    A brief overview of the paper is given next

    Cloud-based testing introduces a new set of challenges. While many companies are approaching cloud computing with cautious, testing appears to be next area of growing interest. This paper propose the development of a new framework focusing on cloud testing. We intend to define the activities, roles, techniques, and tools that will be used in an integrated framework. A research methodology containing all the steps that will be executed during the proposal implementation was defined. A schedule was suggested in order to allow the research development. We propose a new Cloud Testing framework and we present the research methodology and schedule that will be used to implement the proposal.

    A brief overview of the paper is given next

    The smart cities concept arises from the need to manage, automate, optimize and explore all aspects of a city that could be improved. For this purpose it is necessary to build a robust architecture that satisfies a minimal number of requirements such as distributed sensing, integrated management and flexibility.

    Several architectures have been proposed with different goals, but none of them met satisfactorily the needs that permeate smart cities.

    In this work various architectures are discussed, highlighting the main requirements that they aim to fulfill. Furthermore, based on different architectures with the most varied purposes, a set of requirements for the implementation of a smart city is presented and discussed.

  • INES at Seventh International Conference on Software Engineering Advances (ICSEA 2012) – Part II

    Publicado em September 12th, 2012Publications

    INES researchers had two papers accepted for publication in the 7th International Conference on Software Engineering Advances (ICSEA) 2012:

    1) “Evaluating performance of distributed systems with MapReduce and application traffic analysis” authored by Thiago Vieira, Paulo Fernando Soares, Marco Machado, Rodrigo Assad and Vinicius Garcia; and,

    2) “A Systematic Mapping Study on Domain-Specific Languages” authored by Leandro Nascimento, Daniel Viana, Paulo Silveira Neto, Dhiego Martins, Vinicius Garcia and Silvio Meira.

    Both papers are part of the research activities being performed in the project “Social Machines and Research Team – SMaRT”. We are gathering other members in this research group and creating a new one with a more general proposal, called Advanced Software Systems Engineering and Research Technologies (ASSERT): www.assertlab.com

    The conference will be held in November 18-23, 2012 – Lisbon, Portugal.

    A brief overview of both papers is given next:

    1) Abstract. Test, monitoring and evaluation of distributed systems at runtime is a difficult effort, due the dynamicity of the environment, the large amount of data exchanged between the nodes and the difficulty of reproduce an error for debugging. Application traffic analysis is a method to evaluate distributed systems, but the capacity of analyze large amount of data is a challenge. This paper proposes and evaluates the use of MapReduce programming model to deep packet inspection the application traffic of distributed systems, evaluating the effectiveness and the processing capacity of the MapReduce programming model for deep packet inspection of a JXTA distributed storage application, in order to measure performance indicators.

    2) Abstract. Domain-Specific Languages (DSLs) offer substantial gains in expressiveness and ease of use compared with general purpose languages. This way, DSLs have gained significant attention in industry and academy, as can be seen by the increased number of related publications in key conferences and journals. This paper aims to provide a broad view of the DSL research field by performing a Systematic Mapping Study. Adopting a detailed search strategy, 4450 studies were initially identified, and, after filtering, 1440 primary studies were selected and categorized using a particular classification scheme. So, this work presents the most popular application domains where DSLs have been applied, identifies different tools for handling DSLs, including language workbenches, and enumerates several techniques, methods and/or processes for dealing with DSLs.

    The paper “SMADL – The Social Machines Architecture Description Language” authored by Leandro Nascimento, Vinicius Garcia and Silvio Meira has been accepted for publication in the Doctoral Symposium of the 5th International Conference on Software Language Engineering (SLE) 2012 in Dresden, Germany.

    The conference will be held in September 25-28, 2012 and will be co-located with other well conferences in the area: 11th Generative Programming and Component Engineering Conference (GPCE’12) and the 4th International Workshop on Feature-Oriented Software Development (FOSD’12).

    This activity is part of the project “Social Machines and Research Team – SMaRT” and is one of the results of the PhD research being done by Leandro Nascimento.

    In order to give a brief overview of the paper, here is the abstract: We are experiencing a high growth in the number of web applications being developed. This is happening mainly because the web is going into a new phase, called programmable web, where several web-based systems make their APIs publicly available. In order to deal with the complexity of this emerging web, we define a notion of social machine and envisage a language that can describe networks of such. To start with, social machines are defined as tuples of input, output, processes, constraints, states, requests and responses; apart from defining the machines themselves, the language defines a set of connectors and conditionals that can be used to describe the interactions between any number of machines in a multitude of ways, as a means to represent real machines interacting in the real web. This work presents a preliminary version of the Social Machine Architecture Description Language (SMADL).

    The paper “Implementing Web Applications as Social Machines Composition: a Case Study”, was accepted for publication at 24th International Conference on Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering (SEKE). This activity is part of the project  S.Ma.R.T – Social Machines Research Team.


    With the evolution of the web and the concepts of web 3.0, as known as programmable web, several issues need to be studied in order to develop, deploy and use this new kind of application in a more effective way, such as communication between systems, unstructured data and non-scalable protocols, among others issues. In this regard, a seminal paper named The Emerging Web of Social Machines proposes a new way to describe and model web based information systems, that is, an arrangement of Social Machines that interact for a common purpose. Due to the fact that the Social Machines’ model is a new concept, it needs to be applied and validated in practice by developing applications based on it, mainly for detecting problems and proposing improvements. In this way, we performed a case study which implements a web application that is a composition of several public and well-known services from different application domains, such as Wikipedia, Flickr, Twitter, Google Places and Google Maps, following the Social Machines’ model. In the end, we present the results and some suggestions for improvement.
