M. Rychlý: Modeling of Component-Based Systems
This seminar is organized by the Department of Information Systems at the Faculty of Information Technologies of the Brno University of Technology. It primarily discusses the theoretical and practical aspects of information systems and their use. The seminar takes place at room C228 of the faculty building every Monday 12.15 - 13.15 during the semester.
A selection of previous audio-recorded seminar contributions is available at http://www.fit.vutbr.cz/units/UIFS/events/.

Title: Modeling of Component-Based Systems
Design of an information system should be focused on the system's architecture. The architecture has to conform with functional requirements, used implementation technologies and development methods, constraints given by the system's environment, connections to well-established existing systems and integration of existing parts of third-party systems, etc. The most of those architectural requirements are possible to model at a design-time, but often we have to design a system, which architecture will be dynamic, there will be evolution of components, their connections and context at the system's run-time. Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) can be an example of architecture where description of possible structural and behavioural evolution is quite difficult. This presentation deals with modelling of component-based systems and description of their behaviour. We will focus on a component model that addresses dynamic reconfiguration including component mobility.
