Abstract:


Typical complex software and systems engineering
projects involve a set of different engineering disciplines and
therefore heavily rely on systems integration approaches. Service-
oriented architecture and Enterprise Service Bus provide a
valuable basis for systems integration; however often depend on
tedious manual work or invasive and therefore inflexible adaptations
in case of even minimal changes to engineering processes or
engineering tools. In this paper we describe the Engineering Service
Bus (EngSB), an integration platform which not only integrates
tools and systems, but also provides a bridge between engineering
processes and existing engineering tools. We evaluate
the EngSB by implementing a standard software engineering
process for multi-engineering environments. Major results were
that the EngSB allows for non-invasive and flexible integration of
well-established tools in multi-engineering environments, while
enabling the integration to take place on the level of engineering
processes.
