Business-process-centered Approaches to Software Architecture: A Systematic Mapping Study

  Businesses nowadays integrate software systems to support their business processes. Since business processes often must be adapted to changing business requirements, the supporting software systems need to be evaluated and evolved accordingly. To ease such efforts, theories and approaches have been developed to align software architecture with dynamic business… Read more

Development of an Automated Combinatorial Testing Framework

Combinatorial testing is a sophisticated testing technique to reduce the amount of testing that would be necessary for exhaustive testing while still providing a similar value. It does so by specifying the coverage criterion, that all t combinations of input values of a system should be covered by a test… Read more

Usage-based Discovery of a Fragmentation for a Distributed Database

Fragmentation is an important aspect of the design of a distributed database (DDB). Many approaches exploit knowledge about the applications that are using the database (DB) to find the perfect split of the DB. Finding a fragmentation where this knowledge is not at hand can be difficult. However, if the… Read more

Framework for the technical layer in behavior-driven development

Framework for the technical layer in behavior-driven development Abstract Automated end-to-end tests allow to check the correct functioning of web applications but introduce effort for developing and maintaining the tests. The effort is increased when a core software is tailored to customer needs resulting in multiple variations. The scenario-based testing… Read more

Developing an Operator Framework for Kubernetes

Operators are a concept that allow the integration of application specific knowledge into Kubernetes. An operator extends the Kubernetes API by creating a custom resource and it’s implementation in form of a custom controller. The operator needs to be notified on changes of API objects in order to adjust the… Read more

State of the Art in Defensive Programming

Software is now important in almost all areas of society and is used by almost everyone everywhere. Dependence on software and the need for developers to secure their code is increasing very rapidly in times of growing cybersecurity threats. Errors can have serious consequences, which is why software needs to… Read more

Industrial IoT: Edge Device App Store & Digital Twins

Manufacturing companies need to be more efficient, productive and achieve new environmental standards while still providing low-cost products with regard to the competition. A digital production enables large-scale productivity gains, but also requires large amounts of data. As production environments are inherently heterogeneous it is often not easy to record… Read more

A Large-Scale Industrial Case Study of Continuous Delivery with JARVIS

A Large Scale Industrial Case Study of Continuous Delivery with JARVIS Motivated by current problems in continuous delivery the JARVIS continuous delivery reference  architecture was developed. Such problems are for example complex delivery processes that are not efficiently supported by the delivery system. This thesis evaluates the concepts of… Read more

Java-based Combinatorial Test Modeling

Combinatorial testing is a black-box testing technique, which detects failures in the system under test. It reduces the number of test cases compared to exhaustive testing by applying combination strategies. Many generation algorithms and combinatorial testing tools have already been developed. Recent studies have focused on the integration of combinatorial… Read more
