Recently the awareness of the importance of replicating studies has been growing in the empirical software engineering community. The results of any one study cannot simply be extrapolated to all environments because there are many uncontrollable sources of variation between different environments. In our work, we have reasoned that the availability of(More)

The Experience Management System (EMS) is aimed at supporting the capture and reuse of software-related experience, based on the Experience Factory concept. It is being developed for use in a multinational software engineering consultancy, Q-Labs. Currently, a prototype EMS exists and has been evaluated. This paper focuses on the EMS architecture,(More)
This paper describes a replication conducted to compare the effectiveness of inspectors using Perspective Based Reading (PBR) to the effectiveness of inspectors using a checklist. The goal of this replication was to better understand the complementary aspects of the PBR perspectives. To this end, a brief discussion of the original study is provided as well(More)
Modern IDEs offer built-in support for developing plug-ins. More recently, we have seen a growing number of plug-ins that offer non-conventional software visualization interfaces. They usually aim to help programmers to understand unfamiliar source code by representing it in visual structures such as trees, scatter-plots or graphs. Although very attractive(More)
Experimental replications are very important to the advancement of empirical software engineering. Replications are one of the key mechanisms to confirm previous experimental findings. They are also used to transfer experimental knowledge, to train people, and to expand a base of experimental evidence. Unfortunately, experimental replications are difficult(More)
