Two Different Facets of Architectural Smells Criticality: An Empirical Study

Ilaria Pigazzini, Davide Foppiani, Francesca Arcelli Fontana
2021 European Conference on Software Architecture  
The analysis of the correlation is useful to study whether the criticality of a smell has an influence on how much it costs to remove it, and vice-versa.  ...  It is important to identify among them the most critical ones, so that developers can prioritize them for their removal.  ...  Moreover, we did not validate the two metrics by investigating the perception of developers of PageRank and Severity.  ...

Assessment of Code Smell for Predicting Class Change Proneness using Machine Learning

Nakul Pritam, Manju Khari, Le Hoang Son, Raghvendra Kumar, Sudan Jha, Ishaani Priyadarshini, Mohamed Abdel-Basset, Hoang Viet Long
2019 IEEE Access  
The objective of this paper is to approve the effect of code smell on the change inclination of a specific class in a product framework.  ...  Furthermore, this paper aims to validate code smell for predicting class change proneness to find an error in the prediction of change proneness using code smell.  ...  The pre-identification of smells checks accuracy of the learning algorithms. The algorithm tested on a software with minimum code smell gives better accuracy than a software with code smell.  ...

Towards the Systematic Testing of Virtual Reality Programs (extended version) [article]

Stevao A. Andrade, Fatima L. S. Nunes, Marcio E. Delamaro
2020 arXiv   pre-print
The results showed that the practice of software testing is not yet widespread in the development of VR applications. It was also found that there is a high incidence of code smells in VR projects.  ...  Regarding the application of software testing techniques on VR projects, it was observed that only a small number of projects are concerned about developing test cases for VR projects, perhaps because  ...  Acknowledgements We also would like to thanks Tushar Sharma and Designite team by providing us an Academic license of Designite tool.  ...

Sensory-Based Design & Epilepsy: Analyzing effects of design innovations on patient treatment and recovery

James Shraiky, Joshua Schoonover, Joseph Sirven, Luann Helepololei
2012 Enquiry: The ARCC Journal of Architectural Research  
The patient room has more influence on neurological, physiological and biological responses than any other area within a healthcare environment.  ...  When it comes to the treatment of epilepsy, the patient room often acts as a refuge from and instigator of seizure activity, depending on patient condition or status.  ...  Prototyping is a method of testing responses in their early development in order to identify flaws and develop new investigation.  ...

Evolutionary and Functional Analysis of Korean Native Pig Using Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms

Jongin Lee, Nayoung Park, Daehwan Lee, Jaebum Kim
2020 Molecules and Cells  
We examined the evolutionary history of KNP SNPs, and the specific genes of KNP based on the uniqueness of non-synonymous SNPs among the used species and pig breeds.  ...  Our study provides new insight into the evolution of KNP and serves as a good example for a better understanding of domestic animals in terms of evolution and domestication using the combined approaches  ...  The intra-species KNP-specific nsSNP data within the pig QTL regions is available on My Hubs page on the UCSC track hub website ( using the hub URL (http://  ...
