, and illustrated
by an example. The approach is based on the ideas of problem frames and
structuring specifications by views. It is claimed that decompositions
obtained by this approach result in a more effective separation of
concerns, and that the resulting components are more likely to be reusable
than those obtained by more conventional approaches. The characteristics
of desirable integration mechanisms are discussed, together with some other
considerations arising out of the approach presented.
