    In this paper, we investigate the barcode OSS using two of Weiser's original slice-based metrics (tightness and overlap) as a basis, complemented with fault data extracted from multiple versions of the same system. We compared the values of the metrics in functions with at least one reported fault with fault-free modules to determine a) whether significant differences in the two metrics would be o...

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (270 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We present a framework for quality evaluation of open source components adapted to the context of software product lines. The evaluation is done in the context of commercial projects developing multiple solutions that utilise OSS components. The projects need to decide which open source components can be reused for a specific purpose, or whether it is better to develop the needed functionality in-... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (4)  |  Patents (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1490 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    BPEL is the de facto standard for business process modeling in today's enterprises and is a promising candidate for the integration of business and scientific applications that run in Grid or Cloud environments. In these distributed infrastructures, the occurrence of faults is quite likely. Without sophisticated fault handling, workflows are frequently abandoned due to software or hardware failure...

    Business processes are usually modeled using graphical notations such as BPMN. As a first step towards execution as workflow, a business process is transformed to an abstract WS-BPEL process. Technical details required for execution are added by an IT expert. While IT experts expect Java-like syntax for programs, WS-BPEL requires processes to be expressed in XML. This paper introduces BPELscript a... View full abstract»

  • Bridging the Component-Based and Service-Oriented Worlds

    Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):47 - 54
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (532 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The component-based and service-oriented development have become commonly used techniques for building high quality, evolvable, large systems in a timely and affordable manner. In heterogeneous software systems, both approaches can coexist and complement each other. In this setting, interoperability is one the essential issues, since it enables composition of diverse components and services.In the... View full abstract»

    Creating exercises for learners requires significant time. This is one reason, beside difficulties of discussing individualized tasks in a classroom setting, why often only few exercises are created and posed to all learners alike. In Web-based autonomous learning the setting problem is removed, while simultaneously demand for individualized exercises, comparable to adaptive learning material, inc... View full abstract»

    In distributed teams information on each other's whereabouts is an important prerequisite for efficient communication, coordination, and cooperation. In this paper we present LocaRhythms-a novel approach for continuous detection and prediction of users' stays. This is achieved by continuous capturing of position data, by real-time data mining with an innovative combination of machine learning algo... View full abstract»

    Many collaboration platforms are realized as service-oriented systems enabling flexible compositions of services and support of interactions. Interactions between entities in such systems do not only span software services, but also human actors. A mixed service-oriented system is therefore composed of human and software services. In open environments, interactions between people and services are ... View full abstract»

    The evolution of the World Wide Web has progressed from simple, classic Web pages with text and static images only to Web 2.0 pages with rich multimedia content, mashups and desktop-style applications. The cornerstone of Web 2.0 technologies is an API called XMLHttpRequest - an interface that allows network requests to be performed asynchronously without blocking the user interface of the Web brow...

    The high number of unsuccessful IT projects, due to the inconsistent and ambiguous requirements specifications, justifies the proposal of new socio-technical approaches to overcome these software quality issues. To address these problems it is required a platform that simultaneously enforces Requirements Engineering best practices, fosters stakeholders' participation, and supports requirements neg...

  • Feature Diagrams and their Transformations: An Extensible Meta-model

    Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):97 - 104
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (483 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Feature models represent the variability and commonality of software product lines and permit the configuration of each specific application to be selected. We use a hypergraph based formalism to define an extensible and comprehensive feature meta-model. As a result, we readily can build a set of modeling tools compatible with the different flavors of these diagrams. Finally, automatic transformat... View full abstract»

    We propose a software engineering process to aid the development of dynamic software architectures (DSAs). This process is based on the sequential application of a number of formal methods and tools, and it can support software architects throughout the design, analysis and code generation of software systems. To illustrate the process, we apply it to an industrial case study from the service orie... View full abstract»

    Model driven development (MDD) is a software engineering practice that is gaining in popularity. We aim to investigate to what extend it is effective. There is a lack of empirical data to verify the pay-offs of employing MDD tools and techniques. In order to increase the knowledge we have of the impact of MDD in large scale industrial projects, we investigate the project characteristics of a large... View full abstract»
