Non-functional requirements (NFRs) are often regarded as the key success factor in building high quality software. However, most of the requirements elicitation methods are centered on discovering functional requirements only. This paper presents a novel NFRs elicitation approach aiming at empowering requirements analysts with a knowledge repository that(More)
Access efficiency and energy conservation are two critical performance concerns in a wireless data broadcast system. We propose in this paper a novel parameterized index called the exponential index that has a linear yet distributed structure for wireless data broadcast. Based on two tuning knobs, index base and chunk size, the exponential index can be(More)
—Existing fault localization techniques combine various program features and similarity coefficients with the aim of precisely assessing the similarities among the dynamic spectra of these program features to predict the locations of faults. Many such techniques estimate the probability of a particular program feature causing the observed failures. They(More)
—Bug fixing is a time-consuming and costly job which is performed in the whole life cycle of software development and maintenance. For many systems, bugs are managed in bug management systems such as Bugzilla. Generally, the status of a typical bug report in Bugzilla changes from new to assigned, verified and closed. However, some bugs have to be reopened.(More)
After merger of Web Services and Semantic Web, Semantic Web Services (SWS) has received a lot of attention from researchers due to its ability of automatic Web Service discovery, execution and composition. Currently Web Service systems, which publish WSDL-described Web Services in UDDIs, cannot support SWS and UDDI has become the bottleneck of the whole(More)
