Software tools processing partially common set of data should share an understanding of what these data mean. Since ontologies have been used to express formally a shared understanding of information, we argue that they can be used to improve integration in Software Engineering Environments (SEE). In this paper we discuss an ontology-based approach to(More)
Ontologies are becoming an important mechanism to build information systems. However, ontology construction is not a simple task. So, it is necessary to provide tools that support ontology development. This paper presents ODEd, an ontology editor that supports the definition of concepts and relations using graphic representations, besides promoting(More)
Software tools processing partially common set of data should share an understanding of what these data mean. Since ontologies have been used to express formally a shared understanding of information, we argue that they are a way towards Semantic SEEs. In this paper we discuss an ontology-based approach to tool integration and present ODE, an ontology-based(More)
Usually researches start with their research work accomplishing a literature review of some sort. However, unless the review is true, far and repeatable, it is of little scientific value. In this sense, a systematic literature reviews aim at providing the means for carrying out literature reviews that are thorough and unbiased, such that produces scientific(More)
The growing interest in experimental studies in software engineering and the difficulties found in their execution had led software engineering researchers to look for ways to (semi) automate the experimental process. This paper introduces the concept of experimental Software Engineering Environment (eSEE) – an infrastructure capable of instantiating(More)
