Software Sustainability

This book focuses on software sustainability, regarded in terms of how software is or can be developed while taking into consideration environmental, social, and economic dimensions. The sixteen chapters cover various related issues ranging from technical aspects like energy-efficient programming techniques, formal proposals related to energy efficiency measurement, patterns to build energy-efficient software, the role of developers on energy efficient software systems and tools for detecting and refactoring code smells/energy bugs; to human aspects like its impact on software sustainability or the adaptation of ACM/IEEE guidelines for student and professional education and; and an economics-driven architectural evaluation for sustainability. Also aspects as the elements of governance and management that organizations should consider when implementing, assessing and improving Green IT or the relationship between software sustainability and the Corporate Social Responsibility of software companies are included.

Gamificación y su aplicación a la Ingeniería del Software  

Gamification, understood as the application of gaming techniques in non-game environments, is one of the most important trends for this decade. But we have to be aware that the implementation of gamification is relatively recent, so we still have a lot to learn both in terms of how to introduce it in organisations and the technological and psychological issues that can determine its success. This book aims to be a first step on this path, contributing to the dissemination of gamification, which can bring so many benefits to our lives. This book is a practical guide to the fundamentals of web development with MERN, providing the reader with the essential tools to get started and delve into all the key tasks to help you get started, learn, understand and implement complete full-stack web applications using the MERN technology stack.

Desarrollo de Software Dirigido por Modelos: Conceptos, métodos y herramientas  

Over the past decade, Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) has emerged as a new step on the way to a true industrialisation of software production. After the success of object-oriented technology, the systematic use of models is now presented as the appropriate way to achieve programming at a higher level of abstraction and to increase the level of automation. In our research work and in projects with companies, we have seen the potential of models to increase levels of abstraction and automation. Therefore, we are fully convinced that DEM concepts, methods and techniques facilitate the creation and evolution of software. This book provides a detailed explanation of the basic concepts of DEM, as well as examples of each type of application and a presentation of the most commonly used tools, so that you can acquire the necessary knowledge to start practising DEM.

Fábrica de Software: Experiencias, Tecnologías y Organización  

The concept of the software factory is now more than forty years old, since it was first mentioned by Bemer in 1968, when he stated that: we seem to have few specific environments (factory facilities) for the economic production of programs. A year later, the first software factory was established: Hitachi Software Works. Since then, the term software factory denotes the development and maintenance of software in a way that is comparable to the production of other industrial products, albeit with the peculiarities of the software itself. However, industrialising software manufacturing has proven to reduce costs and product lifecycle, improving the quality of the software.

Medición y Estimación del Software: Técnicas y métodos para mejorar la calidad y la productividad  

Measurement has a long tradition and is a fundamental discipline in any engineering discipline, and Software Engineering should not be an exception, although the peculiarities that differentiate software from other products must always be kept in mind. Software measurement is a young discipline, and this has had a significant influence on the fact that software engineering has not yet reached the degree of maturity that other engineering disciplines have. However, few nowadays doubt the importance of measurement for increasing quality and productivity in software development and maintenance. The need and motivation to measure has increased notably with the concern of organisations to achieve higher levels of maturity and the consequent certifications based on models and standards such as ISO 9000, ISO 15504 or CMMI. Indeed, in order to ensure that a process has a certain degree of quality and to improve it, it is necessary to apply the corresponding indicators. Furthermore, software measurement allows us to control what happens in projects and to predict their effort and duration, as well as to improve software products.

Object-Oriented Design Knowledge: Principles, Heuristics and Best Practices.

In order to properly understand a field, a researcher has to first understand the accumulated knowledge of that field. Micro-architectural design has accumulated knowledge elements that are clearly defined. These elements, such as design patterns, are properly differentiated and generally understood, but other elements such as heuristics, best practices, and others are just vague concepts. Object-Oriented Design Knowledge: Principles, Heuristics and Best Practices provides a unified and global vision about the lesser-defined areas of micro-architectural design knowledge, exposing the main techniques, experiences, and methods in order to help researchers apply these concepts. Understanding the experiences presented in this book will help readers correctly apply design knowledge.

This book, while providing an integrated overview of fuzzy database constructs, serves as an introduction to fuzzy logic, fuzzy databases and fuzzy modelling in databases.
AUTHORS: Urrutia , Angélica; Piattini Velthuis, Mario



Metrics for Software Conceptual Models

The idea that “measuring quality is the key to developing high-quality software systems” is gaining relevance. Moreover, it is widely recognised that the key to obtaining better software systems is to measure the quality characteristics of early artefacts, produced at the conceptual modelling phase. Therefore, improving the quality of conceptual models is a major step towards the improvement of software system development.Since the 1970s, software engineers had been proposing high quantities of metrics for software products, processes and resources but had not been paying any special attention to conceptual modelling. By the mid-1990s, however, the need for metrics for conceptual modelling had emerged.

The aim of the book is to provide readers with a practical knowledge of the subject, without, however, lacking adequate theoretical rigour. To this end, the fundamental concepts of databases are presented in a clear and precise manner, offering a systematic treatment of the three most widespread conventional data models on the market: hierarchical, codasyl and relational. It also explains the extended E/R model, emphasising the importance of a conceptual model, providing methodological principles to help the designer to carry out a good conceptual design and also providing a solid theoretical basis, the theory of normalisation to the logical design of databases. Included with the book is a diskette on which various normalisation algorithms are programmed.
