A groundbreaking book in this field, Software Engineering Foundations: A Software Science Perspective integrates the latest research, methodologies, and their applications into a unified theoretical framework. Based on the author's 30 years of experience, it examines a wide range of underlying theories from philosophy, cognitive informatics, denotational mathematics, system science, organization laws, and engineering economics. The book contains in-depth information, annotated references, real-world problems, heuristics, and research opportunities.Highlighting the inherent limitations of the historical programming-language-centered approach, the author explores an interdisciplinary approach to software engineering. He identifies fundamental cognitive, organizational, and resource constraints and the need for multi-faceted and transdisciplinary theories and empirical knowledge. He then synergizes theories, principles, and best practices of software engineering into a unified framework and delineates overarching, durable, and transdisciplinary theories as well as alternative solutions and open issues for further research. The book develops dozens of Wang's laws for software engineering and outlooks the emergence of software science.The author's rigorous treatment of the theoretical framework and his comprehensive coverage of complicated problems in software engineering lay a solid foundation for software theories and technologies. Comprehensive and written for all levels, the book explains a core set of fundamental principles, laws, and a unified theoretical framework.
Architecture-driven Software Development
Software Engineering: Architecture-driven Software Development is the first comprehensive guide to the underlying skills embodied in the IEEE's Software Engineering Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK) standard. Standards expert Richard Schmidt explains the traditional software engineering practices recognized for developing projects for government or corporate systems. Software engineering education often lacks standardization, with many institutions focusing on implementation rather than design as it impacts product architecture. Many graduates join the workforce with incomplete skills, leading to software projects that either fail outright or run woefully over budget and behind schedule. Additionally, software engineers need to understand system engineeri...
Foundations of Program Design
This book takes an early object oriented approach to Java Embracing Java 5.0 topics, including the new standard Scanner class for simplified keyboard input and parsing, enumerated types, autoboxing, variable length parameter lists, the enhanced for loop, and generic types. This new edition has an earlier evolution of object concepts, developed in a way that capitalizes on the power of objects without overwhelming beginning programmers. It includes all new Java 5 topics, including Scanner class, enumerated types, autoboxing, variable length parameter lists, the enhanced for loop, and generic types. This is in depth coverage on GUI applications. This b...
A Study Guide for the Certified Tester Exam
Professional testing of software is an essential task that requires a profound knowledge of testing techniques. The International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB) has developed a universally accepted, international qualification scheme aimed at software and system testing professionals, and has created the Syllabi and Tests for the "Certified Tester." Today about 300,000 people have taken the ISTQB certification exams.The authors of Software Testing Foundations, 4th Edition, are among the creators of the Certified Tester Syllabus and are currently active in the ISTQB. This thoroughly revised and updated fourth edition covers the "Foundations Level" (entry level) and teaches the most important methods of software testi...
