This book focuses on software architecture and the value of architecture in the development of long-lived, mission-critical, trustworthy software-systems. The author introduces and demonstrates the powerful strategy of “Managed Evolution,” along with the engineering best practice known as “Principle-based Architecting.” The book examines in detail architecture principles for e.g., Business Value, Changeability, Resilience, and Dependability. The author argues that the software development community has a strong responsibility to produce and operate useful, dependable, and trustworthy software. Software should at the same time provide business value and guarantee many quality-of-service properties, including security, safety, performance, and integrity. As Dr. Furrer states, “Producing dependable software is a balancing act between investing in the implementation of business functionality and investing in the quality-of-service properties of the software-systems.” The book presents extensive coverage of such concepts as: Principle-Based Architecting Managed Evolution Strategy The Future Principles for Business Value Legacy Software Modernization/Migration Architecture Principles for Changeability Architecture Principles for Resilience Architecture Principles for Dependability The text is supplemented with numerous figures, tables, examples and illustrative quotations. Future-Proof Software-Systems provides a set of good engineering practices, devised for integration into most software development processes dedicated to the creation of software-systems that incorporate Managed Evolution.

Conventional build-then-test practices are making today’s embedded, software-reliant systems unaffordable to build. In response, more than thirty leading industrial organizations have joined SAE (formerly, the Society of Automotive Engineers) to define the SAE Architecture Analysis & Design Language (AADL) AS-5506 Standard, a rigorous and extensible foundation for model-based engineering analysis practices that encompass software system design, integration, and assurance. Using AADL, you can conduct lightweight and rigorous analyses of critical real-time factors such as performance, dependability, security, and data integrity. You can integrate additional established and custom analysis/specification techniques into your engineering environment, developing a fully unified architecture model that makes it easier to build reliable systems that meet customer expectations. Model-Based Engineering with AADL is the first guide to using this new international standard to optimize your development processes. Coauthored by Peter H. Feiler, the standard’s author and technical lead, this introductory reference and tutorial is ideal for self-directed learning or classroom instruction, and is an excellent reference for practitioners, including architects, developers, integrators, validators, certifiers, first-level technical leaders, and project managers. Packed with real-world examples, it introduces all aspects of the AADL notation as part of an architecture-centric, model-based engineering approach to discovering embedded software systems problems earlier, when they cost less to solve. Throughout, the authors compare AADL to other modeling notations and approaches, while presenting the language via a complete case study: the development and analysis of a realistic example system through repeated refinement and analysis. Part One introduces both the AADL language and core Model-Based Engineering (MBE) practices, explaining basic software systems modeling and analysis in the context of an example system, and offering practical guidelines for effectively applying AADL. Part Two describes the characteristics of each AADL element, including their representations, applicability, and constraints. The Appendix includes comprehensive listings of AADL language elements, properties incorporated in the AADL standard, and a description of the book’s example system.

“This is an incredibly wise and useful book. The authors have considerable real-world experience in delivering quality systems that matter, and their expertise shines through in these pages. Here you will learn what technical debt is, what is it not, how to manage it, and how to pay it down in responsible ways. This is a book I wish I had when I was just beginning my career. The authors present a myriad of case studies, born from years of experience, and offer a multitude of actionable insights for how to apply it to your project.” –Grady Booch, IBM Fellow Master Best Practices for Managing Technical Debt to Promote Software Quality and Productivity As software systems mature, earlier design or code decisions made in the context of budget or schedule constraints increasingly impede evolution and innovation. This phenomenon is called technical debt, and practical solutions exist. In Managing Technical Debt, three leading experts introduce integrated, empirically developed principles and practices that any software professional can use to gain control of technical debt in any software system. Using real-life examples, the authors explain the forms of technical debt that afflict software-intensive systems, their root causes, and their impacts. They introduce proven approaches for identifying and assessing specific sources of technical debt, limiting new debt, and “paying off” debt over time. They describe how to establish managing technical debt as a core software engineering practice in your organization. Discover how technical debt damages manageability, quality, productivity, and morale–and what you can do about it Clarify root causes of debt, including the linked roles of business goals, source code, architecture, testing, and infrastructure Identify technical debt items, and analyze their costs so you can prioritize action Choose the right solution for each technical debt item: eliminate, reduce, or mitigate Integrate software engineering practices that minimize new debt Managing Technical Debt will be a valuable resource for every software professional who wants to accelerate innovation in existing systems, or build new systems that will be easier to maintain and evolve.

Volume 1 of Software Engineering, Third Edition includes reprinted and newly authored papers that describe the technical processes of software development and the associated business and societal context. Together with Volume 2, which describes the key processes that support development, the two volumes address the key issues and tasks facing the software engineer today. The two volumes provide a self-teaching guide and tutorial for software engineers who desire to qualify themselves as Certified Software Development Professionals (CSDP) as described at the IEEE Computer Society Web site (www.computer.org/certification), while also gaining a fuller understanding of standards-based software development. Both volumes consist of original papers written expressly for the two volumes, as well as authoritative papers from the IEEE archival journals, along with papers from other highly regarded sources. The papers and introductions of each chapter provide an orientation to the key concepts and activities described in the new 2004 version as well as the older 2001 version of the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK), with many of the key papers having been written by the authors of the corresponding chapters of the SWEBOK. Software Engineering is further anchored in the concepts of IEEE/EIA 12207.0-1997 Standard for Information Technology--Software Life Cycle Processes, which provides a framework for all primary and supporting processes, activities, and tasks associated with software development. As the only self-help guide and tutorial based on IEEE/EIA 12207.0--1997, this is an essential reference for software engineers, programmers, and project managers. This volume can also form part of an upper-division undergraduate or graduate-level engineering course. Each chapter in this volume consists of an introduction to the chapter's subject area and an orientation to the relevant areas of the SWEBOK, followed by the supporting articles and, where applicable, the specific IEEE software engineering standard. By emphasizing the IEEE software engineering standards, the SWEBOK, and the contributions of key authors, the two volumes provide a comprehensive orientation to the landscape of software engineering as practiced today. Contents: * Key concepts and activities of software and systems engineering * Societal and legal contexts in which software development takes place * Key IEEE software engineering standards * Software requirements and methods for developing them * Essential concepts and methods of software design * Guidelines for the selection and use of tools and methods * Major issues and activities of software construction * Software development testing * Preparation and execution of software maintenance programs
