Aspect-Oriented Specification: A Case Study in Space Domain

Aspect-oriented software development claims to increase several software engineering principles, such as modularization, abstraction and composability. This paper presents ASSD, “Aspect Specification for the Space Domain”, a metadata-driven approach for aspect-oriented requirements analysis. This approach has been defined in the context of the ASSD project, funded by the European Space Agency , whose main objectives were to study the applicability and usefulness of aspect-orientation for the space domain (ground segment software projects in particular), focusing on the early stages of the software development life cycle. Therefore, this paper describes a rigorous representation for requirements analysis concepts, refines an approach for handling early aspects, and proposes a client/server architecture based on a metadata repository. The ASSD approach has been validated with two Space domain case studies.
