MetadataShow full item record
The Computer Aided Prototyping System (CAPS) was created to rapidly prototype real-time systems to determine early in the development cycle whether system requirements can be met . The CAPS consists of several software tools that automatically generate an executable Ada model of the proposed system. This thesis describes the development of a design database (DDB) for the CAPS. The DDB is an engineering database that contains all information related to a prototype software design. The DDB enhances the CAPS environment and the prototyping paradigm by providing to the designer the functions of storage, retrieval, viewing, and versioning of prototype components. Garry Lewis is the primary author of chapters I and II and Drew Dwyer the primary author of chapters in and IV. In the joint implementation, Lewis focused on the design database schema and C++/ONTOS issues. Dwyer was responsible for building the command line interface, the hierarchical k-ary data structures and the C++ classes/methods for traversing this structure. Items not covered in the above description were mutually developed.
