Abstract:

THE PROBLEM OF INCREMENTAL OVERLOAD RESOLUTION IS NOW THE KEY IMPEDIMENT TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF INCREMENTAL COMPILERS FOR ADA AND OTHER MODERN PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES APPROPRIATE FOR LARGE-SCALE SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT. THE OBJECTIVE OF THISPROPOSAL IS TO DEVELOP, ANALYZE, AND MEASURE A HIGH-PERFORMANCE ALGORITHM FOR INCREMENTAL OVERLOAD RESOLUTION AND TO EXAMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF COMBINING THAT ALGORITHM WITH OTHER INCREMENTAL COMPILER TECHNOLOGIES IN ANINTEGRATED SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT ENVIRONMENT. THE RESEARCH WILL ALSO INCORPORATE SEVERAL PROMISING HEURISTICS FOR IMPROVING THE EXPECTED PERFORMANCE OF THE ALGORITHM. IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER INCREMENTAL TECHNOLOGIES THIS ALGORITHM SHOULD DRAMATICALLY REDUCE THE TIME FOR THE EDIT-COMPILE-LINK CYCLE IN THE MAINTENANCE OF VERY LARGE SOFTWARE APPLICATIONS. THE EXPECTED ORDERS-OF-MAGNITUDE REDUCTION IN RESPONSE TIME WILL SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE THE PRODUCTIVITY OF SOFTWARE MAINTENANCE PERSONNEL WITH ATTENDANT GAINS IN SOFTWARE RELIABILITY.
