Managing Quality Properties of Web Service Compositions
Web services from different partners can be combined to applications that realize a more complex business goal. Such applications built as Web service compositions define how interactions between Web services take place in order to implement the business logic. Web service compositions not only have to provide the desired functionality but also have to comply with certain Quality of Service (QoS) levels. Maximizing the users' satisfaction, also reflected as Quality of Experience (QoE), is a primary goal to be achieved ...
Regelbasiertes Reasoning auf massiv paralleler Hardware
Eine wesentliche Funktionalität bei der Verwendung semantischer Technologien besteht in dem als Reasoning bezeichneten Prozess des Ableitens von impliziten Fakten aus einer explizit gegebenen Wissensbasis. Der Vorgang des Reasonings stellt vor dem Hintergrund der stetig wachsenden Menge an (semantischen) Informationen zunehmend eine Herausforderung in Bezug auf die notwendigen Ressourcen sowie der Ausführungsgeschwindigkeit dar. Um diesen Herausforderungen zu begegnen, adressiert die vorliegende Arbeit das Reasoning ...
Dynamic Injection of Scribble Features into Graphical Diagram Editors
Almost everyone sketches. People use sketches day in and day out in many different and heterogeneous fields, to share their thoughts and clarify ambiguous interpretations, for example. The media used to sketch varies from analog tools like flipcharts to digital tools like smartboards. Whereas analog tools are usually affected by insufficient editing capabilities like cut/copy/paste, digital tools greatly support these scenarios. Digital tools can be grouped into informal and formal tools. Informal tools can be ...
Gone with the internet - How the old education was lost
Despite its young history, Computer Science Education has seen a number of "revolutions". Being a veteran in the field, the author reflects on the many changes he has seen in computing and its teaching. The intent of this personal collection is to point out that most revolutions came unforeseen and that many of the new learning initiatives, despite high financial input, ultimately failed. The author then considers the current revolution (MOOC, inverted lectures, peer instruction, game design) and, based on the ...
This thesis aims at empowering software customers with a tool to build software tests them selves, based on a gradual refinement of natural language scenarios into executable visual test models. The process is divided in five steps: 1. First, a natural language parser is used to extract a graph of grammatical relations from the textual scenario descriptions. 2. The resulting graph is transformed into an informal story pattern by interpreting structurization rules based on Fujaba Story Diagrams. 3. While the ...
