— It is presented a promising approach to test interactive components, supporting the automatic generation of test cases from a specification. The relevance and difficulties (issues and challenges) associated with the testing of interactive components are first presented. It is shown that a formal specification with certain characteristics allows the(More)
CMMI practices can be poorly implemented leading to weak performance gain. SCAMPI verifies model compliance but not performance. Hence, a framework to evaluate the quality of implementation of each practice, based on compliance and performance results, will prevent poor implementation , locate and fix problems, and ultimately achieve better results. In this(More)
— Requirements defects have a major impact throughout the whole software lifecycle. Having a specific defects classification for requirements is important to analyse the root causes of problems, build checklists that support requirements reviews and to reduce risks associated with requirements problems. In our research we analyse several defects(More)
— CMMI ® has proven benefits in software process improvement. Typically, organisations that achieve a CMMI level rating improve their performance. However, CMMI implementation is not trivial, in particular for high maturity levels, and not all organisations achieve the expected results. Certain CMMI implementation problems may remain undetected by SCAMPI SM(More)
It is presented an approach based on data-driven active rules for the maintenance of derived data (calculated data) and integrity constraints (data restrictions) in screen forms and other user interfaces to databases. The approach aims to improve the c apabilities of current application development tools, by combining the power of active rules, as proposed(More)
