Automated software refactoring is one of the hard combinatorial optimization problems of search-based software engineering domain. The idea is to enhance the quality of the existing software under the guidance of software quality metrics through applicable refactoring actions. In this study, we designed and implemented a web-service that uses discrete version of Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) optimization approach in order to enhance bytecode compiled Java programming language codes, automatically. The introduced service supports 20 different refactoring actions that realize intelligent ABC searches on design landscape defined by an adhoc quality model being an aggregation of 24 object-oriented software metrics.

An Agile business process software development methodology
Çulha, Davut; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2014)
An agile business process software development methodology is proposed, developed and tested in this research. To speed up the business process software development practices in the organization and to address the requirements more efficiently, an agile approach was adapted. Two new processes were developed using the new methodology. The improvement was assessed by utilizing nine older developments: A formula was developed in this research that estimates the development efforts for old business process soft...
A Software benchmarking methodology for effort estimation
Nabi, Mina; Demirörs, Onur; Department of Information Systems (2012)
Software project managers usually use benchmarking repositories to estimate effort, cost, and duration of the software development which will be used to appropriately plan, monitor and control the project activities. In addition, precision of benchmarking repositories is a critical factor in software effort estimation process which plays subsequently a critical role in the success of the software development project. In order to construct such a precise benchmarking data repository, it is important to have ...
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 Ontology based approach to requirements reuse problem in software product lines
Karataş, Elif Kamer; Birtürk, Ayşenur; Department of Computer Engineering (2012)
With new paradigms in software engineering such as Software Product Lines, scope of reuse is enlarged from implementation upto design, requirements, test-cases, etc. In this thesis an ontology-based approach is proposed as a solution to systematic requirement reuse problem in software product lines, and the approach is supported with a reuse automation tool. A case study is performed on the projects of an industrial software product line using hereby proposed solution and then based on the evaluated metrics...
Using collaboration diagrams in component oriented modelin
Tuncel, Mehmet Burhan; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2006)
Component Oriented Software Engineering (COSE) seems to be the future of software engineering. Currently, COSEML is the only modeling language that completely supports the COSE approach. Abstract decomposition of the system and their representing components are shown in a hierarchy diagram to support the COSE process model. In COSEML, only static modeling is supported through this single diagram. However, software is about behavior and static modeling is not sufficient to describe the system. The aim of thi...
