XML Import software lets you do exactly that. Instead of creating the same
column week after week, you can create it once, populate it with formatted
placeholders, and then automatically import the list of books each week.
Before you can understand how placeholders work, you need to understand
how XML and DTDs work.
Geo-electrical tomographical software plays a crucial role in geophysical research. However, imported software is expensive and does not provide much customizability, which is essential for more advanced geophysical study. Besides, these programs are unable to exploit the full potential of modern hardware, so the running time is inadequate for large-scale geophysical surveys. It is therefore an essential task to develop domestic software for overcoming all these problems.
Subversion sets the standard in version control systems. Championed by open-source developers, Subversion is behind some of today's biggest and most important software, including Apache, FreeBSD, Ruby, and MediaWiki. But more than just a tool for open-source collaboration, Subversion has made a significant impact in the corporate IT world. Most developers will now encounter Subversion source control during their career.
For almost three decades, Roger Pressman's Software Engineering: A Practitioner's Approach has been the world's leading textbook in software engineering. The new seventh edition represents a major restructuring and update of previous editions, solidifying the book's position as the most comprehensive guide to this important subject.
This book offers a concise introduction to the art of building simulation software, collecting the most important concepts and algorithms in one place. Written for both individuals new to the field of modeling and simulation as well as experienced practitioners, this guide explains the design and implementation of simulation software used in the engineering of large systems while presenting the relevant mathematical elements, concept discussions, and code development.
Grid computing combines aspects from parallel computing, distributed computing and data management,
and has been playing an important role in pushing forward the state-of-the-art in computer
science and information technologies. There is considerable interest in Grid computing
at present, with a significant number of Grid projects being launched across the world.
Of all the controversies surrounding the current U.S. patent system– – and there are many– – the debate over intellectual property rights in high-technology industries is one of the most strident. Both software and biotechnology are dynamic, fast growing, and increasingly important fields. Creating the right incentives for innovation in these key industries is not just a matter of academic debate; the issue has real implications for the growth of the economy.
“New systems generate new problems.” —Murphy’s Technological Laws #17 0.1 An Important Event
On October 19, 1998, the Executive Council of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) approved a document titled “The Software Engineering Code of Ethics and Professional Practice”. A few months later, the Board of Governors of the Computer Society of the Institute for Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE-CS) did the same.
Export and Import Utilities
The Export utility provides a simple way for you to transfer data objects between Oracle databases, even if they reside on platforms with different hardware and software configurations.
When you run Export against an Oracle database, objects (such as tables) are extracted, followed by their related objects (such as indexes, comments, and grants), if any. The extracted data is written to an Export file, which is an Oracle binary-format dump file that is typically located on disk or tape.
Assessing the quality of user generated content is an important problem for many web forums. While quality is currently assessed manually, we propose an algorithm to assess the quality of forum posts automatically and test it on data provided by Nabble.com. We use state-of-the-art classiﬁcation techniques and experiment with ﬁve feature classes: Surface, Lexical, Syntactic, Forum speciﬁc and Similarity features. We achieve an accuracy of 89% on the task of automatically assessing post quality in the software domain using forum speciﬁc features.
Systems Analysis and Design: Chapter 16 - Quality Assurance Through Software Engineering's Objectives is Recognize the importance of users and analysts taking a total quality approach to the entire SDLC; Create structure charts to design modular, top-down systems.
Software Engineering: Chapter 10 - Software Evolution includes about Software change, Importance of evolution, A spiral model of development and evolution, Evolution and servicing, Evolution processes, Change identification and evolution processes, Change implementation.
Software Engineering: Chapter 1 - Introduction presents about Software products, FAQs about software engineering, Essential attributes of good software, Software engineering, Importance of software engineering, Software process activities and somethings else.
Problems arise in integration even of well-designed modules and components. Integration testing aims to uncover interaction and compatibility problems as early as possible. This chapter presents integration testing strategies, including the increasingly important problem of testing integration with commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components, libraries, and frameworks.
In this chapter you will learn: Understand the purposes and importance of documentation, identify some key quality documents and their relations, understand the structure and content of key quality documents, appreciate needs and opportunities for automatically generating and managing documentation.
The software engineer’s job is to solve problems economically by developing high-quality software. In this first chapter we will present important issues that all software engineers should understand to do their jobs well. In this chapter you will learn about the following: How does software differ from other products? How does software change over time? What do we mean when we talk about high-quality software? What types of software are there and what are their main differences? How are software projects organized? How successful are typical projects?...
Chapter 3 - Basing software development on reusable technology. In this chapter you will learn about the following: Frameworks, reusable software subsystems that implement important facilities which many applications can use; the client–server architecture, an important way of designing programs in which the software is divided into two main parts: a client program which runs on each user’s computer, and a server program with which each user’s client communicates in order to obtain services; a client–server framework written in Java.
Disciplined attention to requirements analysis, modeling and design helps produce good quality software that solves the customers’ problems. However, any human activity, no matter how carefully performed, will involve mistakes. It is therefore necessary to verify meticulously that the system performs as required. In this chapter we discuss two important verification techniques, testing and inspection. We will also put these in the context of quality assurance as a whole.
Chapter 9 – Software evolution. The objectives of this chapter are to explain why software evolution is an important part of software engineering and to describe software evolution processes. When you have read this chapter, you will: understand that change is inevitable if software systems are to remain useful and that software development and evolution may be integrated in a spiral model; understand software evolution processes and influences on these processes.
Chapter 11 – Security and dependability. The objective of this chapter is to introduce software dependability and security. When you have read this chapter, you will: understand why dependability and security are usually more important than the functional characteristics of a software system; understand the four principal dimensions of dependability, namely availability, reliability, safety, and security; be aware of the specialized terminology that is used when discussing security and dependability;...
