Title: Component-models classification – a systematic review
Subject: Computer Science
Level: Advanced
Description: Thesis: Component-models classification – a systematic review

The essence of component-based software engineering is embodied in component models. Component models specify the properties of components and the mechanism of component compositions.

This work will provide a systematic literature review of component models. The review is related to the paper

Ivica Crnkovic, Séverine Sentilles Aneta Vulgarakis, and Michel Chaudron:
“A Classification Framework for Component Models”

The literature, that is related to the component models from the scientific databases should be analyzed and classified according to the framework described in the paper.

The thesis work will include the following tasks:

a) Study and provide a summary of a systematic literature review
b) Study the classification framework – prepare the main categories for the classification
c) Identify the strategy for the systematic review – a review plan:
a. Identify the databases to be searched for
b. Identify the selection criteria
c. Identify the sets of search keywords
d. Prepare a “reference system” for reviewing- for easy browsing in the found papers (consider for example Mendeley or EndNotes), titles, abstracts, references
d) provide queries and download the papers, populate the reference systems
e) analyze the papers and classify them according to the main categories
f) provide a statistics and summaries for the classified papers
g) provide a citation ranking of classified papers
