In 2012, the International Symposium on Component-based Software Engineering (CBSE) is being organized for the 15th time. This is a great opportunity to take a step back and reflect on the impact of the symposium over these 15 years. Several interesting questions immediately come to mind: What were the main topics of interest in the community? What is the(More)
Web applications are one of today's fastest growing software systems. Structurally, they are composed of two parts: the server side, used for data access and business logic, and the client side, used as a user interface. In recent years, with developers building complex interfaces, the client side is playing an increasingly important role. Unfortunately,(More)
Settling down the software architecture for embedded system is a complex and time consuming task. Specific concerns that are generally issued from implementation details must be captured in the software architecture and assessed to ensure system correctness. The matter is further complicated by the inherent complexity and heterogeneity of the targeted(More)
Client-side web applications are highly-dynamic event-driven GUI applications where the majority of code is executed as a response to user-generated events. Many software engineering activities (e.g. testing) require sequences of actions (i.e. usage scenarios) that execute the application code with high coverage. Specifying these usage scenarios is a(More)
Highly interactive web applications that offer user experience and responsiveness of standard desktop applications are becoming prevalent in the web application domain. However, with these benefits come certain drawbacks. For example, the event-based architectural style, and poor support for code organization, often lead to a situation where code(More)
Wildfires are natural risk phenomena that cause significant economic and environmental damage. In wildfire fighting strategy it is important to detect the wildfire in its initial stage and to apply, as soon as possible, the most appropriate fire fighting action. In both cases wildfire monitoring and surveillance systems are of great importance, so in the(More)
