Context Embedded systems have overwhelming penetration around the world. Innovations are increasingly triggered by software embedded in automotive, transportation, medical-equipment, communication, energy, and many other types of systems. To test embedded software in an effective and efficient manner, a large number of test techniques, approaches, tools and frameworks have been proposed by both practitioners and researchers in the last several decades.

Graphical user interface (GUI) testing: Systematic mapping and repository
Banerjee, Ishan; Nguyen, Bao; Garousi, Vahid; Memon, Atif (Elsevier BV, 2013-10-01)
Context: GUI testing is system testing of a software that has a graphical-user interface (GUI) front-end. Because system testing entails that the entire software system, including the user interface, be tested as a whole, during GUI testing, test cases-modeled as sequences of user input events-are developed and executed on the software by exercising the GUI's widgets (e.g., text boxes and clickable buttons). More than 230 articles have appeared in the area of GUI testing since 1991.
Software test maturity assessment and test process improvement: A multivocal literature review
Garousi, Vahid; Felderer, Michael; Hacaloglu, Tuna (Elsevier BV, 2017-05-01)
Context: Software testing practices and processes in many companies are far from being mature and are usually conducted in ad-hoc fashions. Such immature practices lead to various negative outcomes, e.g., ineffectiveness of testing practices in detecting all the defects, and cost and schedule overruns of testing activities. To conduct test maturity assessment (TMA) and test process improvement (TPI) in a systematic manner, various TMA/TPI models and approaches have been proposed.
METU Interoperable Database system

A multidatabase system based on OMG's distributed object management architecture and named Middle East Technical University (METU) INteroperable Database management system (MIND) is presented. MIND employs a dynamic query optimizer. After a query is decomposed, the global subsequeries are sent to the involved Local Database Agent (LDA) objects. The optimization process starts after the first partial result from a LDA object becomes available. For optimizing the intersite operations among these partial resul...
IFOOD: An intelligent fuzzy object-oriented database architecture
Koyuncu, M; Yazıcı, Adnan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2003-09-01)
Next generation information system applications require powerful and intelligent information management that necessitates an efficient interaction between database and knowledge base technologies. It is also important for these applications to incorporate uncertainty in data objects, in integrity constraints, and/or in application. In this study, we propose an intelligent object-oriented database architecture, IFOOD, which permits the flexible modeling and querying of complex data and knowledge including un...
Verification of Modular Diagnosability With Local Specifications for Discrete-Event Systems
Schmidt, Klaus Verner (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-09-01)
In this paper, we study the diagnosability verification for modular discrete-event systems (DESs), i.e., DESs that are composed of multiple components. We focus on a particular modular architecture, where each fault in the system must be uniquely identified by the modular component where it occurs and solely based on event observations of that component. Hence, all diagnostic computations for faults to be detected in this architecture can be performed locally on the respective modular component, and the obt...
