Two applications for transient views in software development environments

Christoph Daniel Schulze, Miro Sponemann, Christian Schneider, Reinhard von Hanxleden
2014 2014 IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing (VL/HCC)  
Pragmatics-aware modeling refers to model-driven engineering with designer productivity in mind.  ...  We apply this concept to traditional software development by introducing two exemplary applications for transient views geared at increasing developer productivity: UML class diagram generation and debug  ...  To implement the transient views approach to class diagram generation, we used the KLighD framework, a part of the KIELER project. 3 We added a simple diagram synthesis that turns a selection from the  ...

A novel program synthesis approach in test driven software development

Endre Ferencz, Balázs Goldschmidt
2017 Pollack Periodica  
It is a viable alternative to automatically generate Java source code based on the specification provided by the associated unit tests.  ...  According to the presented vision the modern test frameworks, development guidelines and computational capacities make it possible to reach this goal.  ...  It is not uncommon to use a component-based approach in program synthesis [11] .  ...

A pragmatic approach for producing theoretical syntheses in ecology

Bruno Travassos-Britto, Renata Pardini, Charbel N. El-Hani, Paulo I. Prado, Sergio Consoli
2021 PLoS ONE  
Because in fields that develop pragmatically knowledge generation is based on the decisions of individuals and not on a set of predefined axioms, the best way to produce theoretical synthesis in such fields  ...  By implementing the pragmatic approach in a case study, we show that it can be successfully used to produce syntheses based on the actual activity of the scientific community studying the phenomenon.  ...  Citation: Travassos-Britto B, Pardini R, El-Hani CN, axioms, the best way to produce theoretical synthesis in such fields is to assess what indi- Prado PI (2021) A pragmatic approach for producing theoretical  ...

The Javatime Approach to Mixed Hardware-Software System Design [chapter]

James Shin Young, Josh MacDonald, Michael Shilman, Abdallah Tabbara, Paul Hilfinger, A. Richard Newton
1999 System-Level Synthesis  
We describe an approach for using Java as a basis for a design and specification language for embedded systems and use our JavaTime system to illustrate many of the aspects of the approach.  ...  Java is a pragmatic choice for several reasons. Since it is a member of the C "family" of languages, it is familiar to designers. Unlike C and C++, it has standard support for concurrency.  ...  JavaTime clocked, synchronous hardware software for an RTOS ... Figure 1.1: Java as a Syntax for Design Representation The choice of Java in this role is a pragmatic one for several reasons.  ...

A rigorous user needs experience evaluation method based on software quality standards

Mohammad Zarour
2020 TELKOMNIKA (Telecommunication Computing Electronics and Control)  
In conclusion, a consensus in the various researches and practitioners communities in that UX "is more than just a product's usefulness and usability" [3], UX is the result of interaction with software  ...  We, as humans, are using software applications in all our life aspects to meet our daily objectives and fulfill our needs.  ...  In this approach, the needs are analyzed and represented by a set of user needs aspects (pragmatic aspects, hedonic aspects) defined in the user experience framework [7] .  ...

From screening to synthesis: using nvivo to enhance transparency in qualitative evidence synthesis

Catherine Houghton, Kathy Murphy, Ben Meehan, James Thomas, Dawn Brooker, Dympna Casey
2017 Journal of Clinical Nursing  
Qualitative evidence synthesis brings together many research findings in a meaningful way that can be used to guide practice and policy development.  ...  For this purpose, synthesis must be conducted in a comprehensive and rigorous way.  ...  Framework synthesis is gaining recognition as a systematic synthesis approach that is pragmatic and facilitates team working with complex data.  ...

Applying Organizational Semiotics for Developing Knowledge-Based Cost Estimation of Construction Project [chapter]

Shen Xu, Kecheng Liu, Llewellyn CM Tang
2015 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
This research highlights the importance of alignment between semantic (domain ontology) and pragmatic (meaning in use), it contributes also to identify a new approach of knowledge engineering for construction  ...  In order to overcome this gap, we adopt organizational semiotics to fully reveal semantic units of cost estimation from a process perspective. Pilot study confirms feasibility of this approach.  ...  various software packages and attempting to link all these behaviours together to deliver cost estimation via quantity surveying approach.  ...

Doing Meta-Analysis with R - A Hands-On Guide

Christopher J. Lortie
2022 Journal of Statistical Software  
Scientific synthesis is a diverse field of contemporary science.  ...  Consequently, there is a critical need for accessible, pragmatic publications, resources, and texts that enable scientists with varying levels of expertise to engage in scientific syntheses using meta-analysis  ...  There is also sufficient detail in the math, explanations, and theory to support readers who need to learn how to do a meta-analysis but perhaps elect to use another statistical software application.  ...

Klaus Beetz, Wolfgang Böhm
2012 Model-Based Engineering of Embedded Systems  
Challenges in Engineering for Software-Intensive Embedded Systems As long as there were no machines, programming was no problem at all; when we had a few weak computers, programming became a mild problem  ...  , and now that we have gigantic computers, programming has become a gigantic problem.  ...  Concrete Implementation The generic approach can be mapped to a concrete implementation without adopting the partially integrated pragmatic approaches.  ...
