Investigation of the effects of structural characteristics of object-oriented software on fault-proneness

Gölcük, Halit
This study investigates the effects of structural characteristics of object-oriented software, which are observable at the model level of the software developed by means of Unified Modeling Language (UML), on software quality, assessing quality in terms of fault-proneness. In the scope of this thesis study, real-time embedded software components developed by Aselsan, a leading defense industry company in Turkey, were analyzed. The correlation between software metrics measured from the UML models of the software components and fault-proneness metrics of those software components were presented both graphically and statistically.


Development of a library for automated verification of UML models
Çelik, Makbule Filiz; Koçyiğit, Altan; Department of Information Systems (2006)
Software designs are mostly modeled as Unified Modeling Language (UML) diagrams when object oriented software development is concerned. Some popular topics in the industry such as Model Driven Development, generating test cases automatically in the early phases of software development, automated generation of code from design model etc. use the benefits of UML designs. All of these topics have something in common which is the need for accuracy against the meta-model not to face problems in the latter phases...
An Approach to manage variability in object-oriented applications with feature models
Bulut, Ender; Şener, Cevat; Department of Computer Engineering (2014)
In this thesis, an approach to manage variability in object-oriented applications by using a feature modeling language and a simple source code generation technique has been designed and developed. This approach provides developing configurable object oriented applications in a practical way. That is, an application developed with our approach takes just a configuration file including user selections in a pre-defined domain as input and then automatically configure and manage itself with respect to these se...
An Automated defect detection approach for cosmic functional size measurement
Yılmaz, Gökçen; Demirörs, Onur; Department of Information Systems (2012)
Software size measurement provides a basis for software project management and plays an important role for its activities such as project management estimations, process benchmarking, and quality control. As size can be measured with functional size measurement (FSM) methods in the early phases of the software projects, functionality is one of the most frequently used metric. On the other hand, FSMs are being criticized by being subjective. The main aim of this thesis is increasing the accuracy of the measu...
A gis domain framework utilizing jar libraries as components
Ödoğru, Ebru; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2005)
A Component Oriented Software Engineering (COSE) modeling environment is enhanced with the capability to import executable components and deliver applications through their composition. For this purpose, an interface layer that utilizes JAR libraries as components has been developed. Also, Domain Engineering process has been applied to Geographical Information Systems (GIS) domain and utilized towards converting the environment to a development framework. The interface layer imports JAR libraries into the C...
A metrics-based approach to the testing process and testability of object-oriented software systems
Yurga, Tolga; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Information Systems (2009)
This dissertation investigates the factors that affect testability and testing cost of object- oriented software systems. Developing a software program which eases the testing process by increasing testability is crucial. Also, to assess whether or not the testing effort and cost consumed or planned is adequate or not is another critical matter this dissertation aims to answer by composing a new way to evaluate the links between software design parameters and testing effort via source-based metrics. An auto...
