  • Using Models in Developing Software for Self-Driving Cars

    Models play an important role in developing software for autonomous systems like self-driving cars; they are used to simulate and verify behavior, document the system, and generate code. Jonathan Sprinkle explains how to model software used in autonomous systems, the benefits of modeling, using test data to validate the software that drives a car and techniques for writing reliable code.

  • Agile is Giving Testers More Influence

    There is an evolution going on in testing. It used to be that testing was about confirming to the specification. Testers were often brought in too late and had too little influence, but that is changing now as Cirilio Wortel explained in his talk on the evolution of software testing.

  • Testing Impact of Model Driven Development

    By using Model Driven Development component tests could be skipped and integration and system testing went a lot smoother, said Bryan Bakker in the presentation Model Driven Development (MDD) and its impact on testing. Main results from the MDD approach are a reduction of the amount of testing and increased reliability of the code that was generated from a mathematical model.

  • JSR 303: Time to Standardize Validation

    Jason Carreira has submitted JSR 303 to standardize a meta-model and and API for JavaBean validation. The JSR has just been submitted and has not yet been approved by the JCP EC, but if approved the API could provide a consistent validation approach across tiers and within other standards and frameworks. InfoQ spok to Jason to find out more about the potential of JSR 303.
