Educational JavaBeans: a Requirements Driven Architecture.
Hall, Jon; Rapanotti, Lucia
This paper investigates, through a case study, the development of a software architecture that is compatible with a system's high-level requirements. The case study is an example of an extended customer/supplier relationship (post-point of sale support) involved in e-universities and is representative of a class of enterprise without current architectural support. The relevant high-level business processes are described. Requirements and challenges of the current business model are highlighted, and discharging and meeting them through electronic support is explored. Specifically, the paper considers the current manifestation of the distance learning educational dialog within the Open University (United Kingdom), including student/student recruitment team interaction (receiving materials), student/tutor interaction (studying), and tutor/student interaction (supporting a student's learning). The Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) blueprint architecture is proposed, and its compatibility with these requirements and challenges is argued. Finally, the paper discusses the applicability of the new blueprint architecture in a wider enterprise setting. (Contains 14 references.) (MES)
