      Carvallo Vega, Juan Pablo; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier (Springer Verlag, 2009)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      The architectural definition of hybrid software systems is a challenging problem that demands to reconcile stakeholders’ strategic needs and components marketplace, whilst defining an appropriate set of services. We have ...
    • On the use of requirements for driving call-for-tender processes for procuring coarse-grained OTS components 

      Carvallo Vega, Juan Pablo; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier (IEEE Computer Society Publications, 2009)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Because of their complexity, software systems are currently built by integrating components of different nature into hybrid architectures, usually including some third party Off-The-Shelf (OTS) components. Several methods ...
    • QM: a tool for building software quality models 

      Carvallo Vega, Juan Pablo; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier; Grau Colom, Gemma; Quer, Carme (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2004)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      We present the QM tool used to support our IQMC method for the construction of quality models for COTS domains. This tool also supports the organization of quality models in a taxonomy of COTS domains for supporting the ...
