2019 Managed Software Evolution  
For preserving security in long-living systems, ongoing and systematic support for the evolution of knowledge and software is required.  ...  Architects use modelbased catalogues containing several security-related elements like attack types or security patterns, which are exploited as a lightweight metric for an architectural security analysis  ...  For example, Langhammer [Lan17] describes an approach for the co-evolution of Palladio architecture models and Java program code.  ...

Requirements evolution drives software evolution

Neil A. Ernst, Alexander Borgida, John Mylopoulos
2011 Proceedings of the 12th international workshop and the 7th annual ERCIM workshop on Principles on software evolution and software evolution - IWPSE-EVOL '11  
However, research in software evolution has typically focused on how to evolve software and not why.  ...  Changes to software should be made with reference to the requirements of that software, as these requirements provide the reasons for a change.  ...  This might be the case in software product lines, or in long-lived projects. The above make it clear that there is unlikely to be a single optimal answer to the problem of requirements evolution.  ...

On Architectural Stability and Evolution [chapter]

Mehdi Jazayeri
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
An important challenge is to be able to evaluate the "goodness" of a proposed architecture. I suggest stability or resilience as a primary criterion for evaluating an architecture.  ...  The stability of an architecture is a measure of how well it accommodates the evolution of the system without requiring changes to the architecture.  ...  This work was supported in part by the European Commission within the ESPRIT Framework IV project no. 20477 ARES (Architectural Reasoning for Embedded Systems).  ...

Software Architecture Evolution [chapter]

Olivier Barais, Anne Françoise Le Meur, Laurence Duchien, Julia Lawall
2008 Software Evolution  
Furthermore, we discuss one particular framework for software architecture evolution in more detail.  ...  This chapter provides an overview, comparison and detailed treatment of the various state-of-the-art approaches to evolving software architectures.  ...  It establishes a set of content requirements on an architectural description. An architecture description contains any collection of products used to document an architecture.  ...

Facets of Software Evolution [chapter]

Roland T. Mittermeir
2006 Software Evolution and Feedback  
One can witness this design for volatility on the architecture level also when considering the discussions in the intersection of research on software architecture with research on product lines [48]  ...  The word evolution is also often used in the context of the activity supporting a particular transition in a gradual change process, as, for example, in the phrase 'evolution of a notion or an idea' or  ...

Versioning for workflow evolution

Eran Chinthaka Withana, Beth Plale, Roger Barga, Nelson Araujo
2010 Proceedings of the 19th ACM International Symposium on High Performance Distributed Computing - HPDC '10  
Since we believe evolution can be used for workflow attribution, our framework will motivate researchers to share their workflows and get the credit for their contributions.  ...  Since the workflows evolve as the research itself evolves, these workflows can be a tool for tracking the evolution of the research.  ...  For example, S4 [19] focuses on securing the versioned objects and Sprite LFS [25] focuses on lowering the disk access overhead for small writes.  ...

Continuous evolution through software architecture evaluation: a case study

Christian Del Rosso
2006 Journal of Software Maintenance and Evolution Research and Practice  
When dealing with product families, architectural evaluations have an even more crucial role: the evaluations are targeted to a set of common products.  ...  We have tried different approaches to software assessments with our mobile phone software, an embedded real-time software platform, which must support an increasingly large number of different product  ...  In this regard, I would like to thank Andy Turner and Erling Stage for the cooperation and support in our work.  ...

Towards flexible evolution of Dynamically Adaptive Systems

Gilles Perrouin, Brice Morin, Franck Chauvel, Franck Fleurey, Jacques Klein, Yves Le Traon, Olivier Barais, Jean-Marc Jezequel
2012 2012 34th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE)  
We suggest leveraging recent advances in model-driven techniques to offer an approach that supports the evolution of both systems and their adaptation capabilities.  ...  The basic idea is to consider the control loop itself as an adaptive system.  ...  To reason on variations of the environment, work carried out by the Dynamic Software Product Line (DSPL) community is particularly relevant [12] .  ...

Evolution for whom?

David J. Hosken
2012 Trends in Ecology & Evolution  
Instead we should focus on questions about the sorts of architectures that are possible for behaving systems and ask what sorts of capabilities, states and processes, might be supported by different sorts  ...  As a first step this paper explores a collection of conjectures regarding architectures and their evolution.  ...  Greg Mulhauser's comments on an early draft led to many improvements. I have also benefitted from discussions with Stan Klein, Roz Picard, and Henry Stapp.  ...
