Chen, C. (author)
In this thesis, we have focused on applying Spectrum-based Fault Localization (SFL) to diagnose Service-Oriented Systems at runtime. We reused a framework-based online monitoring technique to obtain the service transaction information. We devised a three-phased oracle and combined this with monitoring to detect system failures at runtime. Both...

Marin, A.M. (author)
Evolution of software systems accounts for the largest part of their lifecycle and costs. Software engineers therefore, more often than developing new systems, work on complex, existing ones that they have to understand in order to modify them. Understanding such systems requires insight into the various concerns the systems implement, many of...

Graaf, B.S. (author)
Software evolves continuously. As a consequence, software systems tend to become increasingly complex and, as such, more difficult to change. A software system's complexity is for a large part determined by its structure, or architecture. In this thesis we investigate how to reduce the risks and costs associated with the evolution of software...

Mesbah, A. (author)
This dissertation has focused on better understanding the shifting web paradigm and the consequences of moving from the classical multi-page model to an Ajax-based single-page style. Specifically to that end, this work has examined this new class of software from three main software engineering perspectives. Software Architecture: to gain an...

This dissertation presents research on techniques, methods, and tool support for domain-specific language engineering. Domain-specific language engineering is the discipline of designing, developing, and maintaining domain-specific programming languages. The focus of this thesis is the architecture of language workbenches their underlying...

Van der Burg, S. (author)
Nowadays, software systems are bigger and more complicated than people may think. Apart from the fact that a system has to be correctly constructed and should meet the client's wishes, they also have to be made ready for use to end-users or in an isolated test environment. This process is known as the software deployment process. Due to various...

Greiler, M.S. (author)
The two main topics of this dissertation are plug-in-based systems and test suite comprehension. In particular, challenges during testing plug-in-based systems are revealed, and reverse engineering based techniques to support developers during test suite comprehension are presented.

Boogerd, C.J. (author)
Automatic Code Inspection tools help developers in early detection of defects in software. A well-known drawback of many automatic inspection approaches is that they yield too many warnings and require a clearer focus. In this thesis, we provide such focus by proposing two methods to prioritize inspection results, based on the execution...

Hermans, F.F.J. (author)
Spreadsheets are used extensively in industry: they are the number one tool for financial analysis and are also prevalent in other domains, such as logistics and planning. Their flexibility and immediate feedback make them easy to use for non-programmers. But as easy as spreadsheets are to build, so difficult can they be to analyze and adapt....

Bezemer, C. (author)
Multi-tenant software systems are Software-as-a-Service systems in which customers (or tenants) share the same resources. The key characteristics of multi-tenancy are hardware resource sharing, a high degree of configurability and a shared application and database instance. We can deduct from these characteristics that they lead to challenges...

Vermolen, S.D. (author)
Software plays a critical role in our daily life. Vast amounts of money are spent on more and more complex systems. All software, regardless if it controls a plane or the game on your phone is never finished. Software changes when it contains bugs or when new functionality is added. This process of change is called software eovlution. Despite...

Heck, P.M. (author)
The goal of this thesis was to obtain a deeper understanding of the notion of quality for Just-in-Time (JIT) Requirements. JIT requirements are the opposite of up-front requirements. JIT requirements are not analyzed or defined until they are needed meaning that development is allowed to begin with incomplete requirements. We started our...

De Jonge, M. (author)
The goal of this dissertation is to develop techniques that simplify the implementation of tool support for new languages. More specifically, we focus on language-parametric solutions for the implementation of language-specific editor support. In the first part of this dissertation we investigate generic techniques to recover from syntax errors...

Romano, D. (author)
Analyzing the Change-Proneness of APIs and web APIs APIs and web APIs are used to expose existing business logic and, hence, to ease the reuse of functionalities across multiple software systems. Software systems can use the business logic of legacy systems by binding their APIs and web APIs. With the emergence of a new programming paradigm...

Espinha, T. (author)
At an implementation level, web services serve the basic purpose of message exchange between potentially heterogeneous software systems. Through abstracting language- and platform-specific implementations into text-based, human-readable XML and JSON-based formats, different software systems are able to execute procedures and retrieve data from...

Raemaekers, S.B.A. (author)
Third-party libraries are used frequently in modern software development. Websites that are visited millions of times a day often make heavy use of open-source software libraries. As a software developer, using these libraries has a number of advantages. Developers save time and effort because functionality does not have to be rebuilt from...

Cornelissen, S.G.M. (author)
Program comprehension is an essential part of software development and software maintenance, as software must be sufficiently understood before it can be properly modified. One of the common approaches in getting to understand a program is the study of its execution, also known as dynamic analysis. While many such approaches have been proposed...

Bruntink, M. (author)
Crosscutting concerns are phenomena that are present in almost any (embedded) software system. They arise if the implementation of a concern "a requirement or design decision" does not fit neatly into the modular decomposition of a software system. A crosscutting concern cannot be confined to a single modular unit and therefore becomes scattered...

Bouwers, E.M. (author)
Software systems make up an important part of our daily lives. Just like all man- made objects, the possibilities of a software system are constrained by the choices made during its creation. The complete set of these choices can be referred to as the software architecture of a system. Since the software architecture of a system has a large...
