Johannes Kepler University Linz

This partner in the consortium consists of the Software Engineering Department and the System Software Department both located at the University of Linz, Austria.

For the proposed project, the University of Linz will contribute its research expertise in software engineering and framework design as well as its practical experience in the development of frameworks. It is also a provider of tools for this project.

The Software Engineering Department has a staff of ten full time researchers. Current research topics are the synthesis of object-oriented and prototyping-oriented development approaches; construction of an object-oriented software development environment; design and implementation of the object-oriented software programming language Omega; research into design principles for class libraries and application frameworks, development of domain-specific class libraries, basics for the construction of documentation, configuration and maintenance tools for object-oriented software systems; object-oriented information systems; concepts and tools for visual programming. The most important results of the last two years are summarized in five books and some 35 journal articles and conference proceedings.

The System Software Department has a staff of four full-time researchers. It works in the fields of operating systems, programming languages, software tools and object-oriented software design. Current research focuses on design techniques for object-oriented frameworks, hypertext tools for structuring, annotating and browsing frameworks, as well as dynamic analysis tools for understanding object-oriented software. The department has several years of experience in object-oriented programming and has developed numerous frameworks.
