An Architecture-based Approach to Support Alternative Design Decision in Component-Based System: A Case Study from Information System Domain
Component-Based System (CBS) is a promised approach to build applications from deployed components. It provides efficiency, reliability, maintainability. Interpreting the results of performance analysis and generating an alternative design to build system from component (Hardware/Software) is a great challenge in the software performance domain. There are so many options to compose the system. Span of design space hinders the selection of the appropriate design alternative. Currently, Meta-heuristics such as Genetic Algorithm (GA) methods are used to solve the problem. In recent investigations Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), an alternative search technique, often outperforms GA when applied to various problems. In this paper, the authors describe performance prediction approach based on PSO for component-based system development.
