About these proceedings
FIDJI 2004 was an international forum for researchers and practitioners int- estedinthe advancesin,andapplicationsof,softwareengineeringfordistributed application development. Concerning the technologies, the workshop focused on “Java-related” technologies. It was an opportunity to present and observe the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas. Allpaperssubmittedtothisworkshopwerereviewedbyatleasttwomembers of the International Program Committee. Acceptance was based primarily on originality and contribution. We selected, for these post-workshop proceedings, 11 papers amongst 22 submitted, a tutorial and two keynotes. FIDJI2004aimedatpromotingascienti?capproachtosoftwareengineering. The scope of the workshop included the following topics: – design of distributed applications – development methodologies for software and system engineering – UML-based development methodologies – development of reliable and secure distributed systems – component-based development methodologies – dependability support during system life cycle – fault tolerance re?nement, evolution and decomposition – atomicity and exception handling in system development – software architectures, frameworks and design patterns for developing d- tributed systems – integration of formal techniques in the development process – formal analysis and grounding of modelling notation and techniques (e. g. , UML, metamodelling) – supporting the security and dependability requirements of distributed app- cations in the development process – distributed software inspection – refactoring methods – industrial and academic case studies – development and analysis tools The organization of such a workshop represents an important amount of work.
