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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
