Abstract [en]

Component-based software engineering (CBSE) and model-driven development (MDD) are two approaches for handling software development complexity. In essence, while CBSE focuses on the construction of systems from existing software modules called components; MDD promotes the usage of system models which after a series of transformations result with an implementation of the desired system. Even though they are different, MDD and CBSE are not mutually exclusive. However, there has not been any substantial research about what their similarities and differences are and how they can be combined. In this respect, the main goal of this thesis is to summarize the theoretical background of MDD and CBSE, and to propose and apply a systematic method for their comparison. The method takes into account the different effects that these development paradigms have on a wide range of development aspects. The comparison results are then summarized and analyzed.

The thesis also enriches the theoretical discussion with a practical case study comparing CBSE and MDD with respect to ProCom, a component model designed for the development of component-based embedded systems in the vehicular-, automation- and telecommunication domains. The aforementioned comparison method is refined and applied for this purpose. The comparison results are again summarized, analyzed and proposals about future work on ProCom are made.
