A classifier for predicting the character accuracy achieved by any Optical Character Recognition (OCR) system on a given page is presented. This classifier is based on measuring the amount of white speckle, the amount of character fragments, and overall size information in the page. No output from the OCR system is used. The given page is classified as… (More)
Decoupling behavior modeling from a specific inheritance hierarchy has become one of the challenges for object-oriented software engineering. The goal is to encapsulate behavior on its own, and yet be able to freely apply it to a given class structure. We claim that standard object-oriented languages do not directly address this problem and propose the… (More)
Automatic form validation enables telecommunication carriers to process incoming service order requests more effectively. Validation rules, however, can be nontrivial to test and ultimately depend on the carrier's internal software systems. Traditionally, these validation checks are spread throughout an application's source code, which makes maintaining and… (More)
DESIGNING AND PROGRAMMING WITH PERSONALITIES by Luis Blando Decoupling behavior modeling from a specific inheritance hierarchy is one of the challenges for object-oriented software engineering. The goal is to encapsulate behavior on its own, and yet be able to freely apply it to a given class structure. We claim that standard object-oriented languages do… (More)
