Retrieval as Synthesis: Feature-Based Retrieval and Adaptation Architectures

Perry Alexander, Cindy Kong, and Brandon Morel

One mechanism for achieving efficient component synthesis is retrieval and adaptation of existing solutions and architectures. This paper outlines two techniques, feature-based retrieval and adaptation architectures, that that support this synthesis technique. Feature-based retrieval is a cue-based reasoning derivative used to efficiently retrieve potential solutions from a component database. Adaptation architectures are small architectures used to efficiently package components for reused in a black-box fashion. Together these techniques provide an effective, rigorous synthesis technique for component-based systems.
