    Change effort estimation is needed not only in software maintenance phase, but also in the software development phase. Many techniques have been developed to estimate required change effort for a particular change request. One of these techniques is impact analysis. One main challenge of this technique from a software development perspective is that the existence of inconsistent states of some sof... View full abstract»

  • Smart fuzzing method for detecting stack-based buffer overflow in binary codes

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):96 - 107

    During the past decades several methods have been proposed to detect the stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability, though it is still a serious threat to the computer systems. Among the suggested methods, various fuzzers have been proposed to detect this vulnerability. However, many of them are not smart enough to have high code-coverage and detect vulnerabilities in feasible execution paths of t... View full abstract»

  • Improving semantic compression specification in large relational database

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):108 - 115

    The large-scale relational databases normally have a large size and a high degree of sparsity. This has made database compression very important to improve the performance and save storage space. Using standard compression techniques (syntactic) such as Gzip or Zip does not take advantage of the relational properties, as these techniques do not look at the nature of the data. Since semantic compre... View full abstract»

  • Lightweight approach for multi-objective web service composition

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):116 - 124

    Service composition is an efficient way to implement a service of complex business process in heterogeneous environment. Existing service selection methods mainly utilise fitness function or constraint technique to convert multiple objectives service composition problems to single objective ones. These methods need to take effect with priori knowledge of problem's solution space. Besides, in each ... View full abstract»
