Recovering traceability links in software artifact management systems using information retrieval methods
Andrea De Lucia, Fausto Fasano, Rocco Oliveto, Genoveffa Tortora
Article No.: 13
DOI: 10.1145/1276933.1276934

The main drawback of existing software artifact management systems is the lack of automatic or semi-automatic traceability link generation and maintenance. We have improved an artifact management system with a traceability recovery tool based on...

Static checking of dynamically generated queries in database applications
Gary Wassermann, Zhendong Su, Carl Gould, Premkumar Devanbu
Article No.: 14
DOI: 10.1145/1276933.1276935

Many data-intensive applications dynamically construct queries in response to client requests and execute them. Java servlets, for example, can create strings that represent SQL queries and then send the queries, using JDBC, to a database server...

Three empirical studies on estimating the design effort of Web applications
Sandro Morasca, Luciano Baresi
Article No.: 15
DOI: 10.1145/1276933.1276936

Our research focuses on the effort needed for designing modern Web applications. The design effort is an important part of the total development effort, since the implementation can be partially automated by tools.

We carried out three...
