    Network protocol designers face many difficult tasks, including simultaneously monitoring state in a potentially large number of nodes, understanding and analyzing complex message exchanges, and characterizing dynamic interactions with competing traffic. Traditionally they have used packet traces to accomplish these tasks, but traces have two major drawbacks: they present an incredible amount of d... View full abstract»

    Developing and using various component forms as building blocks can significantly enhance software-based system development and use, which is why both the academic and commercial sectors have shown interest in component-based software development. Indeed, much effort has been devoted to defining and describing the terms and concepts involved. Briefly, we describe software components as units of in... View full abstract»

    Exactness and accuracy are not the same thing. Compilers require program code to be exact. Computers provide arithmetic that is inexact. Programmers must take particular care with their coding if they wish to ensure that their programs produce accurate results. Programmers must also take particular care if their compilers are to produce correct results. Coding must be exact, except for the comment... View full abstract»

    Experience and studies of software-model clashes confirm that every software project is unavoidably confronted by a spiderweb of potential model clashes derived from the success models of the project's key stakeholders. These stakeholders usually include the software system's users, acquirers, developers and maintainers. Additional key stakeholders can include venture capitalists, marketers, propr...

    Major search engines such as Hotbot (http://www.hotbot.com) help us find text on the Web, but typically have few or no capabilities for finding visual media. Yet many Web users, such as magazine editors or professional Web site designers, need to find images using just a few global features. My colleagues and I developed a prototype system called ImageScape (http://skynet.liacs.nl) to find visual ... View full abstract»
