Our visitor from HTL Leonding

Florian Redlinger-Pohn, a student from the HTL Leonding, a secondary technical school, just spent two weeks at our lab to work on his thesis describing a tool suite for model-driven software engineering. His work has been supervised by Gerhard Gehrer and Paul Grünbacher.

Abstract: Understanding and tracking down memory-related performance problems, such as long garbage collection times and memory leaks, is a tedious task in large and complex applications. Memory profilers can support developers in this task by recording detailed traces of the application’s memory behavior which can then be analyzed offline. Unfortunately, these traces can become huge, … Continue reading @PPPJ’15

@ASE 2015

We are happy that two papers on research results of our lab will be presented at the 30th IEEE/ACM Int’l Conference on Automated Software Engineering (ASE 2015), which will take place in Lincoln, Nebraska (USA). Configuration-Aware Change Impact Analysis (Authors: Florian Angerer, Andreas Grimmer, Herbert Prähofer, Paul Grünbacher) Understanding variability is essential to allow the … Continue reading @ASE 2015

Abstract: Many software-intensive systems today can be characterized as systems of systems (SoS) comprising complex, interrelated, and heterogeneous systems. The behavior of SoS often only emerges at runtime due to complex interactions between the involved systems and their environment. It is thus necessary to determine unexpected behavior by monitoring SoS at runtime, i.e., collecting and … Continue reading in: Journal of Systems and Software, 2015

@SPLC’15 and MODELS’15

We recently got two empirical papers accepted on the notion of features (SPLC’15) and feature modelling (MODELS’15). The work leading to the first paper has been conducted in cooperation with the University of Waterloo, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Fraunhofer IESE, and the University of Toronto. What is a Feature? A Qualitative Study of Features in … Continue reading @SPLC’15 and MODELS’15

A Requirements Monitoring Model for Systems of Systems @ RE’15 Conference 2015

Abstract: Many software systems today can be characterized as systems of systems (SoS) comprising interrelated and heterogeneous systems developed by diverse teams over many years. Due to their scale, complexity, and heterogeneity engineers face significant challenges when determining the compliance of SoS with their requirements. Requirements monitoring approaches are a viable solution for checking system … Continue reading A Requirements Monitoring Model for Systems of Systems @ RE’15 Conference 2015

FOSD Meeting 2015 — International Academy Traunkirchen, Austria — May 13-16, 2015

The FOSD Meeting is an informal workshop within the field of software development for variability-rich software systems and feature-oriented software development (FOSD). The FOSD meeting 2015 was organized by Florian Angerer (Johannes Kepler University Linz, Austria), Sven Apel (Universität Passau, Germany), Christian Kästner (Carnegie Mellon University, USA), Herbert Prähofer (JKU Linz, Austria) and Paul Grünbacher … Continue reading FOSD Meeting 2015 — International Academy Traunkirchen, Austria — May 13-16, 2015

Cooperation with Politechnico di Milano, Italy

The lab is cooperating with Politechnico di Milano, Italy (Prof. Dr. Luciano Baresi, Dr. Sam Guinea, Dr. Clément Quinton) in the areas of constraint languages for runtime monitoring and dynamic software product lines. During a recent visit Michael Vierhauser and Rick Rabiser gave a talk at Politechnico di Milano on the REMINDS requirements monitoring infrastructure.
