De Arquitecturas Organizacionais em i* para Arquitecturas Baseadas em Agentes: Uma Abordagem Orientada a Modelos
Requirements are usually understood as stating what a system is supposed to do, as opposed to how it should do it. The understanding of the organizational context justifies and helps understanding the rationales (the “Whys”) that lead up to some important system requirements of a successful software system. Requirements modeling techniques can be used to help dealing with the knowledge and analysis needed in this early phase of the development. However, most existing requirements techniques are intended more for the later phase of requirements engineering. Agent-oriented development aims at fulfilling this gap but this is quite recent. Among the several concerns required for the consolidation of this new paradigm, the Tropos project is developing an approach for agent-oriented development based on the social and intentional concepts offered by the i* organizational modeling approach. However, the use of i* is not suitable as an architectural description language. Recognizing that the Unified Modeling Language (UML) can be extended to act as an architectural description language, this dissertation main goal is to design and automate the needed transformations between architectural models written in i* to architectural models written in an Agency profile of UML, used to model multi-agent systems, using an MDE approach.
