On the impact of Performance Antipatterns in multi-objective software model refactoring optimization [article]

Vittorio Cortellessa, Daniele Di Pompeo, Vincenzo Stoico, Michele Tucci
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We have applied our approach on a train ticket booking service case study, and we have focused the analysis on the impact of performance antipatterns on the quality of solutions.  ...  In particular, performance antipatterns objective leads to solutions improving the performance by up to 15% with respect to the case where antipatterns are not considered, without affecting the solution  ...  Figure 3 provides clear evidence of higher quality solutions in the case with PAs, where antipattern detection helps to drive the evolutionary algorithm towards solutions that achieve PERFQ improvements  ...

Numerical Signatures of Antipatterns: An Approach Based on B-Splines

R Oliveto, F Khomh, G Antoniol, Y Gueheneuc
2010 2010 14th European Conference on Software Maintenance and Reengineering  
The identification of occurrences of antipatterns in systems has received recently some attention but current approaches have two main limitations: either (1) they classify classes strictly as being or  ...  not antipatterns, and thus cannot report accurate information for borderline classes, or (2) they return the probabilities of classes to be antipatterns but they require an expensive tuning by experts  ...  The purpose of our case study is to show that ABS helps in improving the quality of systems by supporting the detection of antipatterns.  ...

Visualizing Design Erosion: How Big Balls of Mud are Made [article]

David Baum, Jens Dietrich, Craig Anslow, Richard Müller
2018 arXiv   pre-print
We evaluated the effectiveness of the visualisation in four case studies with ten participants.  ...  It has been observed that this process often leads to the erosion of the systems design and architecture and with it, the decline of many desirable quality attributes, such as maintainability.  ...  Our use case requires the visualisation of the structural evolution of the system and the antipattern instances at the same time. We are not aware of any evolution visualisation that supports this.  ...

Predicting Bugs Using Antipatterns

Seyyed Ehsan Salamati Taba, Foutse Khomh, Ying Zou, Ahmed E. Hassan, Meiyappan Nagappan
2013 2013 IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance  
Therefore in this paper, we explore the use of antipatterns for bug prediction, and strive to improve the accuracy of bug prediction models by proposing various metrics based on antipatterns.  ...  Managers and quality assurance personnel can use our proposed metrics to better improve their bug prediction models and better focus testing activities and the allocation of support resources.  ...  Our work in this paper has the same aim as these studies (i.e., the improvement of software quality).  ...

2013 ACM/IEEE International Conference on Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems  
Hence, antipatterns heuristics have been used as domain-specific search operators within the evolutionary optimization.  ...  However, these heuristics usually improve only one quality attribute and using them in multiobjective problem is challenging.  ...  Acknowledgments This work has been supported by the Netherlands national project OMECA (Optimization of Modular Embedded Computer-vision Architectures).  ...

COBOL Systems Migration to SOA: Assessing Antipatterns and Complexity

Cristian Mateos, Alejandro Zunino, Andres Flores, Sanjay Misra
2019 Information Technology and Control  
In our previous work, we presented an intermediate approach based on direct migration where developed Web Services are later refactored to improve the quality of their interfaces.  ...  Migrations of two real COBOL systems upon the three approaches were assessed on antipatterns evidences and the complexity level of the generated SOA frontiers -a total of 431 WSDL documents.  ...  The antipattern described in the third row is related to poor data model designs. Redundant data models usually arise from limitations or bad use of the software to generate WSDL documents.  ...

Detection and solution of software performance antipatterns in palladio architectural models

Catia Trubiani, Anne Koziolek
2011 Proceeding of the second joint WOSP/SIPEW international conference on Performance engineering - ICPE '11  
We implemented the approach and a case study is presented to demonstrate its validity. The system performance under study has been improved by 50% with the use of antipatterns' solutions.  ...  Currently, such knowledge is only used by domain experts; the problem of automatically detecting and solving antipatterns within an architectural model had not yet been empirically addressed.  ...  Multi-criteria evolutionary quality optimisation tries to improve several quality attributes (such as performance and reliability) at once by iteratively evolving the software model, applying random mutation  ...
