DOMAIN MODEL REFINEMENT
A domain model, or Domain Object Model (DOM) in problem solving and software engineering can be thought of as a conceptual model of a domain of interest (often referred to as a problem domain) which describes the various entities, their attributes and relationships, plus the constraints that govern the integrity of the model elements comprising that problem domain.
A detailed software development plan, containing:
An updated risk assessment,
A management plan,
A staffing plan,
A phase plan showing the number and contents of the iteration An iterative plan, detailing the next iteration
The development environment and other tools required
A test plan
A baseline vision, in the form of a set of evaluation criteria for the final product Objective, measurable evaluation criteria for assessing the results of the initial iterations of the construction phase A domain analysis model (80% complete), sufficient to be able to call the corresponding architecture 'complete'. A software architecture description (stating constraints and limitations) An executable architectural baseline.
An application domain model describes a class of related applications. As a particular application is read and understood, the application domain model should be refined (specialized and instantiated) to reflect its specific characteristics.
* Particularly in situations where older programming languages are used, begin by looking for the occurrence of modern control structures implemented by more primitive constructs (representation) * Likewise, look for the use of primitive data structures to represent unavailable ones (representation) * It may sometimes be necessary to reconfigure the control flow of the program to increase structure (representation) * Look for special cases; that is, look for similar sections of code that differ only in a small number of ways.
