Analysis patterns seem to be a promising approach supporting software analysis. However, the usefulness of this approach has not been proved. This paper presents a ‘big picture’ of issues related to application of analysis patterns in software development process from practitioner’s perspective. It examines several aspects of analysis patterns and their application in software development. Then, it provides a method of system analysis with analysis patterns. And finally, it presents a case study of analysis with analysis patterns for a system supporting a small real medical centre.
The Workshop on Automatic Performance Analysis (WAPA 2005, Dagstuhl Seminar 05501), held December 13-16, 2005, brought together performance researchers, developers, and practitioners with the goal of better understanding the methods, techniques, and tools that are needed for the automation of performance analysis for high performance computing.
The average case of some elimination-based data-ﬂow analysis algorithms is analyzed in a mathematical way. Besides this allows for comparing the timing behavior of the algorithms, it also provides insights into how relevant the underlying statistics are when compared to practical settings.
