Comparative evaluation of command distribution via DDS and CORBA in a software reference architecture

Duran, Mustafa Berk
Communication between modules in distributed system architectures plays a crucial role in proper system operation. Therefore, selection of the method for the communication of software running on di erent platforms becomes important. Two of the alternatives for data distribution are the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) and Data-Distribution Service (DDS). In this study, e ects of the selection on the Overall software quality and performance are investigated for real-time embedded systems developed in conformance with a software reference architecture. For the purposes of this study, a benchmark project was prepared according to the application domain requirements and software reference architecture of the software engineering department. Four test cases were designed to animate possible scenarios that the system might come across. Test cases employ di fferent numbers of user interfaces as peers, either as command sources or as display panels used in the project. Methods are evaluated in terms of software quality and performance metrics. Software quality metrics are collected under coupling and complexity measurements whereas utilization and latency are measured for evaluation of software performance.


Local search versus Path Relinking in metaheuristics: Redesigning Meta-RaPS with application to the multidimensional knapsack problem
Arin, Arif; Rabadi, Ghaith (Elsevier BV, 2016-09-01)
Most heuristics for discrete optimization problems consist of two phases: a greedy-based construction phase followed by an improvement (local search) phase. Although the best solutions are usually generated after the improvement phase, there is usually a high computational cost for employing a local search algorithm. This paper seeks another alternative to reduce the computational burden of a local search while keeping solution quality by embedding intelligence in metaheuristics. A modified version of Path ...
Model-based code generation for HLA federates
Adak, Mehmet; Topcu, Okan; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S. (Wiley, 2010-02-01)
This paper addresses the problem of automated code generation for a High Level Architecture compliant federate application given its behavior model. The behavior model is a part of the architectural model of a federation that the federate can participate in. The federate behavior model is based on Live Sequence Charts, adopted as the behavioral specification formalism in the Federation Architecture Metamodel (FAMM). FAMM serves as a formal language for describing federation architectures. An objective is to...
Testing effectiveness and effort in software product lines
Çöteli, Mert Burkay; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
Software product lines (SPL) aim to decrease the total software development cost by the help of reusability and variability. However, the increasing number of variations for the delivery types of products would result in increasing cost of the verification and validation process. Total testing cost of development can also be decreased by reusing test cases and scripts. The main objective of this study is to increase testing effectiveness while minimizing testing effort. Four different cases consisting of As...
Data integration over horizontally partitioned databases in service-oriented data grids
Sunercan, Hatice Kevser Sönmez; Çiçekli, Fehime Nihan; Alpdemir, Mahmut Nedim; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
Information integration over distributed and heterogeneous resources has been challenging in many terms: coping with various kinds of heterogeneity including data model, platform, access interfaces; coping with various forms of data distribution and maintenance policies, scalability, performance, security and trust, reliability and resilience, legal issues etc. It is obvious that each of these dimensions deserves a separate thread of research efforts. One particular challenge among the ones listed above tha...
Standalone static binary executable rewriting for software protection
Bican, Özgür Saygın; Şehitoğlu, Onur Tolga; Department of Computer Engineering (2015)
This study introduces a static binary rewriting method for improving security of executable binaries. For software security, when the network and host-based precautions are passed by the adversary or they are not present at all, the software has to defend itself. Nevertheless, applying software protection methods during software development requires extra source code development and know-how. Furthermore, these methods inherently make the software undesirably complex. Applying these methods after compilatio...
