Concerning the technologies, the workshop focused on Java-related technologies. It was an opportunity to present and observe the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas. All papers submitted to this workshop were reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee. Acceptance was based primarily on the originality and contribution. We selected for these postworkshop proceedings 16 papers amongst 33 submitted, two tutorials, and two keynotes. FIDJI 2002 was aimed at promoting a scienti?c approach to software engin- ring. The scope of the workshop included the following topics: design of distributed Java applications Java-related technologies software and system architecture engineering and development methodo- gies development methodologies for UML development methodologies for reliable distributed systems component-based development methodologies management of evolutions/iterations in the analysis, design, implementation, and test phases dependability support during system lifecycle managing inconsistencies during application development atomicity and exception handling in system development software architectures, frameworks, and design patterns for developing d- tributed systems integration of formal techniques in the development process formal analysis and grounding of modeling notation and techniques (e. g.
