Software Architecture Recovery and Consistency of Mobile Applications

Project Description

Project Summary: Mobile applications are being developed by new platforms such as Android with their own programming languages, e.g., Java version for Android. Currently, mobile applications are small and developed by a single person. As these applications grow and evolve, the software architecture of the system becomes important. The objective of this project is to extend an approach called Reflexion Modeling, for allowing mobile software engineers to recover the software architecture of a mobile application and the check its consistency with a planned architectural model. This will involve tailoring an architectural model notation, use both static and dynamic analysis techniques to interpret the mobile system, define mappings between architectural model and a mobile platform, develop a prototype tool for allowing mobile software engineers to recover and check consistency of mobile applications and their planned architecture, and empirically validate the prototype tool and approach.

Students Background: -Software Engineering -Mobile Development - To gain knowledge in software architecture

Funding Notes

Brunel offers a number of funding options to research students that help cover the cost of their tuition fees, contribute to living expenses or both. See more information here: View Website. Recently the UK Government made available the Doctoral Student Loans of up to £25,000 for UK and EU students and there is some funding available through the Research Councils. Many of our international students benefit from funding provided by their governments or employers. Brunel alumni enjoy tuition fee discounts of 15%.)
