Top Stories by Wayne Ariola

Parasoft, a leading provider of Automated Error Prevention (AEP) software solutions, recently had the opportunity to work closely with leading game development organizations. Since game development differs from "standard" development, we worked with game development organizations to develop technical and process improvement strategies to suit the industry's unique development needs. This article explores the challenges of developing software for the game development industry, and describes the strategies used to overcome them. The challenges and strategies discussed apply not only to game development, but also to most high-resolution graphic development, which is increasingly being performed on Linux. Challenges of Game Development Although game development seems like a dream job to many developers, developing solid games is far from child's play. Like other C/C++ de... (more)

Trusting Reusable Business Components in SOA and Web Services

One of the business benefits organizations strive to achieve by implementing a service-oriented architecture (SOA) or in utilizing Web services is the opportunity to reuse business components. Asset reuse is one of the core drivers of the SOA or Web service ROI calculation. Although leveraging the service concept provides an avenue for application consolidation and reuse, these same efficiencies also introduce a distinct level of business risk. For example, in an architecture where multiple distributed applications provide a business with a specific operation, should a single appl... (more)

Who's Responsible for SOA Quality in a Service-Oriented Architecture?

Service-oriented architectures are much different than our traditional siloed applications. SOAs span multiple tiers and multiple applications, their development lifecycles are multi-staged and highly iterative, and there are multiple parties impacted by both internal and perhaps external changes to the organization. Delivering a secure, reliable, compliant SOA, given these complexities, requires a different approach to quality. In a complex system, quality measures must permeate every aspect to translate into a quality deliverable. Architecture & Interface Consistency For exampl... (more)
