JECKO, a Context-Driven Approach to Analysis and Design

In order to address the problem of adapting methodology to specific environment, we propose JECKO, a context-driven approach to analysis and design. In this approach, the software context is specified through for the software context.

We demonstrate how we could take advantage of the software context through a flexible framework that supports analysis and design. The adaptability is handled through fragmentation. Each fragment is provided with a generalized description of modeling rules and/or guidelines. We distinguish prime fragments, useful whatever the software context might be, from specific fragments, that are dedicated to a particular context. Modeling rules and guidelines are illustrated with the UML notation.

In order to tailor the development process to specific software, fragments are selected against the particular software context. The chosen fragments define the route map, dedicated to the software that is being considered. By following the route map adapted to the software context, the analysis and design activities, as well as their outcomes, could be enhanced and better controlled.
