The OCoN Approach for Object-Oriented Distributed Software Systems Modeling

Holger Giese and Guido Wirtz
Computer Systems Science & Engineering 16(3):157-172, 2001.

Abstract:

There are many significant problems related to engineering distributed software systems that feature both control and data processing aspects. Besides software complexity, in general we also have to tackle issues of concurrency and distribution. A set of well-evolved formalisms particularly w.r.t. concurrency indeed exists, although the integration of such into a common software engineering framework is still lacking. Related attempts have often not achieved the desired level of acceptance. A fast growing market for distributed software does, however, effectuate a shift towards high-level behavior modeling. The OCoN approach as presented in this article provides such high-level behavior modeling as an extension to the UML de facto standard for object-oriented modeling by integrating an adjusted Petri net formalism with the software engineering reality.
