  • INES at OOPSLA\SPLASH\Onward 2010

    INES researchers André Santos, Fernando Castor, Márcio Ribeiro, Paulo Borba, Sérgio Soares, Tiago Massoni and Rohit Gheyi will attend SPLASH’2010 (ACM Conference on Systems, Programming, Languages, and Applications: Software for Humanity)

    Márcio Ribeiro and Paulo Borba have a paper entitled “Emergent Feature Modularization“, which has been accepted for publication in the Onward! 2010 proceedings, co-allocated with SPLASH. This paper is a result of the project “Tool Support for Software Product Lines Development and Evolution”.

    Fernando Castor had a poster accepted at SPLASH’2010. Publication’ details are:

    FARIAS, Rafael ; SOARES-NETO, Francisco ; CASTOR, Fernando . Hamster - Making Grid Middleware Fault-Tolerant. In: ACM Conference on Systems, Programming, Languages, and Applications: Software for Humanity (SPLASH’2010), 2010, Reno. SPLASH’2010 Companion. New York : ACM Press, 2010.

    Abstract: Organizations which use grid computing have to deal with events such as a machine turned off or a failed component. Some of these events can completely break a grid, wasting important resources. This paper presents Hamster, a monitoring and recovery mechanism for grid middleware. Its main goal is to maximize the use of available resources, recovering faulty middleware components and avoiding resource idleness or, worse, a complete grid stop. Hamster comprises a number of services that complement existing application-level checkpointing mechanisms. It has been integrated into the OurGrid middleware platform.

    UFPB researchers that are members from the INES project named as “Distributed Development based on Software Product Lines” has two papers accepted at 4th Brazilian Workshop on Distributed Software Development (WDDS).

    Publications’ details:

    * SANTOS, V. S. ; PEREIRA, T. A. B. ; RIBEIRO, B. L. ; ELIAS, G. . Um Framework de Recomendação para Alocação de Equipes de Desenvolvimento em Projetos Distribuídos de Linhas de Produto de Software. In: IV Workshop de Desenvolvimento Distribuído de Software, 2010, Salvador.

    Abstract: Software Product Line (SPL) and Distributed Software Development (DSD) approaches have been adopted by many companies to improve software quality, finding more qualified manpower, and reduce development costs and time. However, in such a scenario, teams allocation is not a trivial task, because it has to take into account properties of the software project, the teams and the context in which they are immersed. Thus, the framework proposed in this paper aims to provide recommendations on how to allocate teams to software components in distributed SPL projects by considering technical and non-technical aspects.

    * RIBEIRO, B. L. ; ELIAS, G. . Alocando Equipes Distribuídas com base em Aspectos Não-Técnicos. In: IV Workshop de Desenvolvimento Distribuído de Software, 2010, Salvador.

    Abstract: Taking into account the benefits of distributed software development, many organizations allocate implementation tasks among globally distributed teams. However, their cultural, temporal and geographical differences reduce the communication effectiveness, directly affecting the project’s progress and success. In order to mitigate such communication issues, based on non-technical features of global distributed development teams and dependences among software modules, this article describes an approach for recommending the allocation of development teams to implementation tasks of software modules.

    UFPB researchers that are members from the INES project named as “Distributed Development based on Software Product Lines” has a paper accepted at 1st Brazilian Workshop on Optimization in Software Engineering (WOES).

    Publication details:

    PEREIRA, T. A. B. ; ELIAS, G. . Uma Estratégia de Otimização para Agrupamento de Componentes de Software Baseada em DSM. In: I Workshop Brasileiro de Otimização em Engenharia de Software, 2010, Salvador.

    Abstract: In distributed Software Product Line (SPL) projects, dependencies between components influence on communication needs between their respective development teams. Thus, an alternative to reduce such needs is to cluster tightly coupled components into loosely coupled modules as long as each module is developed by a single team. In such a context, since numerous clustering possibilities exist, this paper describes an optimization strategy for clustering software components based on the technique named numerical DSM (Design Structure Matrix), which is adopted to represent dependencies among components of the SPL architecture.
