The theme aBuild and Conquera chosen for this yearas conference fully represents what we (the organizers) want to put across to the software community: software development is an engineering discipline, and not an artistic expression. Once we are ready to abuilda our software systems using pieces previously builtin (similar to any other technology manufacturer), we will be able to aconquera the software engineering process. If we take a look at other engineering disciplines such as car manufacturing, house appliances or aeronautics, we see that the final products are built through the integration of multiprovider commercial components. These components are successfully integrated and constitute an important part of the final product. Most software-related organizations still build software from scratch, omitting thousands of ready-built commercially available software components that could be used very effectively during the development phase. This year ICCBSS moves to Europe for the first time since the first conference took place in Orlando, FL, USA in 2002. The conference scope has enlarged over the years to include the Open Source community and Web Services technologies. The reason for this is that I believe both are considered components-off-the-shelf, so many of the characteristics of COTS are also applied to Open Source and Web Services. Due to this, we will enjoy the presence of keynote speakers and researchers presenting on these two topics for the first time.3.3 R3: Repair Analysis There can be many potential repairs for a model problem : negotiate with the vendor, modify other system components, add ... Note JMeter is an open source tool that is able to simulate HTTP requests for load testing and record performance data. ... Next, the project manager determines what portion of the development budget can be used to reduce the risk to an acceptable level.
