I n the May 2001 issue of Computer, two of us published an article called " COTS-Based Systems Top 10 List " (pp. 91–93). The list identified 10 hypotheses that served as challenges for enhancing our empirical understanding of commercial off-the-shelf software. These hypotheses were primarily related to COTS-based systems development. CBSs remain one of(More)
This paper presents the twelve most significant lessons the CeBASE community has learned across a wide variety of projects, domains, and organizations about COTS-Based Systems (CBS) maintenance. Because many of the lessons identified are not intuitive, the source and implications of the lesson are discussed as well within the context of maintenance model(More)
Most risk analysis tools and techniques require the user to enter a good deal of information before they can provide useful diagnoses. In this paper, we describe an approach to enable the user to obtain a COTS glue code integration risk analysis with no inputs other than the set of glue code cost drivers the user submits to get a glue code integration(More)
Introduction Over the past several decades, the impact of the information age has infiltrated almost all facets of life. In fact, it is difficult to think of a common daily activity that does not-to some degree-rely on products of the information age. Sports fans rely on the Internet to update their fantasy rosters, businessmen depend on communication(More)

T he development of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS)-based software is different in many respects from in-house software development. Since COTS requires different activities and skills, we need to build a body of knowledge about COTS-based software development. Thus, the authors have built a Web-based repository of lessons learned, seeded with about 70(More)
