Title: Master Thesis: Component Repository Browser
Subject: Computer Science
Level: Advanced
Description: A successful reuse of components assumes existence of component repositories and efficient search mechanisms to find existing components according to some criteria.
In PROGRESS, the component technology provides a basic support for component management in a repository: import, export and a basing browsing, but there exist no support for efficient search of components or advanced browsing of components, and a user-friendly presentation of components.
The goal of this thesis is to build an advanced component browser. In the browser it should be possible to
Browse through components and subcomponents providing different types of views (such as hierarchical view, a list, components dependencies, etc.).
Display details of components as they can be shown in PROGRESS-IDE editors.
Providing different searching mechanism to find components. The search mechanisms should be a) per particular architectural element of components, such as interface, or sourcecode, or particular atribute b) some metadata saved in components, c) any type of search. Some search machines such as Google search machine should be used.
Expected outcome:
a design and a prototype of the repository browser, preferably implemented in Eclipse
the thesis report describing work done and an overview of searching strategies
