    The paper describes experiences in applying a knowledge management tool, called CODE, to the major knowledge management problems in the design of a large commercial software system. There is explanation of how the design of such a product was documented as a CODE knowledge base by using CODE to carefully analyse all the important concepts and terms in direct consultation with the developers. CODE ... View full abstract»

    Software test data adequacy criteria are rules to determine whether a piece of software has been adequately tested. Since J.B. Goodenough and S.L. Gerhard (1975) pointed out that the central problem of software testing is `what is a test data adequacy criterion', many test data adequacy criteria have been proposed and investigated in the literature. Each criterion has its own strength and weakness... View full abstract»

    Maintenance frequently consumes more resources than new software development. A major portion of the maintenance effort is spent trying to understand existing software. If more can be learnt about how programmers understand code successfully, better tools to support this understanding process can be built. This contributes to higher quality and improved efficiency of maintenance tasks. Audio-taped... View full abstract»
