    This paper proposes a model of execution platform for the OMG request of a generic Platform- Independent-Model (PIM) allowing realization of the Model Driven Architecture (MDA) standard. We propose AMDA (Automata based MDA), a method based on the use of parallel automata, which can be a common tool for building a PIM from UML diagrams (including OCL) and transforming the PIM to PSM automata and fu...

    Object oriented analysis suggests semiformal use case driven techniques for problem domain modeling from a computation independent viewpoint. The proposed approach called Topological Functioning Modeling for Model Driven Architecture (TFM4MDA) increases the degree of formalization. It uses mathematical foundations of Topological Functioning Model (TFM) that holistically represents complete functio... View full abstract»

    One of the principles of the agile development methodology is to "welcome changing requirements even late in development". Refactoring is a major technique used to cope with changes. It enables to reorganize code while preserving the external behavior. Several refactorings can be performed automatically. Aspect oriented programming (AOP) is a powerful technology that greatly improves programmer's ... View full abstract»

    Object Relational Database Management Systems model set of interrelated objects using references and collection attributes. The static metrics capture the internal quality of the database schema at the class -level during design time. Complex databases like ORDB exhibit dynamism during runtime and hence require performance-level monitoring. This is achieved by measuring the access and invocations ... View full abstract»

    In recent years, Aspect Oriented Programming (AOP) has emerged as a promising model for modularizing large and complex programs, advancing towards wider acceptance for mainstream commercial development. The use of AOP techniques for developing commercial applications poses, however, a number of challenges - especially when such applications are composed of large numbers of binary components contai...

    We present the design and implementation of two garbage collectors for TINYSTORE. TINYSTORE is a persistent flash-based transactional memory-management system for Java Cards. One collector is a stop-the-world collector with a traversal ordering that is particularly efficient on flash memories. The second is an incremental garbage collector that prevents long garbage-collection pauses. View full abstract»

    Arts'Codes method is an executable Visual Programming Language for real-time application's development. It emerged from cognitive skills and realtime system researches. On one hand, it molds the software design according the natural cognitive skills, without deteriorating execution performance. On the other hand, it proposed also a robust execution platform which takes into account only dry techni... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (197 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The success of software projects has many different facets: meeting user requirements, being developed within given budget and time constraints, and actually being used. We focus on one of them: the pattern of adoption by users, and its possible relationship with continued development. This is done based on readily available data for open source projects, namely their releases and downloads. Rathe... View full abstract»

    This paper addresses time management in software development processes. The rationale for this investigation stems from the observation that many of the problems associated with software projects, such as planning, time pressure and late deliveries, are time related. The analysis presented is based both on a literature review and on illustrations of data taken from our research on different softwa... View full abstract»

    Code inspection is considered an efficient method for detecting faults in software code documents. The number of faults not detected by inspection should be small. Several methods have been suggested for estimating the number of undetected faults. These methods include the fault injection method that is considered to be quite laborious, capture recapture methods that avoid the problems of code inj... View full abstract»

    In the early stages of system development, many requirements interdependencies exist. Interacting requirements may conflict with one another and they may impact (change, enhance, or override) other requirements as well. Those interdependencies should be identified as early as possible in the development lifecycle. Conflicts should be resolved, so as to avoid the cost and schedule overhead that com...

    Nowadays, technology enables museums to become "active". Shortly, museum visitors will be equipped with smart personal devices and the museum environment will be able to interact proactively with them, offering them various services. Visitors often tend to visit museums in groups, mainly with family or friends, yet most of today mobile museum guides focus on supporting the individual visitor. Curr... View full abstract»

    Search Engines are so powerful that they create the expectation that search will always succeed. But interactive search is a complex activity with significant human involvement, and very difficult to automate. A Steering Wheel software architecture is proposed to automate search, based upon composable and reusable entities called ScanObjects. This architecture keeps intact the search engine power,...

    Two software system lifecycle development paradigms have been competing on the minds and hearts of software developers and executives: The traditional Object-Oriented approach and the emerging Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) or SO Development of Application (SODA). While OO puts objects and their encapsulated behavior at the center stage, emphasizing primarily rigid structure, SODA hails servi... View full abstract»
