Current Trends in Web Engineering

Current Trends in Web Engineering

Author: Marco Brambilla Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 24/06/2020

This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-workshop proceedings of the 19th International Conference on Web Engineering, ICWE 2019, held in Daejeon, South Korea, in June 2019. The 11 revised full papers were selected from 25 submissions. The workshops complement the main conference and explore new trends on core topics of Web engineering and provide an open discussion space combining solid theory work with practical on-the-field experience. The workshop committee accepted three workshops for publication in this volume: 5th International Workshop on Knowledge Discovery on the Web (KDWEB 2019), Second International Workshop on Maturity of Web Engineering Practices (MATWEP 2019), International Workshop on Data Science and Knowledge Graph (DSKG 2019).

Model-Driven Software Engineering in Practice

Model-Driven Software Engineering in Practice

Author: Marco Brambilla, Jordi Cabot, Manuel Wimmer, Luciano Baresi Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/03/2017

This book discusses how model-based approaches can improve the daily practice of software professionals. This is known as Model-Driven Software Engineering (MDSE) or, simply, Model-Driven Engineering (MDE). MDSE practices have proved to increase efficiency and effectiveness in software development, as demonstrated by various quantitative and qualitative studies. MDSE adoption in the software industry is foreseen to grow exponentially in the near future, e.g., due to the convergence of software development and business analysis. The aim of this book is to provide you with an agile and flexible tool to introduce you to the MDSE world, thus allowing you to quickly understand its basic principles and techniques and to choose the right set of MDSE instruments for your needs so that you can start to benefit from MDSE right away. The book is organized into two main parts. The first part discusses the foundations of MDSE in terms of basic concepts (i.e., models and transformations), driving principles, application scenarios, and current standards, like the well-known MDA initiative proposed by OMG (Object Management Group) as well as the practices on how to integrate MDSE in existing development processes. The second part deals with the technical aspects of MDSE, spanning from the basics on when and how to build a domain-specific modeling language, to the description of Model-to-Text and Model-to-Model transformations, and the tools that support the management of MDSE projects. The second edition of the book features: a set of completely new topics, including: full example of the creation of a new modeling language (IFML), discussion of modeling issues and approaches in specific domains, like business process modeling, user interaction modeling, and enterprise architecture complete revision of examples, figures, and text, for improving readability, understandability, and coherence better formulation of definitions, dependencies between concepts and ideas addition of a complete index of book content In addition to the contents of the book, more resources are provided on the book's website.
