ABSTRACT In current era, the software engineering community is moving towards the design and development of component-based software, to achieve less complex software and to improve the reusability of code. Complexity of a system plays major role in estimating the efforts to test the software. This paper presents a methodology to obtain the complexity of the component-based software, through the effective path coverage criteria. The complexity of software is a function of complexity of the components integrated for that software. A case study is also presented, in which we have applied the proposed methodology to a software system.

ABSTRACT Analyzing the increasing and decreasing bug patterns in Open Source software is a challenging task. It is tough to predict the bug patterns as they often show erratic behavior. In this paper we have used Hidden Markov Models to analyze the temporal bug patterns of two open source software applications: these are Mozilla Firefox Browser and Debian Operating System. Here we have considered the increases and decreases in bug numbers with time as observation sequences and define them as temporal bug patterns. We have used the number of contributors and the number of commits as the hidden states affecting the observed temporal bug patterns. The main objective of the paper is modelling of the temporal bug patterns for the open source software applications. Three types of Hidden Markov Models are built using the number of contributors, the number of commits and the simultaneous effect of both on the temporal bug patterns. We have also shown the effectiveness of these models in predicting short and long temporal bug patterns. The developers can take effective steps to reduce the number of bugs if they know the bug patterns in advance.

ABSTRACT The objective of this study is to analyze the fulfillment of the essence of good governance practice in the policy implementation of the Village Community Empowerment Program (PPMK) and National Self-reliant Community Empowerment Program (PNPM Mandiri), in Jakarta in 2007-2008. The study uses policy content methodology. The secondary data is collected from the policy content of Jakarta Community Empowerment Agency. The study reveals that both policies of the local and national community empowerment program in Jakarta in 2007-2008 still have weakness in terms of good governance practice. Many points are still unclear, and provide a chance of corruption, nepotism and collusion. The transparency, accountability, participation, and law enforcement are not potent. The study concludes that for the fulfillment of the good governance principles in the future, it is suggested to review the policy, and prepare a system, mechanism, and procedure that provide a quality assurance of the planning, preparation, and implementation of the PPMK and PNPM Mandiri program.

ABSTRACT This paper provides an overview of the selection of problem-solving mode of transport that can contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions using the two perspectives, namely the government and user standpoint. The method used is the system dynamics, which is concerned with the goal of increasing the understanding of the behavior of a given policy structure. The advantages of the model created with this approach is that the system is actually fairly represents, that led to the analogy of the systems approach is not necessarily consistent data and models can not be implemented in accordance with the specifications. Therefore, if the model compared with the model already established can not be comparated. Expected to provide an understanding of the behavior of the structure of a given policy can help the decision-making process regarding the dynamic phenomena.

ABSTRACT Creating a good writing is not an easy task for students. Writing requires students to think, argue, organize, and process ideas before it turns into a complete discourse. Students also need to master the structure of an essay; for example, drafting the outlines, paragraphs, and conclusion. Teaching in a writing class is also not an easy task for teachers. Teachers must be able to creatively bring the motivation for the students to learn. Integrating technology, pedagogy and human resources in English teaching and learning activity will facilitate the needs and interest of students in a better way to learn language. Therefore, this paper attempts to provide an innovation by using web-based learning technology, called WebQuest in a writing class.

ABSTRACT Selection program of the best elementary school in Indonesia aims to spur the development of the growth and improve the quality of the primary school. In this paper, the selection of the best elementary school is implemented based on predefined criteria. To help the selection process, a decision support system is needed. This paper employs Weighted Sum Model (WSM) and Multi Atribute Decesion Making Weighted Product (MADMWP) methods. The results of both methods were tested three times with three periods from the ranked data of schools obtained from Department of Education in Simalungun, North Sumatera, Indonesia. This system can be used to help in solving problems of the best elementary school selection.
