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)
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)
Experimental studies have been used as a mechanism to acquire knowledge through a scientific approach based on measurement of phenomena in different areas. However it is hard to run such studies when they require models (simulation), produce amount of information, and explore science in scale. In this case, a computerized infrastructure is necessary and(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)
Accomplishing software verification and validation (V&V) activities is not a simple task. It involves a great number of techniques to choose and there is no sufficient organized information to support the selection regarding the V&V technique to be used. This paper describes an ongoing research work concerned with the definition of an approach to plan(More)
