    Product line software engineering empowers high-level constructive software reuse by exploiting commonality and managing variability among the member products in a product family. A new feature-oriented method has been proposed to model feature variability and dependencies in software product lines. To conquer the complexity of the modelling, the modelling is decomposed into two views - a feature ... View full abstract»

    Updating software via the Internet is becoming a necessary feature of contemporary software. However, most software updating processes need to restart the programs or systems after the new software modules are installed. Dynamic reconfiguration is a technique that can deploy new software modules without restarting. This is usually achieved by modifying programming language syntax, language runtime...

  • Diversity of structures and adaptive methods on an evolutionary hypermedia system

    SEM-HP is a model for the development of evolutionary and adaptive hypermedia systems by means of: a development process that consists in iterative and evolutionary phases; a layered architecture that captures each phase in subsystems divided into two levels of abstraction (system and metasystem); and an author tool that implements the model. The paper focuses on the capability of adaptation of th... View full abstract»

  • Constructing multiple unique input/output sequences using metaheuristic optimisation techniques

    Multiple unique input/output sequences (UIOs) are often used to generate robust and compact test sequences in finite state machine (FSM) based testing. However, computing UIOs is NP-hard. Metaheuristic optimisation techniques (MOTs) such as genetic algorithms (GAs) and simulated annealing (SA) are effective in providing good solutions for some NP-hard problems. In the paper, the authors investigat... View full abstract»
