A.I. Bleeker, and M. Agosti. Semantic Indexing in the context of Digital Libraries. Technical report: CSI-R9621, Computing Science Institute, University of Nijmegen, 1996.

This paper provides a classification and analyses the approaches to indexing being a traditional central issue of research in Information Retrieval (IR). Currently indexing is being experienced as a key problem in building and searching large-scale digital libraries. The process of using a digital library means searching across distributed repositories, where a repository is an indexed collection of objects. Indexing was initially developed for textual documents only. Now the repositories that participate in a digital library can contain any sort of digitalised objects, so indexing needs to face the problem of developing automatic or semi-automatic methods to semantically indexing multimedia documents to allow content-based multimedia searching and retrieval across distributed repositories.

The initial part of the paper gives a short but systematic presentation of the peculiarities of content-based multimedia retrieval. The core of the paper focuses on semantic multimedia indexing. It discusses in what way multimedia indexing is different from textual indexing and it proposes a way to systematize the plethora of approaches currently present in the area. A systematic and general classification scheme of indexing techniques is proposed that can be used to classify approaches to multimedia retrieval, independently of the applications. A classification of a number of the existing approaches within the framework presented is given as well.

Some considerations on the parallel problem of evaluation of search and retrieval from digital repositories are given at the end, these raise from the need for methods and experimental settings that give reproducible results when evaluating different approaches of semantic multimedia indexing.

The paper refers on a part of a co-operative work on digital libraries at present underway in the Institutions of the authors.

This paper proposes the term method engineering for the research field of the construction of information system development methods and tools. Some research issues in method engineering are identified. One of the major research topics in method engineering is discussed in depth: situational methods, i.e.\ the configuration of a project approach that is tuned to the project at hand. A language and support tool for the engineering of situational methods are discussed.

A Process for Transitioning to Object-Oriented Technology. Technical report, Defence Information Systems Agency Center for Standards, United States of America, 1996.

The use of object-oriented technology (OOT) to develop software is becoming increasingly popular. Organizations unfamiliar with OOT may be ready to investigate whether the technology can provide them with significant improvements over present software development capabilities. While OOT is not the solution to every software development problem, it does offer the potential for improving productivity and quality.

The purpose of this document is to provide a suggested approach for an organization that wants to transition object-oriented techniques into its software development process. It describes a process for introducing and transitioning OOT to an organization. The process uses a pilot project as the primary mechanism for introducing OOT into the organization. The pilot project, or a small number of such projects, will provide sufficient OOT exposure to determine how suitable the technology is to the organization. The use of a pilot project captures important feedback for future potential projects, and the risks inherent in evaluating any new technology are isolated. The primary audience for this document is software development managers and developers within Department of Defense Central Design Activities, although most aspects of the transition process are generally applicable to any organization interested in transitioning to OOT.

Legacy System Wrapping for DOD Information System Modernization. Technical report, Defence Information Systems Agency Center for Standards, United States of America, 1996.

Many of the current software engineering activities in the Department of Defense (DoD) center on migrating from obsolete legacy software systems to modernized migration systems. Legacy information systems incorporate obsolete technology such as closed systems, "stovepipe" design, and outmoded programming languages or database systems. Modernized migration systems are those systems, already in existence or being planned, that utilize or intend to utilize contemporary best practices in design and implementation. To date, transitioning a legacy system to a migration system has proven to be difficult.

Object-oriented technology (OOT) may be counted among the best practices for software development by virtue of its efficiencies in development and maintenance and its inherent support for reuse. OOT consists of a set of methodologies and tools for developing and maintaining software systems using software objects composed of encapsulated data and operations as the central paradigm. Software wrapping is a technique in which an interface is created around an existing piece of software, providing a new view of the software to external systems, objects, or users. Wrapping can be accomplished at multiple levels: around data, individual modules, subsystems, or entire systems.

This document describes the potential benefits, problems, and issues in using the OO technique of software wrapping in DoD information systems. It also describes the essential activities in OO wrapping, from determining the suitability of wrapping applications to implementing wrappers of legacy code or data using the Ada programming language.
