ELKAR - Ré-Ingénierie d'applications pour la mise en oeuvre de la coopération : Méthodologie et Architecture

Abstract : There an increasing demand from firms to evolve their applications to be more co-operative. The problem is to realise this migration and to maintain the quality of existing applications which are reliable due to previously encountered difficulties.
This assumes the re-engineering of these applications. In some cases, temporary and non-satisfying applications have been added as external co-operation. It consists of human, software, hardware to link with some entities producing information for those who need it. This external co-operation presents several inconveniences : often slow, not very efficient and flexible. It also needs a lot of work, often disproportionate regarding to the gain.
Automating co-operation, we hope to eliminate problems enumerated above, and we think that we can improve qualitatively and quantitatively the amount of co-operation.
We will propose a method based on an organisation of dynamic workgroups (their composition can evolve with time) composed of operative modules. This method will also allow to bring to the fore co-operative elements, and to link them with an eventual composition to create new ones semantically richer and more suitable to a co-operative environment/context.
In order to propose an operational method, the last stage will propose to obtain rules derived from a specification language associated to the method. These rules allow the realisation of the implementation of the concrete co-operation. Next, they will be executed into the distributed run-time we developed. They will allow the dynamic workgroup management and the circulating of co-operative elements.
Our approach allows the provision of co-operation thanks to the application re-engineering without modifying any existing operative module. We propose a method entirely derivable (after a formal verification) into rules integrated into a co-operative architecture allowing the co-operation.
