    Cisco's VLAN Trunk Protocol reduces administration in a switched network. Not much research has been pursued in addressing in-depth complexities of VTP. VTP encounters intricate situations first, when we try to insert a VTP client or server with higher config revision number and second, when we insert a switch with different VTP domain name. Solutions to both of these issues involve considerable m... View full abstract»

    A standards-based, open-source middleware system was designed and implemented to facilitate the analysis of large and disparate datasets. This system makes it possible to access several different types of database servers simultaneously, browse remote data, combine datasets, and join tables from remote databases independent of vendor. The system uses an algorithm known as Dynamic Merge Cache to ha... View full abstract»

    Coupling is a well researched topic in the Object-Oriented (OO) research community and its influence on class cohesion is well understood. In this paper, we present an empirical study exploring the effect of method calling on class cohesion using two coupling metrics, namely fan-in and fan-out. Three Java, open-source systems (OSS) were used as a basis of the study. A small number of classes were ... View full abstract»

    Evidence shows that proposals for new modeling notations emerge and evolution of current ones are becoming more complex, often in an attempt to satisfy the many different modeling perspectives required by each stakeholder. This paper presents a method to identify the specific notation construct requirements, at multiple levels of abstraction, which satisfy the needs of a stakeholder when performin...

    Nowadays, software product line is an approach to reduce costs of software development, decrease time to market, and increase capabilities of reuse in designing and exploiting software development processes. Moreover, other quality attributes of the project domain should be considered to enhance quality of the product. Meanwhile, taking advantage of software product line makes developers capable o...

    In recent years, the Internet-based commerce has been widely developing with enhancement convenience of trading on the web. On the other hands, a lot of troubles on trading also increase. This paper proposes a new evaluation mechanism to decrease the information incompleteness and asymmetry by using multi-attribute evaluation. Buyers can evaluate due to the multiple criteria chosen by sellers. Bas... View full abstract»

    Secure Electronic Transaction (SET) protocol was developed by Visa and MasterCard as a method to protect the security of payment card transactions over open networks, but it failed to be widely promoted. Based on our research about Secure Electronic Transaction (SET) protocol, we designed and implemented a suite of e-commerce system which was improved from Secure Electronic Transaction (SET) proto...

    This paper presents an operational semantics for ASSL (Autonomic System Specification Language). ASSL is a promising new formal language dedicated to the development of systems exploiting the benefits of autonomic computing, a highly-regarded technique in the development of self-managing complex systems which draws inspiration from the mammalian autonomic nervous system. The formal semantics defin... View full abstract»

    Today embedded software is widely used. As the complexity of embedded systems grows, the number of tasks performed by embedded software is increasing. These tasks must communicate with each other to achieve synchronization. And therefore, the growing complexity of communications is making it increasingly difficult to program and debug these tasks. To confirm the correctness of embedded software, t... View full abstract»

    The General Intensional Programming System (GIPSY) has been built around the Lucid family of intensional programming languages that rely on the higher-order intensional logic (HOIL) to provide context-oriented multidimensional reasoning of intensional expressions. HOIL combines functional programming with various intensional logics to allow explicit context expressions to be evaluated as first-cla... View full abstract»
