Composing Software Components: A Software-testing Perspective

Buy

Software components and component-based software development (CBSD) are acknowledged as the best approach for constructing quality software at reasonable cost. Composing Software Components: A Software-testing Perspective describes a 10-year investigation into the underlying principles of CBSD. By restricting attention to the simplest cases, startling results are obtained:

• Components are tested using only executable code. Their behavior is recorded and presented graphically.

• Functional and non-functional behavior of systems synthesized from components are calculated from component tests alone. No access to components themselves is required.

• Fast, accurate tools support every aspect of CBSD from design through debugging.

Case studies of CBSD also illuminate software testing in general, particularly an expanded role for unit testing and the treatment of non-functional software properties.

This unique book:

• Contains more than a dozen case studies of fully worked-out component synthesis, with revealing insights into fundamental testing issues.

• Presents an original, fundamental theory of component composition that includes persistent state and concurrency, based on functional software testing rather than proof-of-programs.

• Comes with free supporting software with tutorial examples and data for replication of examples. The Perl software has been tested on Linux, Macintosh, and Windows platforms. Full documentation is provided.

• Includes anecdotes and insights from the author’s 50-year career in computing as systems programmer, manager, researcher, and teacher.

Composing Software Components: A Software-testing Perspective will help software researchers and practitioners to understand the underlying principles of component testing. Advanced students in computer science, engineering, and mathematics can also benefit from the book as a supplemental text and reference.

Solid-State Spectroscopy: An Introduction
Solid-State Spectroscopy: An Introduction

Spectroscopic methods have opened up a new horizon in our knowledge of solid-state materials. Numerous techniques using electromagnetic radiation or charged and neutral particles have been invented and worked out to a high level in order to provide more detailed information on the solids. The text presented here is an updated description of such...

Ethics, Design and Planning of the Built Environment (Urban and Landscape Perspectives)
Ethics, Design and Planning of the Built Environment (Urban and Landscape Perspectives)

The book proposes a set of original contributions in research areas shared by planning theory, architectural research, design and ethical inquiry. The contributors gathered in 2010 at the Ethics of the Built Environment seminar organized by the editors at Delft University of Technology. Both prominent and emerging scholars presented their...

Object Oriented Reengineering Patterns (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Software Engineering and Programming)
Object Oriented Reengineering Patterns (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Software Engineering and Programming)
"This book speaks with experience. It gives you the building blocks for a plan to tackle a difficult code base and the context for techniques like refactoring. It is a sad fact that there are too few of these kinds of books out there, when reengineering is such a common event. But I'm at least glad to see that while there aren't many books in...

Renewable Energy (Energy Science and Engineering)
Renewable Energy (Energy Science and Engineering)
The present edition has been updated in a number of renewable energy technology areas (Chapter 4 and 5), where progress have been made over the recent years. New solar simulation studies have been added to Chapter 6, and market considerations have been included in the overview in Chapter 1, and in discussing industry liberalisation in Chapter 7....
Practical Ruby Projects: Ideas for the Eclectic Programmer
Practical Ruby Projects: Ideas for the Eclectic Programmer
This book is titled Practical Ruby Projects. And let me start by saying that the projects are practical. But they might not be quite what you’re used to. Flip through the book. You won’t find any references to enterprise deployment. Not a word about business logic. In fact, hard as it is to believe, there’s no web programming! But...
Particles in the Early Universe: High-Energy Limit of the Standard Model from the Contraction of Its Gauge Group
Particles in the Early Universe: High-Energy Limit of the Standard Model from the Contraction of Its Gauge Group
The aim of this book is to develop a contraction method for classical orthogonal and unitary groups (algebras), and apply it to the investigation of physical structures, offering a new and unique interpretation to the high-energy limit of the Standard Model. Readers will find a comprehensive and rigorous study, summarized as follows: The...
