English abstract:
Understanding architectural characteristics of software components
that constitute distributed systems is crucial for maintaining and
evolving them. One component framework heavily used for developing
component-based software systems is Microsoft's COM+. In this paper we
particularly concentrate on the analysis of COM+ components and
introduce an iterative and interactive approach that combines
component inspection techniques with source code analysis to obtain a
complete abstract model of each COM+ component. The model describes
important architectural characteristics such as transactions,
security, and persistency, as well as create and use dependencies
between components, and maps these higher-level concepts down to their
implementation in source files. Based on the model, engineers can
browse the software system's COM+ components and navigate from the
list of architectural characteristics to the corresponding source code
statements. We also discuss the Island Hopper application with which
our approach has been validated.
