Mutex vs Semaphores

Mutex vs. Semaphores – Part 1: Semaphores From Kevin Dankwardt at Linkedin RE: Mutex vs. Semaphores – Part 1: Semaphores: "A significant difference, in many implementations is that a semaphore may be incremented (released as it were sometimes) by a thread of control different from the one that decremented (acquired it). While a mutex must be returned by the thread that obtained it. This difference means that mutexes can have priority inheritance and semaphores can't. Priority inheritance provided the solution to the well known problem that Niall references. The implementation of mutexes and semaphores differ from OS to OS so one must be careful to not hastily confuse implementation with what it means to be a mutex or semaphore. Those terms can mean different things when implementation is considered." - Kevin Dankwardt on Linkedin.

SDLC - Software Development Life Cycle

There are quite a lot of SDLC models and I am STILL WORKING on this section. I will expand and modify this section. Some people prefer to group SDLCs by type (Waterfall, Agile, Rapid Application Development (RAD),... Other thoughts are to list the major players, as I've done herein. There are a lot variations of UP and RUP, so I've lumped them together. I have excluded military development models. Most Models are combinations of pieces of other models, making it difficult to categorize them. This is not an exhaustive list. Some Agile methods are normally used in conjunction with actual Agile SDLC models, such as DSDM, SCRUM and XP.
1] Adaptive Project Framework - Is both traditional and extreme. scope is variable, and within specified time and cost constraints. Adaptive Project Framework Adaptive Project Framework Part 6: Post-Version Review Adaptive Project Framework Chapters 13 & 14 2] build-and-fix - Write some code, then keep modifying it until the buyer is happy. Generally has too many unspecified things to work satisfactorily. Build and Fix is the worst known model. 3] Crystal Methods - An Agile Method Alistair Cockburn developed the Crystal Methods approach 4] Dynamic Software Development Method (DSDM) Applies a framework for RAD and short time frames. DSDM - wikipedia DSDM is the evolution of rapid application development (RAD) - An Agile Method Majority of the requirements can be delivered in a relatively short amount of time. 5] Extreme Programming (XP) - An Agile Method 6] Feature Driven Development (FDD) - Five FDD process activities - An Agile Method 7] Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) Definition and Solutions - CIO The Itil and ITSM Directory So far, I'm having touble seeing this is a true SDLC, as some others believe. I probably need to spend more time reading about ITIL. 8] Joint Application Development (JAD).    a description of JAD    Definition of JAD 9] Lean Software Development (LD) - An Agile Method 10] PRINCE2 - What is PRINCE2? Owned and developed by the UK governement - a structured approach to project management. PRINCE2 - Wikipedia OGC - PRINCE2 11] Rapid Application Development (RAD) - prototype & then create - Iterative RAD is a variation of JAD. 12] Rational Unified Process (RUP) & Unified Process (UP) RUP & UP have apparently borrowed a lot from each other. UP - Unified Process. Use cases are used to capture the functional requirements. 1} Agile Unified Process (AUP)    AUP - wikipedia AUP is a simplified version of RUP. 2} Basic Unified Process (BUP) BUP was donated by IBM to become open source, & became OpenUP 3} Enterprise Unified Process (EUP) 4} Essential Unified Process (EssUP)    EssUP - wikipedia 5} OpenUP - OpenSource lightweight agile version of RUP for Eclipse,    OpenUP - wikipedia 6} Oracle Unified Method (OUM) 7} Rational Unified Process (RUP) (IBM's) - most widely known UP. 8} Rational Unified Process-System Engineering (RUP-SE) - IBM's (bought Rational) RUP for systems engineering (RUP SE). 13] SCRUM - Agile Scrum is an incremental process of software development. 14] Spiral - go back and reiterate - a series of short waterfall cycles - Combination of Linear and Iterative models. Adds risk analysis, and 4gl RAD prototyping to the waterfall model. 15] synchronize-and-stabilize = sync-and-stabilize spiral model with technology for overseeing and managing source code. a majority of development projects follow the sync-and-stabilize approach. Developers sink 'waterfall' in favor of 'sync' Word-of-the-Day: synchronize-and-stabilize 16] Tailored SDLC models - find a model that is close to your needs and modify it for your own needs. 17] TenStep Project Management Process - Should you avoid this methodology? 18] Waterfall - (Linear - Traditional - the original SDLC). output of each stage becomes the input for the next stage. More Waterfall information A] Fountain - considerable overlap of activities throughout the development cycle. Fountain is Waterfall model with iterative steps. Fountain is considered far superior to the strict Waterfall model, so I've not made it a sub-model of the Waterfall model. The fountain model and its impact on project schedule Software Life Cycle Model - MANY References Topic 13: The Software Development Process - Fountain is NEAR THE BOTTOM Developers sink 'waterfall' in favor of 'sync' B] V-Model - extension of the waterfall model C] Dual Vee Model - recognizes that there are two types of maturation in system development. D] Structured Systems Analysis & Design Method (SSADM) SSADM is a Waterfall model Still Older SDLCS Include: 1] Top-Down See also: Top-Down for more Top-Down information 2] Bottom-Up See also: Bottom-Up for more Bottom-Up information SDLC PHASES (Typical): TO BE REVISED... Different SDLC models may have more or fewer phases, and the order may differ; phases may be repeated.

UML Summary

Unified Modeling Language (UML) Dictionary Collaboration Diagram - In UML this diagram shows the same information as the Sequence Diagram does, but in a different form. Sequence Diagram - in UML, this digram shows actors across the top, owning columns of space, and interactions as arrows between columns, with time flowing down the page. It is useful when showing one scenario graphically. Use Case Diagram - in UML, this diagram shows the external actors, the system boundary, the use cases as ellipses, and arrows connecting sctors to ellipses or ellipses to ellipses. It is primarily useful as a Context Diagram and table of contents.
