1. Ramdoyal, Ravi. Reverse Engineering User-Drawn Form-Based Interfaces for Interactive Database Conceptual Analysis.

Degree: 2010, DIAL (Belgium)

The first step of most database design methodologies consists in eliciting part of the user requirements from various sources such as user interviews and corporate documents. These requirements are formalised into a conceptual schema of the application domain, that has proved difficult to validate, especially since the graphical representations of data models have shown understandability limitations from the end-users standpoint. On the other hand, electronic forms seem to be more natural and intuitive to express data requirements for laymen. Besides, the necessity to associate end-users of a future system with its specification and development steps has long been advocated. In this doctoral research, we consequently explore the possible reverse engineering of user-drawn form-based interfaces to perform an interactive database conceptual analysis, and subsequently present the tool-supported RAINBOW approach resulting from this investigation. This user-oriented approach relies on the adaptation and integration of principles and techniques coming from various fields of study, ranging from Database Forward and Reverse Engineering to Prototyping and Participatory Design.

La première étape de la plupart des méthodologies de développement de bases de données se concentre notamment sur l'élicitation des besoins des utilisateurs, à partir de sources diverses telles que des interviews et de la documentation existante. Ces besoins sont formalisés par le biais d'un schéma conceptuel représentant le domaine d'application. En pratique, la validation de tels schémas s'avère difficile, étant donné que la compréhension de leur formalisme, même à l'aide de représentations graphiques, est loin d'être triviale. Parallèlement, il apparait que les formulaires électroniques semblent plus naturels et intuitifs pour permettre l'expression de tels besoins par des non experts. Par ailleurs, l'implication des utilisateurs finaux dans la spécification et le développement d'un futur système fait désormais partie des bonnes pratiques de l'Ingénierie Logicielle. Dans cette recherche doctorale, nous explorons dès lors la possible rétro-ingénierie d'interfaces de type formulaire dessinées par des utilisateurs finaux, afin de permettre une analyse conceptuelle interactive. Le résultat de cette investigation est l'établissement de l'approche RAINBOW et de son support logiciel. Cette approche orientée utilisateur se base sur l'adaptation et l'intégration de principes et de techniques provenant de diverses disciplines, notamment l'Ingénierie et la Rétro-ingénierie des Bases de Données, le Prototypage et le Design Collaboratif.
