About this book
In his study, Mahdi Derakhshanmanesh builds on the state of the art in modeling by proposing to integrate models into running software on the component-level without translating them to code. Such so-called model-integrating software exploits all advantages of models: models implicitly support a good separation of concerns, they are self-documenting and thus improve understandability and maintainability, and in contrast to model-driven approaches there is no synchronization problem anymore between the models and the code generated from them. Using model-integrating components, software will be easier to build and easier to evolve by just modifying the respective model in an editor. Furthermore, software may also adapt itself at runtime by transforming its own model part.
- An extensive description of foundations and related work

- A reference implementation (based on Java, OSGi and TGraphs) and its application
- Software engineering researchers and students in the fields of component-based software engineering, self-adaptive software, (dynamic) software product line engineering and modelling
- Component developers and users as well as creators of domain-specific (modeling) languages
