In this paper, an overview is given of the different alternatives to an integrating computational framework. A new framework will be introduced, which incorporates the latest computational techniques and more importantly a mind-set emphasizing flexibility, modularity, portability and re-usability. Distributed object computing extends an object oriented system which allows objects to interact across heterogenous networks and interoperate as a unified whole. Integrated computing frameworks are discussed, together with data transport techniques such as Extensible Markup Language (XML) and Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) to achieve platform, code and meta-model independent integration. In addition, the paper will illustrate through an air vehicle example that using open-source tools are a valid alternative to commercial packages. Added advantages are the access to source code which is extremely useful in a conceptual systems-of-systems research environment.

Bowring, James Frederick; Harrold, Mary Jean; Rehg, James Matthew (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005)One approach to the automatic classification of program behaviors is to view these behaviors as the collection of all the program's executions. Many features of these executions, such as branch profiles, can be measured, ...
