Abstract

In contrast to the number of reports on domain analysis, little work has been done in describing the utilization of domain analysis results in the development of generic designs for building applications in a domain. This report describes a process for mapping domain information in Feature-Oriented Domain Analysis (FODA) into a generic design for a domain. The design includes supporting code components that conform to the Object Connection Architecture (OCA), a model for structuring software systems. A process for the use of the design in implementing applications is included. The processes and products described herein augment the final phase of domain analysis (or engineering) described in the original FODA report. This report also documents the continuing work of applying FODA to the movement control domain. The design and ADA code examples for the domain used in the document are from prototype software, created in part to test the processes presented.
