    As Web Services are used more frequently, their evolutionary changes become an increasingly prominent issue. Specifically, one challenge involving service maintenance entails identifying changes and synchronizing those changes with the dependent services. For instance, a service provider may support multiple versions of the same service, and these versions are dependent on common artifacts such as... View full abstract»

    Change impact analysis (CIA) approaches are mostly developed based on the understanding of both system development process and system architecture. It is thus reasonable to assume that if the development process or system architecture is fundamentally different, then CIA approaches must address these differences accordingly. This is particularly relevant in the context of Web systems, given that t... View full abstract»

    Evaluations of website effectiveness have evolved from metrics based on page hits and visits to assessments of the impact of site changes on the behavior of particular user groups. Typically, this involves the use of clustering algorithms to generate behavior-based groupings, followed by profile-based analyses. One weakness of this approach is that resulting groups are often based on aspects of us... View full abstract»

    Regression testing is used by software developers to ensure that program modifications have not negatively impacted the correctness of code. While regression testing has been successfully applied in many domains, programs such as web applications, XML processors, and compilers remain expensive to test because harmless program evolutions make the tests appear to fail: in our experiments 82% of test...

  • Improving Web Application Testing using testability measures

    One of the challenges of testing web applications derives from their dynamic content and structure. As we test a website, we may discover more about its structure and behaviour. This paper proposes a framework for collection of testability measures during the automated testing process (termed `in-testing' measure collection). The measures gathered in this way can take account of dynamic and conten... View full abstract»

    Web Services are evolving all the time. Web Service testing has received significant attention in both functional and non-functional aspects. Robustness has been considered as a crucial feature of Web Service. How to test whether the service is robust enough under its evolution has become a hard problem. OWL-S (Web Ontology Language for Services) is an ontology-based semantic specification of serv... View full abstract»

    Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is a way of designing, developing, deploying, and managing enterprise systems where business needs and technical solutions are closely aligned. Increased return on investment (ROI) is a prime motivating factor for many organizations to migrate their existing systems to ones based on services. This paper details the experience of migrating a traditional Web-based... View full abstract»

    Today, the Web is a place for offering single services and developing service compositions. Increasing number of service providers has introduced the challenge of QoS-aware selection of web service compositions. In such compositions, appropriate web services are selected among several function-equivalent available services. This selection is performed in such a way that the resulting composite web...

    Web applications are the preferred information system platform for many organizations. Some tasks, though, must be done offline, either for connectivity costs and reliability or security constraints. Still, offline work isn't a common feature in Web applications, for it demands a more complex software architecture and a difficult development process. Existing applications are even harder to adapt ... View full abstract»

    Nowadays, companies and home users use websites offering services ranging from web sites up to complex web applications. The ergonomics of these applications often remain unconsidered and the applications turn out to be hard to use. In this paper, a tool is presented to facilitate the examination of usability. Web 2.0 applications in particular are supported, because they are more flexible and req... View full abstract»

    A new way to interact with small devices consists in embedding tiny Web servers, allowing the devices to serve fully-fledged Web applications. When the device needs to keep its users up-to-date of its internal state, the Web application has to use an event publication solution. Several works have recently been conducted in order to evaluate the trade-offs of various Web-based event notification so... View full abstract»

  • Towards automatic clustering of similar pages in web applications

    In this paper, we propose an automatic approach to group web pages that are similar at the content level. The approach uses the Levenshtein string edit distance and Latent Semantic Indexing to compute page dissimilarity and then groups them using iteratively a Graph-Theoretic clustering algorithm. To automate the clustering process a prototype has been implemented and used to assess the proposed a... View full abstract»

    Software systems are hard to understand due to the complexity and the sheer size of the data to be analyzed. Software visualization tools are a great help as they can sum up large quantities of data in dense, meaningful pictures. Traditionally such tools come in the form of desktop applications. Modern web frameworks are about to change this status quo, as building software visualization tools as ... View full abstract»
