Applying Aspect-Oriented Change Realization in the Mobile Application Domain
Aspect-oriented programming makes possible to express changes in a modular way directly at the level of programming language constructs. This is particularly useful in situations that require explicit change manipulation, such as change reapplication to another version branch in application customization. However, it may be tricky to employ appropriate aspect-oriented constructs in a correct way that accommodates well the change to be implemented. This has been successfully addressed by an approach to aspect-oriented change realization based on a two-level change type model, which features a catalog of speci cation and implementation change types and their relationships, primarily targeting the web application domain. In this paper, we explore the applicability of the change types gathered in this catalog for the mobile application domain. For this, we performed a study that involved a set of hypothetical scenarios and two real mobile applications for Android. The study revealed that the change types known from the web application domain are in their essence applicable to the mobile application domain. It also lead to the discovery of four new specification change types in the mobile application domain and the corresponding speci cation–implementation change type relationships along with further relationships between known change types.
