Abstract: Several middleware solutions have been proposed for supporting development of networked mobile applications, which are often designed with different distribution requirements and for various application scenarios. In this sense, a middleware that offers only a single communication paradigm (e.g., publish/subscribe) cannot cope with the diversity of applications and its reuse becomes very limited. In this context, this paper goal is to propose a mobile middleware solution which offers a set of communication paradigms, ranging from the traditional synchronous model to different variations of the so-called asynchronous models. In order to optimize memory footprint, common features in distributed communication are shared among all communication paradigms. Additionally, by means of a product line-based design, features can be selected and thus the middleware can be customized to better fit in more constrained devices.

Indexing Semi-Structured Data for Efficient Handling of Branching Path Expressions, Second International Conference on Advances in Databases, Knowledge, and Data Applications, (DBKDA 2010), Menuires, The Three Valleys, French Alps, France, 2010.
Abstract: One of the major challenges in development of indexing techniques for semi-structured data is related to how to index the data structural properties. The main issue is how to efficiently handle branching path expressions without suffering from undesired growth of query processing costs and index file sizes. Several proposals for indexing semi-structured data can be found in the literature. However, in order to reduce index file sizes, most of them do not index or handle branching path expressions. Considering those ones that do that, they usually suffer from high query processing costs and large index file sizes. In such a context, this paper proposes a path-based indexing technique for semi-structured data, which deals with a well-defined class of branching path expressions. As evinced by experimental evaluation, the adoption of the proposed technique results in excellent query processing time and generates index file sizes close to data input file sizes.
INES researchers had a paper accepted at 7th International Conference on Information Technology: New Generations (ITNG 2010). http://www.itng.info/.
Publication’ details are: Morais, Y.; Burity, T.; Elias, G. Towards a Mobile Middleware Product Line: A Requirement Analysis, 7th International Conference on Information Technology: New Generations (ITNG 2010), Las Vegas, EUA, 2010.
Abstract: Middleware has been extensively used in mobile devices to abstract issues raised by mobility, such as resource constraints, intermittent connectivity and platform variability. In such a sense, several proposals that explore mobile middleware concerns can be identified in the literature. However, in general, most of them deal with specific aspects of mobility (e.g. distribution, context, adaptation), providing a limited set of functionalities to applications, and, more importantly, making difficult a comprehensive understanding of the set of mobile middleware concerns. In such a context, based on a product line approach, this paper presents a requirement analysis for mobile middleware, gathering and detailing the most important mobility concerns that should be addressed, and consequently, enabling the customization of compliant platforms that can be derived from the set of elicited requirements.

A Rede de Laboratórios de Produtividade de Software contrata 4 bolsistas de Iniciação Científica para participar do Programa de Capacitação em Testes de Software WEB. Os alunos irão atuar no desenvolvimento de atividades ligadas a área de Testes de Software WEB, sob a orientação do Prof. Marcos Dósea e da Profa. Leila Silva. As atividades serão realizadas nas instalações do DCOMP/UFS (campus São Cristóvão) e NSI/UFS (campus Itabaiana), através da prática em projetos reais, envolvendo os principais conceitos e processos de testes de software, planejamento, projeto, execução, análise dos resultados dos testes, automação e ferramentas de apoio ao processo de testes de software WEB. Os alunos serão responsáveis também por definir uma metodologia de testes para aplicação das técnicas estudadas.
