CDL MEVSS (2013-2020)

Welcome to the Christian Doppler Laboratory on Monitoring and Evolution of Very-Large-Scale Software Systems! The Christian Doppler Laboratory for Monitoring and Evolution of Very-Large-Scale Software Systems was started on February 1, 2013. After 7 successful years, the lab reached the planned end of its operation by the end of January 2020. However, a phasing-out period … Continue reading CDL MEVSS (2013-2020)

Concepts of variation control systems

Authors: Lukas Linsbauer, Felix Schwägerl, Thorsten Berger, Paul Grünbacher Abstract: Version control systems are an integral part of today’s software engineering. They facilitate the collaborative management of revisions (sequential versions) and variants (concurrent versions) of software systems under development. Typical version control systems maintain revisions of files and variants of whole software systems. Variants are … Continue reading Concepts of variation control systems

Evaluating an Interactive Memory Analysis Tool: Findings from a Cognitive Walkthrough and a User Study

Evaluating an Interactive Memory Analysis Tool: Findings from a Cognitive Walkthrough and a User Study Authors: Markus Weninger, Paul Grünbacher, Elias Gander, Andreas Schörgenhumer Abstract: Memory analysis tools are essential for finding and fixing anomalies in the memory usage of software systems (e.g., memory leaks). Although numerous tools are available, hardly any empirical studies exist … Continue reading Evaluating an Interactive Memory Analysis Tool: Findings from a Cognitive Walkthrough and a User Study
