Abstract:

Domain analysis, which refers to identifying and structuring information common to a family of software applications, is a key activity for organizations adopting reuse-oriented development methods. The benefits of domain analysis extend beyond simply supporting reuse, however. In this paper, we show how domain analysis can serve as an important technique for quality assurance by serving as the basis for software component certification. We describe how domain analysis can be used to gather quality requirements for a family of systems. We then describe our approach to certification, ending with some preliminary results.
