    The following paper proposes a structured, natural language specification of web service behavior based on keywords in context. The advantage of this type of document is that it can be automatically analyzed in order to extract test cases for testing the web service. The test cases define not only what to test, i.e. what operations to invoke in what order, but also how to test, i.e. with what test... View full abstract»

    The distributed nature of service-oriented architectures imposes some very interesting challenges to the participants of a service system, i.e., the provider and the client. For example, the service may change in a way that no longer satisfies the client's needs, either due to its reduced offered functionality or quality, due to its reduced availability or due to its increased price. In this case,... View full abstract»

  • About the necessity to change the perspective for mobile web services

    Publication Year: 2013, Page(s):25 - 29
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (299 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The use of Web Services in modern software development is widely accepted and provides (integrated in an according architecture) a fast, flexible and scalable way for the implementation of modern software products. On the other hand, the development of mobile applications, so called apps, becomes more and more important. While using Web Services also from mobile devices is an already accepted sche...

    In the last twenty years, the evolution of web systems has been driven along three dimensions: the processes used to develop, evolve, maintain and re-engineer the systems themselves; the end products (the pages, content and links) of such processes; and finally the people dimension, with the extraordinary shift in how developers and users shape, interact and maintain the code and content that they...

    Over the last fifteen years, Web applications have evolved from the early simple and hyper-text based ones into the more complex, interactive, usable and adaptive applications of the new generations. New paradigms, architectures, and technologies for developing Web-based systems continuously emerge and transform this specific context. At the same time, new techniques and tools for effectively test... View full abstract»

    Web applications evolve at a very fast rate, to accommodate new functionalities, presentation styles and interaction modes. The test artefacts developed during web testing must be evolved accordingly. Among the other causes, one critical reason why test cases need maintenance during web evolution is that the locators used to uniquely identify the page elements under test may fail or may behave inc...

    Publication Year: 2013, Page(s):45 - 50
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1057 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Reverse engineering is usually used to recover missing and up to date models of a software system to support its comprehension when changes are required to maintain or evolve it. Model driven engineering approaches have been recently proposed to develop more quickly web applications with a high design quality and maintainability. Integrating reverse engineering techniques with model driven web eng... View full abstract»

    Although in principle two independent technologies, cloud computing is closely associated with the web in contemporary web applications. Such applications, usually developed using web frameworks, are increasingly often deployed on servers that reside in cloud to gain commonly assumed benefits from the cloud infrastructure. These benefits include scalability and elasticity, which liberates the deve... View full abstract»

    Web applications (WAs) developed by companies are usually adapted to cover new business rules due to continuous changes in the organization requirements. Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) come to the scene to give a solution to these continuous changes providing a way to align business rules with underlying services. This is why there is a current trend to migrate legacy web applications to new... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (497 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we explore the characteristics of change categories in three evolving web systems. We examine those changes from the perspectives of three maintenance categories (adaptive, corrective and perfective) and the influence of a `ripple' effect as a result of those changes. All three systems were developed by a software development company based in London. Results showed that the ripple e... View full abstract»

    Web applications allow business to offer services or products to numerous users with different culture, context, and needs. There are situations where applications must adapt to unforeseen and temporary business requirements, such as a one-off market campaign to launch a new product, beta features for engaging users, or disaster solidarity features that remain in the application for a period of ti...

    Web systems evolved in the last years starting from static websites to Web applications, up to Ajax-based Rich Internet Applications (RIAs). Reverse Engineering techniques followed the same evolution, too. The authors and many other WSE contributors proposed a lot of innovative and effective ideas providing important advances in the reverse engineering field. In this paper, we will show the histor...

    The number and type of mobile platforms is increasing. Each platform has a specific set of native functionalities (i.e., camera, compass) and provides a specific framework to implement mobile applications exploiting these functionalities. The new features offered by HTMLS together with the PhoneGap framework let the web be a potential candidate for multi-platform mobile development. However, progr... View full abstract»

  • Migrating to service-oriented systems (Why and how to avoid developing customized software applications from scratch)

    Publication Year: 2013, Page(s):91 - 96
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (215 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper presents a case for using standard services rather than developing one's own customized nuts and bolts software. It illustrates the size and complexity of object-oriented applications and defines what it costs to maintain them. The increasing maintenance burden is the main cause of the personnel shortage in many developed countries. The point is made that users cannot go on producing mo... View full abstract»

    The web offers a ubiquitous platform for commercial and information-sharing activities, which are realized by a broad spectrum of web systems. Not surprisingly, triggered by lawsuits, many legal aspects impacting web systems have emerged over time and they should be a concern for web systems operators, users and researchers. This paper identifies prominent legal issues relating to web systems acce... View full abstract»

    The architecture of a Web system affects many of its quality attributes, such as testability, security, and accessibility. The architecture itself is influenced by factors such as system requirements, infrastructure constraints, and interoperability needs. This session is the fifth in a series of special events held at WSE focused on selected aspects of research directions in Web systems evolution... View full abstract»
