Download Extreme Programming and Agile Methods - XP/Agile Universe by Barry Boehm, Richard Turner (auth.), Frank Maurer, Don Wells PDF

By Barry Boehm, Richard Turner (auth.), Frank Maurer, Don Wells (eds.)

XPAgileUniverse2003isthethirdconferenceinaseriesrunninginNorthA- rica and attracting contributors from around the globe who're attracted to the study, improvement and alertness of agile software program tactics. Agile app- aches price humans and interplay over methods and instruments – relocating software program engineering from the process-oriented software program improvement techniques of the Nineties in the direction of people-oriented techniques that we're commencing to see a growing number of during this decade. Agile techniques pressure a holistic view of software program deve- pers as being taken with research, layout, implementation and checking out actions, whereas extra conventional, tayloristic methods separate those projects and assign them to di?erent “resources. ” Tayloristic methods create knowledge-sharing difficulties as details amassed through one individual should be passed over – frequently within the type of documentation – to the following individual within the chain. Agile techniques lessen the variety of hand-o?s and, hence, reduce the volume of required documentation for wisdom sharing. whereas deemed a novelty just a couple of years in the past, agile equipment are actually be- ming verified within the software program and are being utilized in additional and extra software domain names. whereas agile techniques circulation into the mainstream of software program firms, we're purely now commencing to comprehend their bene?ts, components of applicability, and in addition their risks. This year’s convention increases this knowing and supply a greater base for practitioners as they investigate the e?ectiveness of agile tools of their environment.

By Alun Preece (auth.), Matthias Klusch, Koen V. Hindriks, Mike P. Papazoglou, Leon Sterling (eds.)

These are the complaints of the eleventh overseas Workshop on Cooperative info brokers (CIA 2007), held on the Delft college of know-how, The Netherlands, September 19–21, 2007. Intoday’sworldofubiquitouslyconnectedheterogeneousinformationsystems and computing units, the clever coordination and provision of suitable added-value details at any time, anyplace is of key value to a va- ety of purposes. This problem is estimated to be coped with by way of applicable clever and cooperative details brokers. a data agent is a computational software program entity that has entry to at least one or a number of heterogeneous and geographically dispersed facts and infor- tion resources. It pro-actively searches for and keeps details on behalf of its human clients, or different brokers ideally simply in time. In different phrases, it really is dealing with and overcoming the di?culties linked to info overload in open, pervasive details and repair landscapes. every one component to a contemporary cooperative details method is represented by way of a suitable clever info agent in a position to resolving method and semantic heterogeneities in a given context on call for. Cooperative infor- tion brokers are meant to accomplish either person and shared joint objectives counting on the particular consumer personal tastes according to given or deduced limits of time, funds and assets to be had. One significant problem of constructing age- dependent clever info platforms in open environments just like the web and the net is to stability the autonomy of networked facts, info, and information assets with the capability payo?s of leveraging them by way of cooperative and clever details agents.

Download Coordination Languages and Models: 4th International by Stéphane Ducasse, Thomas Hofmann, Oscar Nierstrasz (auth.), PDF

By Stéphane Ducasse, Thomas Hofmann, Oscar Nierstrasz (auth.), António Porto, Gruia-Catalin Roman (eds.)

This quantity comprises the complaints of the Fourth foreign convention on Coordination types and Languages, Coordination 2000. It was once held within the wake of 3 profitable past meetings whose court cases have been additionally p- lished during this sequence, in volumes 1061, 1282 and 1594. the necessity for elevated programmer productiveness and fast improvement of advanced structures offers pragmatic motivation for the advance of coordination languages and m- els. The highbrow pleasure linked to such endeavors is rooted within the decades-old wish to deal with more and more larger degrees of abstraction. Coordination-based equipment supply a fresh separation among person so- ware elements and their interactions in the total software program association. This separation gives you to make program improvement extra tractable, to help worldwide research, and to augment software program reuse. those are certainly significant issues within the details age, at a time whilst all features of society are depending, to an ever expanding measure, on software program platforms of unparalleled complexity. study on coordination equipment is probably going to play a primary function in addressing those technological issues by means of altering the software program tradition round us and via resulting in the improvement of e?ective technical recommendations for a huge variety of significant problems.
