Anton Gerdessen, Master thesis Page 58 of 78 Addendum A: Framework technical domain recognition This addendum describes how the definitions for the framework technical domains were formed. A-1 Scalability A definition found in the book [Bas03] for scalability is: “The system should support variations in load without human intervention.” Another definition found [Det01] is: “Scalability is the ability of a computer application or product to continue to function well as it (or its context) is changed in size or volume. Typically, the rescaling is to a larger size or volume.” Distribution can be defined as: “A digital information system dispersed over multiple computers and not centralized at a single location.” [Guy91] From this, we can derive that distribution is an implementation of scalability, by distributing the workload over several machines, the workload is divided over multiple machines and more data can be processed than by using a single machine. Transaction management is vital to using distributed computing and can be seen as a basis requirement for distributed computing. Scalability is also mentioned as one of the characteristics for enterprise applications in [Fay00b]. For these reasons, scalability is the technical domain. A-2 Persistency In [Cah98] the following definition is used for persistency: “Persistency refers to the characteristic of data that outlives the execution of the program that created it.” This description captures the most important characteristic, but another characteristic to identify persistency as a framework domain is the layer it creates between the data storage and the application logic itself. Persistency is related to performance, the type of persistence can have a great impact on the performance. However, persistency covers far more than just performance. In addition, the type of mapping used to change from the internal application structure to data

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
