  • Probabilistic Quality Models to Improve Communication and Actionability

    Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):1 - 4
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (183 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We need to aggregate metric values to make quality assessment actionable. However, due to properties of metric values, i.e., unknown distributions and different measurement scales, they are difficult to aggregate. We present and evaluate a method to aggregate metric values based on observed numerical distributions that are converted into cumulative density functions. We use these to determine the ...

  • Data Mining Methods and Cost Estimation Models: Why is it So Hard to Infuse New Ideas?

    Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):5 - 9
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (233 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Infusing new technologies and methods is hard and can often be described as "banging ones head on a brick wall". The is especially true when trying to get project managers, systems, engineers and cost analysts to add a radically new tool to their tool box. In this paper we suggest that the underlying causes are rooted in the fact that the different players have fundamental differences in mental mo... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (131 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Software development analytics plays an important role in bridging the gap between purely process-centric software development management and the on-ground realities resulting from the inherent complexities of software development. Lack of high-fidelity data, potential data manipulation by humans, absence of real-time / near real-time analysis and sub-optimal insights design causes issues in gover... View full abstract»

    There are many algorithms for data classification such as C4.5, Naive Bayes, etc. Are these enough for learning actionable analytics? Or should we be supporting another kind of reasoning? This paper explores two approaches for learning minimal, yet effective, changes to software project artifacts. View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (271 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Software project management is a decision intensive process. Success or failure of the project is highly dependent on these decisions. Analytical techniques and tools can support project managers throughout the software project life cycle by increasing the predictability and chance of success in these projects. In this paper, we report the results of a systematic mapping study within which we inve... View full abstract»

  • A Method to Evaluate Estimates Produced by the Capture-Recapture Model

    Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):22 - 27
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (755 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The capture-recapture techniques could be used for post-inspection estimation of residual defects in the inspected software artifacts. However, adoption this approach in real world software inspections may still face several challenges. On one hand, most of the capture-recapture estimators could easily produce extreme estimates on residual defects, on the other, there are very limited studies on t... View full abstract»

  • Empirical Analysis on Parallel Tasks in Crowdsourcing Software Development

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (275 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Crowdsourcing has become a popular option for rapid acquisition, with reported benefits such as shortened schedule due to mass parallel development, innovative solutions based on the "wisdom of crowds", and reduced cost due to the pre-pricing and bidding effects. However, most of existing studies on software crowdsourcing are focusing on individual task level, providing limited insights on the pra... View full abstract»

  • Extending Manual GUI Testing Beyond Defects by Building Mental Models of Software Behavior

    Manual GUI testing involves providing inputs to the software via its GUI and determining the software's correctness using its outputs, one of them being the GUI itself. Because of its human-in-the-loop nature, GUI testing is known to be a time-consuming activity. In practice, it is done by junior, inexpensive testers to keep costs low at the very tail-end of the software development process. In th... View full abstract»

    It is increasingly important to assess and ensure the correct behaviour of mobile applications as their importance in everyday life keeps increasing. This paper presents an automatic testing approach combining reverse engineering with testing. The algorithm tries to identify existing User Interface (UI) patterns on a mobile application under test through a reverse engineering process and then test... View full abstract»

  • A Conceptual Framework for the Comparison of Fully Automated GUI Testing Techniques

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (230 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Fully automated GUI testing techniques play an important role in the modern software development life cycles. These techniques are implemented by algorithms that automatically traverse the GUI by interacting with it, like robots discovering unexplored spaces. These algorithms are able to define and run test cases on the fly, while the application is in execution. Testing adequacy, performance or c... View full abstract»

  • Towards Automatic Constraint Elicitation in Test Design: Preliminary Evaluation Based on Collective Intelligence

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (156 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Constraint elicitation is an important process in test design since constraints determine the test space, however, the constraint elicitation process, which is known as a daunting task, has not been well studied. It usually requires manual capturing and precise definition of constraints. In this paper, we try to automate a part of the constraint elicitation process in combinatorial test design. Pa...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (335 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    GUI reference testing is performed to detect regression errors in a modified or patched GUI software. Test cases are executed on the original and modified GUIs, differences in the states of GUI widgets across versions indicate potential defects. However, various factors (e.g., position, flakiness, resolution) create problems for accurate GUI state collection, leading to spurious state mismatches, ... View full abstract»
