Automated test generation tools have been widely investigated with the goal of reducing the cost of testing activities. However, generated tests have been shown not to help developers in detecting and finding more bugs even though they reach higher structural coverage compared to manual testing. The main reason is that generated tests are...

Web APIs provide a systematic and extensible approach for application-toapplication interaction. Developers using web APIs are forced to accompany the API providers in their software evolution tasks. In order to understand the distress caused by this imposition on web API client developers we perform a semi-structured interview with six such...

In the pull-based development model, the integrator has the crucial role of managing and integrating contributions. This work focuses on the role of the integrator and investigates working habits and challenges alike. We set up an exploratory qualitative study involving a large-scale survey involving 749 integrators, to which we add quantitative...

Web APIs provide a systematic and extensible approach for application-to-application interaction. A large number of mobile applications makes use of web APIs to integrate services into apps. Each Web API’s evolution pace is determined by their respective developer and mobile application developers are forced to accompany the API providers in...

Regression testing can be done by re-executing a test suite on different software versions and comparing the outcome. For functional testing, the outcome of such tests is either pass (correct behaviour) or fail (incorrect behaviour). For non-functional testing, such as performance testing, this is more challenging as correct and incorrect are...

Automated testing is a basic principle of agile development. Its benefits include early defect detection, defect cause localization and removal of fear to apply changes to the code. Therefore, maintaining high quality test code is essential. This study introduces a model that assesses test code quality by combining source code metrics that...

Verification activities are necessary to ensure that the requirements are specified in a correct way. However, until now requirements verification research has focused on traditional up-front requirements. Agile or just-in-time requirements are by definition incomplete, not specific and might be ambiguous when initially specified, indicating a...

Preprint submitted to Elsevier. The goal of performance maintenance is to improve the performance of a software system after delivery. As the performance of a system is often characterized by unexpected combinations of metric values, manual analysis of performance is hard in complex systems. In this paper, we propose an approach that helps...

We mined the issue database of GNOME to assess how issues are handled. How many issues are submitted and resolved? Does the backlog grow or decrease? How fast are issues resolved? Does issue resolution speed increase or decrease over time? In which subproject are issues handled most efficiently? To answer such questions, we apply several...

In order to determine whether there is a gap between the current state-of-the-practice and state-of-the-art in software engineering, we performed a broad survey among Dutch software producing organizations. Our survey covers aspects of the software engineering cycle ranging from requirements engineering, over design and implementation to testing...

The performance of a software system directly influences customer satisfaction. Self-adaptiveness can contribute to this customer satisfaction by (1) taking appropriate measures when the performance becomes critical, e.g., the system load is too high, or (2) scheduling intensive tasks when the load is low. We investigate how self-adaptive...

One of the key factors in customer satisfaction is application performance. To be able to guarantee good performance, it is necessary to take appropriate measures before a server overload occurs. While in small systems it is usually possible to predict server overload using a subjective human expert, an automated overload prediction mechanism is...
