    Performance engineering for informational and transactional distributed systems must take into account both the development and runtime information about the target system and its environment. At development time, the architects have to choose from many architecture styles and consider all performance requirements across a multitude of workload. At runtime, an Autonomic Manager has to compensate f... View full abstract»

    For better or worse, the web browser has become a widely used target platform for software applications. In the era of web-based software, the web browser will serve as the primary user interface for end-user applications. In this paper, we introduce the Lively Dock, a user interface mechanism that can be used to host miniaturized yet active web applications in a web browser. The system is built a...

    When considering the jobs market, changes or recurring trends for skilled employees expressed by employers' needs have a tremendous impact on the evolution of website content. On-line jobs sites adverts, academic institutions and professional development “standard bodies” all share those needs as their common driver for contents evolution. This paper aims, on one hand, to discuss and... View full abstract»

    On the web, static pages fade into the past; web sites use server and client-side scripting techniques to improve the user experience. For client-side scripting, JavaScript is by far the most commonly used dynamic language. In these scripts, regular expressions are widely used for several purposes, e.g., for text filtering and form validation. In this paper, we take a closer look at regular expres...

    Nowadays, we are assisting to a paradigmatic shift for the development of web applications due to the pervasive distribution of their components among a lot of servers, which are dynamically interconnected by web links. As a consequence, the application logic is often defined by exploiting workflow languages since they are more suitable to address the complexity of these new running environments. ...

    A service-oriented application is composed of multiple web services to fulfill complex functionality that cannot be provided by individual web service. The combination of services is not random. In many cases, a set of services are repetitively used together in various applications. We treat such a set of services as a service composition pattern. The quality of the patterns is desirable due to th... View full abstract»

    We investigated the distribution of malware on websites by constructing web honeypots carrying vulnerable web applications. With the diffusion of web services caused by the appearance of a new architecture known as cloud computing, a large number of websites have been used by attackers as hopping sites to attack other websites and user terminals. To construct hopping sites, many attackers force vi... View full abstract»

    Homograph attacks are a very common type of security vulnerability on the Web. The attack aims to hide the domain name origin by switching some letters in the URL. As the Web evolves beyond the traditional base of English-speaking users, this kind of threat will increase significantly with the use of non-Latin scripts in the entire domain name. The recent introduction of Internationalized Domain N... View full abstract»

    Much research in recent years has focused on the evaluation of web site quality. The majority of this research has focused on evaluating the quality of individual pages or that of a site as a whole. In this paper, we propose an evaluation approach that combines evaluations at the page level with the one of the web site by means of a page-importance weighing model. We illustrate our approach with t... View full abstract»

    This paper presents an automatic approach built on information retrieval and clustering techniques to enhance the navigation capabilities of modern Web Content Management Systems (WCMSs). The approach uses Latent Semantic Indexing to discover correlations between the contents published through these systems, and a fuzzy clustering algorithm to form groups of related contents. For each page of the ... View full abstract»
