Building trust into OO components using a genetic analogy

B. Baudry, Vu Le Hanh, J.-M. Jezequel, Y. Le Traon
Proceedings 11th International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering. ISSRE 2000  
This paper presents a method and a tool for building trustable OO components.  ...  Despite the growing interest for component-based systems, few works tackle the question of the trust we can bring into a component.  ...  The approach presented in this paper aims at providing a consistent framework for building trust into components.  ...

Trustable Components: Yet Another Mutation-Based Approach [chapter]

Benoit Baudry, Vu Hanh, Jean-Marc Jézéquel, Yves Traon
2001 Mutation Testing for the New Century  
This paper presents the use of mutation analysis as the main qualification technique for: -estimating and automatically enhancing a test set (using genetic algorithms), -qualifying and improving a component's  ...  The methodology is based on an integrated design and test approach for OO software components.  ...  The approach presented in this paper aims at providing a consistent framework for building trust into components.  ...

From genetic to bacteriological algorithms for mutation-based testing

Benoit Baudry, Franck Fleurey, Jean-Marc Jézéquel, Yves Le Traon
2005 Software testing, verification & reliability  
The optimization problem is modelled as follows: a test case can be considered as a predator while a mutant program is analogous to a prey.  ...  The level of confidence in a software component is often linked to the quality of its test cases.  ...  In [6] , a testing-for-trust methodology was proposed, based on an integrated design and test approach for OO software components, particularly adapted to a design-by-contract approach, where the specification  ...

Learning to See Analogies: A Connectionist Exploration [article]

Douglas S. Blank
2020 arXiv   pre-print
The network is trained to divide input scenes (or situations) into appropriate figure and ground components.  ...  This approach stands in contrast to most existing research on analogy-making, in which typically the a priori existence of analogical mechanisms within a model is assumed.  ...  We need to develop the tools that allow us to indirectly build representations.  ...

Agrobiodiversity on the agenda

Franziska Wolff
2008 elni Review  
Agricultural biodiversity, or 'agrobiodiversity', as an important component of biological diversity, however, remains an unknown quantity for most people.  ...  With the 9th Meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity's coming up, the debate on biodiversity is spilling over from the circles of the 'usual suspects' to a broader  ...  While some programme support is expected from FAO, both state and private contributions into a Trust Account are voluntary and concrete promises on additional and obligatory international funding were  ...

The ROADMAP Meta-model for Intelligent Adaptive Multi-agent Systems in Open Environments [chapter]

Thomas Juan, Leon Sterling
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we introduce the ROADMAP meta-model, designed to describe intelligent adaptive systems in open environments, using agent concepts such as roles.  ...  The meta-model does not solve specific engineering problems, but provides a clean high-level structure where engineering issues can be grouped and classified.  ...  The first author acknowledges support from a part studentship from the Smart Internet Cooperative Research Centre.  ...

Software source code sizing using fuzzy logic modeling

Stephen G. MacDonell
2003 Information and Software Technology  
In this study we consider the applicability of fuzzy logic modeling methods to the task of software source code sizing, using a previously published data set.  ...  Our results suggest that, particularly with refinement using data and knowledge, fuzzy predictive models can outperform their traditional regression-based counterparts.  ...  The sample of seventy observations was split randomly into a model-building sample of fifty data points (BUILD) and a model-testing sample of the remaining twenty points (TEST).  ...
