People at TecO: Martin Gaedke
As a research associate at the University of Karlsruhe I am leading the research group IT-Management and Web Engineering at the Institute of Telematics. Besides, I am responsible for projects and activities related to Web Engineering at the Telecooperation Office (TecO), a know-how transfer group, of the Institute of Telematics. I obtained a PhD in Engineering in July 2000 and Master's degree in computer science in May 1997 both from the University of Karlsruhe in Germany.

TecO Responsibilities
HP's E-Victor Procurement Portal. I am technical lead in a collaborative project with the service center at Hewlett-Packard. In the Project "VICTOR", we are investigating component-based web engineering (CBWE) for large-scale Web Sites. The WebComposition-approach has been used for over three years to evolve the world-wide E-Victor Procurement Portal. Using WebComposition's component-technology (WCML) and other component-tecchnologies, I try to apply my ideas for Development and Evolution of Web Sites. For further information on the Victor Project, click here.

Research Interest
There is a list of my publications Web Engineering. My Research interest is in application of software engineering practice to applications in the WWW (Web Engineering or WebE), and specifically in component-based software engineering, reuse, frameworks, reflection, software architectures, patterns and software evolution for Web-Applications.
Further, I investigate Knowledge Management Systems and User-Profiling techniques, particularly in E-Commerce and Web Information Systems.

WebComposition Approach. This approach defines a disciplined procedure of composing Web-applications with components. It is a synthesis of a dedicated component-technology, reuse management, a dedicated Web-Application framework, and a component-oriented process model.
I began the WebComposition Markup Language (WCML) project in 1997. WCML describes an XML vocabulary for the WebComposition approach that allows definition of (Web-) components, properties, and relationships between these components. The WCML provides a generic mechanism facilitating compositional reuse. Distributed Components (nested in Virtual Component Stores) can be used to design and implement a Web-Application. The components may e.g. model high-level design concepts, like design pattern or OOHDM classes. For more information on my research, click here.
You can read more about our work on the WebComposition Reuse-Repository project in a position paper presented at the Web Engineering workshop at WWW8. Further Information about the Evolutionbus Framework and the WebComposition Process Model is available via publications.

Evolutionbus. The evolutionsbus framework is part of the WebComposition approach. We are currently investigating the use of the Evolutionbus Infrastructure Server to develop highly-distributed Web-Applications, like federated Portals and Marketplaces, as well as service delivery based on different business scenarios.

Applications for Mobile Devices. If I am not too busy, I explore distributed applications for handheld devices / mobile devices. Some results can be found here.
