SE talk at Chalmers, Gothenburg, Sweden
An ontological approach to technology documentation
Room 473 / Wed March 1 - 11:00 - 12:00.
Speaker: Ralf Lämmel, University of Koblenz-Landau
Abstract: In this talk, I am going to present an ontological approach to software technology documentation. That is, usage scenarios of a technology (such as an object/relational mapper, a web-application framework, or a model transformation) are captured in terms of the involved entities (e.g., artifacts, languages, abstract processes, programming paradigms, functions, and function applications) and the relationships between them (e.g., membership, conformance, transformation, usage, and reference). I am going to discuss language and tool support for and experiences with developing such technology documentation. In the SoftLang team at Koblenz, we work on the related but broader notion of "linguistic software architecture" or "megamodeling". I will briefly discuss applications of megamodeling other than technology documentation, namely build management and regression testing. More information: http://www.softlang.org/mega
