This work presents the results of a three-year project that assessed nine different privacy-preserving data search systems. We detail the design of a software assessment framework that focuses on low system footprint, repeatability, and reusability. A unique achievement of this project was the automation and integration of the entire test ...

Researchers have proposed a number of automated techniques for testing refactoring engines. However, they may have limitations related to the program generator, time consumption, kinds of bugs, and debugging. We propose a technique to scale testing of refactoring engines. We improve expressiveness of a program generator, use a technique to ...

Technical Debt (TD) reflects problems in software maintainability along evolution. TD principal is defined as the effort required for refactoring an existing system to an ideal one (a.k.a. optimal) that suffers from no maintainability problems. One of the open problems in the TD community is that ideal versions of systems ...

Context. Several early requirements approaches focus on modeling objectives, interest or benefits of related stakeholders. However, as they can be used for different purposes as identifying problems, exploring system solutions, evaluating alternatives, etc., there are no clear guidelines on how to build these models, which constructs of the language must ...

With the growing popularity of machine translation services, it has become increasingly important to be able to assess their quality. However, the test oracle problem makes it difficult to conduct automated testing. In this paper, we propose a Monte Carlo method, in combination with metamorphic testing, to overcome the oracle ...

Background . Practical use of a measure X for an internal attribute (e.g., size, structural complexity, cohesion, coupling) of a software module often requires setting a threshold on X , to make decisions as to which software modules may be estimated to be potentially faulty. To keep quality under control, ...

As software systems evolve and change over time, test suites used for checking the correctness of software typically grow larger. Together with size, test suites tend to grow in redundancy. This is especially problematic for complex highly-configurable software domains, as growing the size of test suites significantly impacts the cost ...

Numerous static analysis techniques have recently been proposed for identifying information flows in mobile applications. These techniques are compared to each other, usually on a set of syntactic benchmarks. Yet, configurations used for such comparisons are rarely described. Our experience shows that tools are often compared under different setup, rendering ...
