Precisely Analyzing Loss in Interface Adapter Chains

interface adaptation, adapter chaining, component reuse


Interface adaptation allows code written for one interface to be used with a software component with another interface. When multiple adapters are chained together to make certain adaptations possible, we need a way to analyze how well the adaptation is done in case there are more than one chains that can be used. We introduce an approach to precisely analyzing the loss in an interface adapter chain using a simple form of abstract interpretation, which can form the mathematical basis of an interface adaptation system.
