A Design Level Optimization Approach for Functional Paradigm Software Designs Considering Low Resource Devices Development


Objectives: The main objective of this paper is to identify suitable programming concepts from Functional Programming paradigm concerning low resource devices development and eventually contribute an approach for design level optimization. Methods: Experiments have been conducted, CPU time and memory consumptions (Private Bytes) were measured. Findings: The research results indicated that Pattern Matching, Lazy, Curried, Tail Recursion, Functional Composition, Referential Transparency and Higher Order Functions with functions as parameters concepts consumed less CPU and memory resources compared to their alternative concepts. This paper suggests that the above mentioned concepts can be applied by any software engineering practitioners in designing resource efficient constructs for software applications. Applications: Using these guidelines substantial performance growth can be formed and at the same time, performance degradation issues can be easily avoided. Eventually, this paper contributes a way to optimize the Functional Programming design at design level
Keywords: Functional Programming, Optimization, Programming Paradigms, Software Design Level Optimization and Mobile Computing
