  • Managing non-technical requirements in COTS components selection 

    Carvallo Vega, Juan Pablo; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier; Quer, Carme (2006-03)
    External research report
    Open Access
    The selection of COTS components is made not only by an analysis of their technical quality but also (and sometimes mostly) by considering how they fulfill the nontechnical requirements considered relevant, which refer to ...
  • On the use of i* for architecting hybrid systems: a method and an evaluation report 

    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 (2004-02)
    External research report
    Open Access
    This paper presents QM, a tool for supporting the construction of quality models for software systems. The quality framework assumed for QM is defined by means of a conceptual model. The goals of QM are enumerated and ...
  • 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 ...
  • Selección de componentes Off-The-Shelf 

    Carvallo Vega, Juan Pablo; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier (Ra-Ma, 2010-02-11)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    La mayoría de sistemas de software actuales se construyen integrando componentes de software de diferente naturaleza y orígenes. La existencia de un enorme y creciente mercado de componentes desarrollados por terceros ha ...
  • Supporting i*-based context models construction through the DHARMA ontology 

    Pérez, Wilson; Abad, Karina; Carvallo Vega, Juan Pablo; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier (CEUR-WS.org, 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The construction of enterprise context models, fundamental tool to design of modern information systems, is usually a cumbersome task to lead, largely due to the gap of communication between the administrative staff and ...
  • Towards a unified catalogue of non-technical quality attributes to support COTS-based systems lifecycle activities 

    Carvallo Vega, Juan Pablo; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier; Quer, Carme (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2007)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Several activities of the COTS-based systems lifecycle are supported not only by the analysis of their technical quality but also (and sometimes mostly) by considering how they fulfill some non-technical quality features ...
  • Towards the definition of a quality model for mail servers 

    Carvallo Vega, Juan Pablo; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier (2002-05)
    External research report
    Open Access
    The paper presents an approach for building a Mail Server Quality Model, based on the ISO/IEC software quality standard. We start by defining the mail system domain to be used as general framework and the relevant technologies ...
  • Un catálogo de factores de calidad para la definición de requisitos no técnicos en la selección de componentes COTS 

    Carvallo Vega, Juan Pablo; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier; Quer, Carme (2006)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    La selección de componentes COTS (Commercial Off-The-Shelf) se realiza no sólo mediante el análisis de su calidad técnica sino también (y algunas veces principalmente) connsiderando cómo dichos componentes cumplen ...
  • Using quality models for assessing COTS selection 

    Botella López, Pere; Burgués Illa, Xavier; Carvallo Vega, Juan Pablo; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier; Quer, Carme (2002)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We present in this paper a framework embracing different aspects involved in COTS component selection that influence the success of this activity. Playing a crucial role in this framework appears the concept of quality ...
  • Using quality models in software package selection 

    Franch Gutiérrez, Javier; Carvallo Vega, Juan Pablo (2003-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The growing importance of commercial off-the-shelf software packages requires adapting some software engineering practices, such as requirements elicitation and testing, to this emergent framework. Also, some specific new ...
