Product Line Software Engineering and Open Source Article in OBJEKTspektrum Magazine March/April 2009

At the end Frank and I managed to publish an article in OBJEKTspektrum magazine (March/April 2009) about PLSE in German language. In this article you can read the development of our software product line: ProMI...

Produktlinien-Softwaretechnik mit Open-Source-Produkten

"Mit der wachsenden Größe und Komplexität von IT-Systemen gewinnt die Wiederverwendung von Software immer mehr an Bedeutung. Hier versucht die Produktlinien-Softwaretechnik einen Beitrag zur Verbesserung der Wiederverwendung zu leiten. Anhand von praktischen Beispielen verdeutlicht dieser Artikel, wie Software-Produktlinien entstehen und mit Hilfe von Open-Source-Produkten einfach realisiert werden können. Zudem werden sieben "Best Practices" vorgestellt, die sinnvolle Unterstützung beim Einsatz der Produktlinien-Softwaretechnik geben."

Have fun!

Creating Spring Bean dynamically in the Runtime

In my training someone asked me whether it is possible to create an object (a Spring Bean) dynamically so you can choose which implementation you want to have in the runtime. So at the compile time you don't know what object actually should be created yet. The application should decide what object to be created based on a property file.

1. We create an annotation so we can mark the method which should be able to create the object dynamically:

package your.package;
public @interface InjectDynamicObject {
2. Use the new created annotation in your method which should be able to create the object dynamically:
... @Named("customerBo") public class CustomerBoImpl implements CustomerBo { ...     @Override @InjectDynamicObject public Customer getDynamicCustomer() {         return this.dynamicCustomer; } ...
3. Write an aspect with Pointcut and Advise which change the object returned by the method in the step 2:
... @Named @Aspect public class Dyn…

Software Development Macro and Micro Process

If you think that in year 2012 all companies which produce software and IT divisions in our world have already their optimized software development process, you are wrong. It seems that we - software architects, software developers or whatever your title is - still need to optimize the software development process in many software companies and IT divisions.

So what do you do if you enter a software company or IT division and you see following things:

1. There is a perfect project management process to handle all those development of software butit is a pure project management without a context to software development. So basically you only take care of cost, time, budget and quality factors. In the software development you still use the old fashioned waterfall process.

2. From the tooling point of view: you have a project management planning and controlling tool but you are still in the beginning of Wiki (almost no collaboration tool) andyou don't use issues tracking system to han…
