Airbus Cabin Software
Found in: IEEE Software
By Stefan Burger,Oliver Hummel,Matthias Heinisch
Issue Date:January 2013
pp. 21-25
Modern aircraft are obviously complex and sensitive systems containing a large amount of software. In this column, the authors quantify this complexity by illustrating responsibilities and software size growth in terms of the cabin control software of vari...
Applying Maintainability Oriented Software Metrics to Cabin Software of a Commercial Airliner
Found in: Software Maintenance and Reengineering, European Conference on
By Stefan Burger,Oliver Hummel
Issue Date:March 2012
pp. 457-460
Airplane manufacturers are under an increasing pressure to integrate new hardware into the cabin of their planes. Clearly, this comes along with a need for changing and extending the attached software platforms as well. Anecdotally, these systems have ofte...
Towards Automatic Reconfiguration of Aviation Software Systems
Found in: Computer Software and Applications Conference Workshops
By Stefan Burger,Oliver Hummel
Issue Date:July 2011
pp. 200-205
The development of embedded systems is currently experiencing a fundamental shift towards integrating more and more heterogeneous system building blocks into ever more complex composite systems. The aviation industry is especially hit by this development a...
Towards a Language and Framework for Penurious Testing
Found in: Software Testing, Verification, and Validation, 2008 International Conference on
By Colin Atkinson, Florian Barth, Oliver Hummel, Marcus Schumacher
Issue Date:March 2011
pp. 31-39
Today's testing technologies and tools are all essentially based on the assumption that testers have full, unlimited access to systems under test along with the actual and expected results of test executions. This reflects the fact that, historically, soft...
Code Conjurer: Pulling Reusable Software out of Thin Air
Found in: IEEE Software
By Oliver Hummel,Werner Janjic,Colin Atkinson
Issue Date:September 2008
pp. 45-52
Accelerating the software development process by assembling new applications from existing software assets has been a goal of the IT industry for many years. However, most of today's systematic software reuse uses heavyweight approaches such as product-lin...
A Practical Approach to Web Service Discovery and Retrieval
Found in: Web Services, IEEE International Conference on
By Colin Atkinson, Philipp Bostan, Oliver Hummel, Dietmar Stoll
Issue Date:July 2007
pp. 241-248
One of the fundamental pillars of the web service vision is a brokerage system that enables services to be published to a searchable repository and later retrieved by potential users. This is the basic motivation for the UDDI standard, one of the three sta...
Strategies for the Run-Time Testing of Third Party Web Services
Found in: Service-Oriented Computing and Applications, IEEE International Conference on
By Daniel Brenner, Colin Atkinson, Oliver Hummel, Dietmar Stoll
Issue Date:June 2007
pp. 114-121
Because of the dynamic way in which serviceoriented architectures are configured, the correct interaction of service users and service providers can only be fully tested at r un-time. However, the run-time testing of web services is complicated by the fact...
Automated Harvesting of Test Oracles for Reliability Testing
Found in: Computer Software and Applications Conference, Annual International
By Oliver Hummel, Colin Atkinson
Issue Date:July 2005
pp. 196-202
Reliability testing is of even greater importance in component-based development than it is in traditional development methods, since it is the only practical way of measuring how well assembled components match each others? expectations. However, support ...
Using Cultural Metadata for Artist Recommendations
Found in: Web Delivering of Music, International Conference on
By Stephan Baumann, Oliver Hummel
Issue Date:September 2003
pp. 138
Our approach to generate recommendations for similar artists follows a recent tradition of authors tackling the problem not with content-based audio analysis. Following this novel procedure we rely on the acquisition, filtering and condensing of unstructur...
An unabridged source code dataset for research in software reuse
Found in: 2013 10th IEEE Working Conference on Mining Software Repositories (MSR 2013)
By Werner Janjic,Oliver Hummel,Marcus Schumacher,Colin Atkinson
Issue Date:May 2013
pp. 339-342
This paper describes a large, unabridged data-set of Java source code gathered and shared as part of the Merobase Component Finder project of the Software-Engineering Group at the University of Mannheim. It consists of the complete index used to drive the ...
Search-enhanced testing: NIER track
Found in: Proceeding of the 33rd international conference on Software engineering (ICSE '11)
By Colin Atkinson, Oliver Hummel, Werner Janjic
Issue Date:May 2011
pp. 880-883
The prime obstacle to automated defect testing has always been the generation of "correct" results against which to judge the behavior of the system under test - the "oracle problem". So called "back-to-back" testing techniques that exploit the availabilit...
Discrepancy discovery in search-enhanced testing
Found in: Proceeding of the 3rd international workshop on Search-driven development: users, infrastructure, tools, and evaluation (SUITE '11)
By Colin Atkinson, Florian Barth, Oliver Hummel, Werner Janjic
Issue Date:May 2011
pp. 21-24
Automating software testing can significantly reduce the time and effort required to assure the quality of software systems, and over recent years significant strides have been made in test automation techniques. However, one aspect of software testing tha...
Proposing software design recommendations based on component interface intersecting
Found in: Proceedings of the 2nd International Workshop on Recommendation Systems for Software Engineering (RSSE '10)
By Colin Atkinson, Oliver Hummel, Werner Janjic
Issue Date:May 2010
pp. 64-68
The open source movement had a tremendous impact on software engineering in recent years. It not only established serious competition for many commercial software vendors, it also led to the availability of millions of source code artifacts on the Internet...
