Qinna, une architecture à base de composants pour la gestion de la qualité de service dans les systèmes embarqués mobiles

Abstract : Component-Based Software Engineering is quickly becoming a mainstream
approach to software development. At the same time, there is a massive
shift from desktop applications to embedded communicating systems
(e.g. PDAs or smartphones): it is especially the case for multimedia
applications such as video players, music players, etc. Moreover,
embedded communicating systems have to deal with open aspect:
applications may come or leave the system on the fly. A key point of
these systems is its ability to rigorously manage Quality of Service
due to resource constraints. In this thesis, we present a
component-based QoS architecture well-suited for open systems, called
Qinna. Qinna is defined using Fractal components and takes into
consideration the main QoS concepts (specification, provision and
management) through the use of contracts between components. The Qinna
architecture allows to deal with QoS of each layer of a system
(application, services, operating system, resources) in order to have
a fine grain management of resources. The architecture has been first
validated thanks to a qualitative evaluation using generic
architectural pattern. Then, Qinna has been validated from a
quantitative point of view in order to demonstrate its low cost.
Finally, this work opens many research perspectives such as the
generalization of the architecture to other non functional properties
(security, fault tolerance, etc.).
