  • Context-Awareness onSoftware Artifacts inDistributed SoftwareDevelopment: A SystematicReviewRafael Leonardo VivianElisa Hatsue Moriya HuzitaGislaine Camila Lapasini LealAna Paula Chaves SteinmacherCRIWG 2011 - 17th CRIWG Conference onCollaboration and Technology
  • Agenda ● Introduction ● Method ● Results ● Discussion ● ConclusionContext-Awareness on Software Artifacts in Distributed Software Development: A Systematic Review 02
  • Introduction ● Distributed Software Development (DSD) has brought new challenges to software projects caused by physical dispersion and temporal distance ● Awareness techniques combined with contextual information of the environment improve communication among individuals involved in collaborative workContext-Awareness on Software Artifacts in Distributed Software Development: A Systematic Review 03
  • Introduction ● Awareness mechanisms are essential to offer individuals contextual information about the actions that occur on the entities such as software artifacts ● Physical dispersion and temporal distance among collaborative teams hinder awareness of contextual information about the creation and maintenance of software artifactsContext-Awareness on Software Artifacts in Distributed Software Development: A Systematic Review 04
  • Introduction ● The objective of the research was to identify awareness studies featuring techniques of acquire and present contextual information on software artifacts generated in Distributed Software DevelopmentContext-Awareness on Software Artifacts in Distributed Software Development: A Systematic Review 05
  • Method ● We made a systematic review to identify aspects upon which researchers have focused about sources of information and visual resources on the development of software artifacts in DSD ● Also, the systematic review allowed us to analyze and identify current challenges and opportunities for future worksContext-Awareness on Software Artifacts in Distributed Software Development: A Systematic Review 06
  • Method ● A systematic review aims to evaluate and interpret all available research related to a research question or topic of interest through a rigorous and reliable methodology [Kitchenham, 2007] ● The systematic review consists of three stages: – Review Planning – Review Conduction – Review Analysis Kitchenham, B.A.: Guidelines for performing systematic literature reviews in software engineering. Technical report, EBSE-2007-001, UK (2007)Context-Awareness on Software Artifacts in Distributed Software Development: A Systematic Review 07
  • Method ● Research Questions: – RQ1: What sources of information and visual resources have been used to implement, respectively, the acquisition and presentation of contextual information on the development of software artifacts in DSD? – RQ2: What types of software artifacts are addressed by research concerning context-awareness? – RQ3: What contextual information and properties are important for context-awareness on software artifacts in DSD?Context-Awareness on Software Artifacts in Distributed Software Development: A Systematic Review 08
  • Method ● Search Strategy: – Stage 1: manual search in conferences, workshops and journals – Stage 2: electronic databases were searched using the keywords “distributed software development” and “context-awareness” – Papers written in English and Portuguese, published between 2000 and 2010Context-Awareness on Software Artifacts in Distributed Software Development: A Systematic Review 09
  • Method ● Search Strategy: – The databases searched were: - IEEE Xplore - ACM Digital Library - EI Compendex - ScienceDirect - ScirusContext-Awareness on Software Artifacts in Distributed Software Development: A Systematic Review 10
  • Method ● Search Strategy: Reference Category Keywords C1 Distributed Software Global software development Development Geographically distributed development Collaborative development Distributed development Distributed software project Global software engineering Globally distributed work Distributed teams Global software teams Collaborative work Virtual teams C2 Context-Awareness Context-aware Awareness Context-sensitiveContext-Awareness on Software Artifacts in Distributed Software Development: A Systematic Review 11
  • Method ● Search Strategy: (“distributed software development” OR “global software development” OR “geographically distributed development” OR “collaborative development” OR “distributed development” OR “distributed software project” OR “global software engineering” OR “globally distributed work” OR “distributed teams” OR “global software teams” OR “collaborative work” OR “virtual teams”) AND (“context-awareness” OR “context-aware” OR “awareness” OR “context-sensitive”)Context-Awareness on Software Artifacts in Distributed Software Development: A Systematic Review 12
  • Method ● Criteria and Selection Procedures - INCLUSION: – I1. Sources of information and visual resources used to implement, respectively, the acquisition and presentation of contextual information on the development of software artifacts in DSD – I2. Types of software artifacts addressed by research on context-awareness – I3. Contextual information and important properties for context-awareness on DSD software artifactsContext-Awareness on Software Artifacts in Distributed Software Development: A Systematic Review 13
  • Method ● Criteria and Selection Procedures - EXCLUSION: – E1. Sources of information and visual resources that are not used to implement, respectively, the acquisition and presentation of contextual information on software artifacts development in DSD – E2.Types of software artifacts addressed by studies that are not related to context-awareness – E3. Contextual information and properties that are not important for understanding context-awareness on software artifacts in DSDContext-Awareness on Software Artifacts in Distributed Software Development: A Systematic Review 14
  • Method ● Criteria and Selection Procedures: (i) read the articles titles and abstracts, and then exclude those deemed irrelevant to the research questions (ii) the papers selected in the previous step were read in full (iii) after reading, the selected papers were documented on a formContext-Awareness on Software Artifacts in Distributed Software Development: A Systematic Review 15

  • Discussion ● Other research topics that can be explored: – Awareness to overcome issues related to indication of which artifacts have consumed most effort among development teams – Context-awareness on the software artifacts of project to the automatic generation of new artifacts – Obtain contextual information from sources as tools for Software Configuration ManagementContext-Awareness on Software Artifacts in Distributed Software Development: A Systematic Review 25
  • Discussion ● The merge of previously discussed features could be an interesting research topic, once the acquisition of contextual information from tools such as Software Configuration Management and their presentation to development teams members would increase their awareness about the project ● Keeping a change history and the relationship among software artifacts could increase the chances of traceability and, thus, propagate the communication in distributed teams through the context-awareness on software artifactsContext-Awareness on Software Artifacts in Distributed Software Development: A Systematic Review 26
  • Conclusion ● Systematic review of techniques for acquisition and presentation of contextual information on generating software artifacts in DSD ● The proposals found (57.6%) concerned with the exploration of contextual information on software artifacts from central repository and the own local workspace of developer ● Version control systems, bug tracking and continuous integration also store contextual information on the creation and maintenance of software artifactsContext-Awareness on Software Artifacts in Distributed Software Development: A Systematic Review 27
  • Conclusion ● Timeline and visual resources as graphs and colors are interesting alternative to visualize the evolution of artifact during the software development cycle ● Change history with information of relationship among artifacts become an important factor increasing productivity and understanding among the team members in collaborative workContext-Awareness on Software Artifacts in Distributed Software Development: A Systematic Review 28
  • Conclusion ● Limitations: – The search was reduced to a limited number of search engines – The studies on the subject of DSD and context- awareness but not contributed with any significant method or technique in the research context were excluded – Some studies, mainly related to tools which are not included in the context of DSD, but are useful in areas related to communication and collaboration, were included as wellContext-Awareness on Software Artifacts in Distributed Software Development: A Systematic Review 29
