Let's see what Ripple-Trac can do for you.
Ripple-Trac is a radical technology that has the ability to identify, encapsulate, and manipulate those parts of legacy software and z/OS system components that are relevant to a particular concern (concept, goal, purpose, etc.).
Concerns are the primary motivation for organizing and decomposing software into manageable and comprehensible parts. Many kinds of concerns may be relevant to different developers in different roles, or at different stages of the software evolution.
RIPPLE-TRAC technology falls into the realm of multi-dimensional separation of concerns (MDSOC). It allows flexible and incremental separation, modularization, and integration of software artifacts based on any number of concerns REGARDLESS OF LANGUAGE.
It overcomes limitations of existing mechanisms by permitting clean separation of multiple, potentially overlapping and interacting concerns simultaneously. RIPPLE-TRAC promotes reuse, improves comprehension, reduces the impact of change, eases maintenance and evolution, improves traceability, and opens the door to system refactoring and reengineering especially at a time when
First, an explanation of how to use the Architectural Assessment Plex.
The active Thought appears in the center of the Plex and is the current focus. Any items attached to the Thought are described in the Thought tab and any notes appear in the Notes tab below the thoughts. When you click a Thought it moves to the center of the Plex and it becomes the active Thought.
The area at the top of the Plex, functions like a bulletin board or “thumbtack” . These quick-access shortcuts to Thoughts are called “pins.” No matter where you are in the Plex, the pins remain visible.
The area at the bottom of the Plex, keeps a running “breadcrumb” trail of your Thoughts based on activation. Clicking on any Thought in the Past Thought List activates that Thought.
Thoughts in the Plex have three circular “gates,” each of which is used to link a specific type of relation: The parent gate is above a Thought, the child gate is below it, and the jump gate is beside it. A gate is hollow when there are no links attached to it, and solid when one or more links are attached. Gates are highlighted in green when there are other Thoughts linked to them that are not currently visible.
