  • Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    NASA is developing plans for innovative and novel approaches to future (unmanned) space exploration missions. Future missions involve sending spacecraft and robots to harsh environments, where resilience is necessary for ...
  • Gaudin, Benoit; Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike; Nixon, Paddy; Coelho, Garcia J.; Maalej, Walid (Szkoła Wyższa Psychologii Społecznej (SWPS), 2012)
    One of the main objectives of self-adaptive systems is to reduce maintenance costs through automatic adaptation. Self-healing is a self-adapting property that helps systems return to a normal state after a fault or ...
  • English, Michael; Exton, Chris; Cleary, Brendan; Rigon, Irene (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009)
    Software maintenance continues to be a time and resource intensive activity. Any efforts that help to address the maintenance bottleneck within the software lifecycle are welcome. One area where such e orts are useful is ...
  • Botterweck, Goetz; Lee, Kwanwoo (2009)
    In this position paper, we discuss feature dependencies as one major challenge in product line engineering. We suggest that (1) feature dependencies should be treated as first class entities and (2) dependencies in various ...
  • Lee, Kwanwoo; Botterweck, Goetz; Thiel, Steffen (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    Feature modeling is an essential activity for modeling and managing the variability of a software product line. On the other hand, aspect-oriented programming provides effective means for modularizing feature implementation. ...
  • Sanders, Martha H. (University of Limerick, 2008)
    The environment of software development and maintenance is intangible, invisible and consequently difficult to manage. Specific problems have been documented, and solutions developed to meet these individual problems. ...
  • English, Michael; Buckley, Jim; Cahill, Tony (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    Modularity is one of the key features of the Object-Oriented (OO) paradigm. Low coupling and high cohesion help to achieve good modularity. Inheritance is one of the core concepts of the OO paradigm which facilitates ...
  • Fitzgerald, Brian; Slaughter, Sandra A.; Agerfalk, Par J. (INFORMS (Institute for Operations Research and Management Sciences), 2006)
    In recent years, considerable research attention has been devoted to process flexibility and globally distributed IS development. The quest for flexibility is evident in the development of various agile methods, such as ...
  • Bergel, Alexandre (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    Wireless sensor networks necessitate a programming model different from those used to develop desktop applications. Typically, resources in terms of power and memory are constrained. C is the most common programming language ...
  • Desmond, Michael; Storey, Margaret-Anne (2006)
    The use of modern programming paradigms and technologies,such as object orientation, inheritance, polymorphism and aspect orientation, facilitate a number of important software engineeringbenefits. Concerns can be better ...
  • Janota, Mikolas; Botterweck, Goetz (2008)
    If we model a family of software applications with a feature model and an architecture model, we are describing the same subject from different perspectives. Hence, we are running the risk of inconsistencies. For instance, ...
  • Espinoza, Angelina; Botterweck, Goetz; Garbajosa, Juan (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010)
    Software Product Line (SPL) Engineering has to deal with interrelated, complex models such as feature and architecture models, hence traceability is fundamental to keep them consistent. Commonly, a traceability schema must ...
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike; Nixon, Paddy (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    Intelligent swarms draw their inspiration from biology where many simple entities act independently, but when grouped, they appear to be highly organized. NASA is currently investigating swarm-based technologies for the ...
  • Fitzgerald, Brian (Blackwell Publishing, 1996)
    Systems development issues occupy a position of central importance in the information systems field and, indeed, much has been prescribed in the quest for successful systems development. However, given the well-documented ...
  • Black, Sue; Boca, Paul P.; Bowen, Jonathan P.; Gorman, Jason; Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    The potential for combining agile and formal methods holds promise. Although it might not always be an easy partnership, it will succeed if it can foster a fruitful interchange of expertise between the two communities.
  • Feller, Joseph; Fitzgerald, Brian (Association for Computing Machinery, 2000)
    Open Source Software (OSS) has become the subject of much commercial interest of late. Certainly, OSS seems to hold much promise in addressing the core issues of the software crisis, namely that of software taking too long ...
  • Agerfalk, Par J.; Fitzgerald, Brian; Holmstrom Olsson, Helena; Lings, Brian; Lundell, Bjorn; Ó Conchúir, Eoin (Austrian Computer Society, 2005)
    In this paper we present an overview of the field of distributed development of software systems and applications (DD). Based on an analysis of the published literature, we consider threats to communication, coordination ...
  • Haque, Rafiqul; Richardson, Ita; Whelan, Eoin; Taher, Yehia; Van den Heuvel, Willem-Jan; Tawbi, Samar (International Journal of Information Studies, 2011)
    Processes are the main constituents of public services and as such demand correct and complete execution. Increasingly however, governments feel the pressuring need to deliver public services more quickly and personalized ...
  • Ali Babar, Muhammad (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    Software Architecture (SA) evaluation process requires a large number of stakeholders to be collocated for evaluation sessions. Given the increasing trend of using globally distributed software development teams, organizations ...
