Tasks

Developed a unique JavaEE web application GreenDesk for analysing and tracking the complex data and documentation required for preparing applications compliant with the Green Star Office sustainable building rating system of the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA).

The system uses Expert System technology in Java as an intermediary between rich interactive web user interface worksheets and model views using JavaServer Faces (JSF), and an underlying Enterprise Java domain entity database model - the Building Project Model, created using Parsing Analysis technology to map the Green Star Office specifications to domain model elements and rules.

After initially using an MySQL database with object-relational Java Persistence API (JPA) mapping with EclipseLink, then an object-relational Oracle DB with EclipseLink, a major migration was made to a JPA-compliant pure-object database ObjectDB, with significant improvements.

The PrimeFaces toolkit for JavaServer Faces (JSF) was used to enhance the rich web user interface.

The software engineering included frequent use of graphical Unified Modeling Language (UML) for requirements and domain analysis, model-driven Java design, Java code refactoring, documentation, and even proved useful for freestyle graphics presentations for non-experts. The closely related Systems Modeling Language (SysML) heavily influenced the Building Project domain model.

Custom object-oriented PHP scripting was used to generate Enterprise Java database entity classes directly from a Drupal CMS web site entity-relational database model of the Green Star Office technical manual’s specification for the green office building rating system of the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA). Such novel and advanced automation of coding is a speciality of Webel IT Australia.

Drupal CMS web site development: Developed a GreenSoft company web site, a web site for the GreenDesk product, and the GreenBase site for resources on global environmental rating schemes.

Prepared investor presentations and held pitch meeting demonstrations for potential investors. Demonstrations included screencast tutorial videos made using ScreenFlow.

Created 3D logos and animated 3D logos using Swift3D.

Tasks

Performed domain analysis using UML Parsing Analysis (sentence-by-sentence mapping of technical text to UML relational and graphical models) of the Green Star Office v3 rating tool spreadsheets into an entity-relationship model and object-relational database representation, using a SysML-like model of domain elements: blocks, attributes, value types, quantities, parts, activities.

Developed a PHP-driven Drupal content management system as a Project Tracking CMS, including a relational parsing analysis of the GBCA Green Star Office v3 rating tool spreadsheets into a cross-navigable domain analysis entity-relationship model. Includes a representation of the credit groups of the Green Star process as activities allocated to human resources.

Performed demonstrations of the developmental ecoSmart web application concept to stakeholders, candidate users, and investors.

NEW: UML Parsing Analysis demo based on the recently released UML2.3 and SysML1.2 specifications

Dr Darren is delighted to announce a super new online resource, a sentence-by-sentence UML™ Parsing Analysis of (some of) the latest Unified Modeling Language™ (UML™) and Systems Modeling Language (SysML) specifications from the Object Management Group™ (OMG™). Drupal™ CMS technology is used to represent the metaclasses and stereotypes and related documentation in massively hyperlinked and richly cross-referenced form:

Every sentence of these crucial, complex specs could have its own web page with illustrative, educational diagrams and its own analysis comment trail, linked where applicable to OMG issue tracking. It's a vision to behold for UML™ and SysML fans, brought to you by Webel.

SysML1.2 specification overview using hyperlinked SysML Parsing Analysis [ARCHIVAL]

The content or the technology discussed here is HISTORICAL or ARCHIVAL
The content or the methodology here is OBSOLETE !
Aug 2016: The SysML 1.5 Revision Task Force is in process. SysML has undergone significant changes since SysML1.2 !

This Webel reference and tutorial zone employs the UML™ Parsing Analysis recipe developed by Dr Darren Kelly, which technique exploits graphical and logical «wrapper» Components to relate text "snippets" from technical documents - in this case the OMG's SysML1.2 specification (with change bars) and - to (in this case) SysML model elements.

Please note that the SysML specification does not include the UML Component; the use of «wrapper» Components (which is supported in some tools, such as the SysML Plugin for MagicDraw™ UML) therefore goes beyond official SysML.

The (still incomplete) online trail is structured precisely after the SysML1.2 specification.

All SysML specification text appearing in this online reference trail is quoted, with permission, for educational and conformance analysis purposes only, and to permit convenient web page referencing under Dr Darren Kelly's UML™ Parsing Analysis recipe, and such quoted text remains © Copyright Object Management Group™ (OMG™).

Webel IT Australia maintains © Copyright in all additional UML™ Parsing Analysis models and diagrams of quoted specification text.
