How Does Retirement Planning Software Handle Postretirement Realities? [chapter]

Anna M. Rappaport, John A. Turner

How Does Context Affect the Distribution of Software Maintainability Metrics?

Feng Zhang, Audris Mockus, Ying Zou, Foutse Khomh, Ahmed E. Hassan
2013 2013 IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance  
We also briefly discuss how each context factor may affect the distribution of metric values.  ...  Here we aim to investigate if the distributions of commonly used metrics do, in fact, vary with six context factors: application domain, programming language, age, lifespan, the number of changes, and  ...  It does not assume a normal distribution since it is a non-parametric statistical test.  ...

How good does a Defect Predictor need to be to guide Search-Based Software Testing? [article]

Anjana Perera
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Automated test generators such as search-based software testing (SBST) techniques can use this information to direct their search for test cases to likely buggy code, thus speeding up the process of detecting  ...  This leads to the question of how does the variation in defect prediction performance affect the bug detection effectiveness of SBST techniques that incorporate defect prediction information.  ...  We evaluate how the bug detection effectiveness of SBST guided by DP changes with the different levels of imprecision when applied to 420 bugs from the Defects4J dataset [20] (Section 3.1).  ...

How does testing affect the availability of aging software systems?

Michael Grottke, Benjamin Schleich
2013 Performance evaluation (Print)  
This paper proposes an approach to examining how testing affects the operational behavior of aging software systems.  ...  Moreover, we show how to combine the two models for a joint analysis in which metrics of interest concerning the operational phase, like the optimal rejuvenation rate, are random variables whose distributions  ...  How does the length of the testing phase influence the optimal frequency of triggering software rejuvenation, and the availability attainable?  ...
