A comparison of graphical design techniques for parallel, distributed software
View PDF Version
We have compared three graphical design techniques, OMT, ADL, and PARSE, on their suitability for the development of parallel/distributed applications. Our method has been to use all three of them in modeling one, existing, application: a backup facility running within the Andrew File System. We compare and analyze the outcomes on a number of important design aspects. Based on this, we draw conclusions on each individual technique and on graphical design techniques for parallel/distributed software in general.
