Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED PHASE I EFFORT IS TO DEFINE, DEMONSTRATE, AND VALIDATE THE CONCEPT FOR A CLICHE-BASED SOFTWARE COMPONENT SELECTION SYSTEM THAT CAN AUTOMATICALLY SELECT THE BEST POSSIBLE ASSETS FROM A REUSABLE SOFTWARE LIBRARY TO MEET THE DEVELOPERS NEED. THE APPROACH IS BASED UPON A CONCEPT OF CLICHES THAT ARE ABSTRACT, SKELETAL REPRESENTATIONS OF THE SEMANTICS AND STRUCTURE OF SOFTWARE COMPONENTS. DURING THE SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS THE DEVELOPER WILL HAVE THE CAPABILITY TO RETRIEVE REUSABLE ASSETS AND SELECT THOSE BEST-FIT ASETS BASED UPON HIS DEVELOPMENT CONTEXT. THE CLICHE-BASED SOFTWARE COMPONENT SELECTION SYSTEMS WOULD ANALYZE THE DEVELOPER'S NEED, AS REPRESENTED IN THE DEVELOPER'S DESIGN EDITOR, AND COMPARE THAT NEED WITH CLICHE REPRESENTATIONS OF THE CANDIDATE COMPONENTS. PHASE I WILL DEFINE VARIOUS REPRESENTATIONS AND ALGORITHMS TO BE USED FOR BEST-ASSET SELECTION AND DEFINE THE PHASE II SYSTEM ARCHITETURE.
