Special issue on: "Software Architecture, Evaluation and Testing for Emerging Paradigms"

Guest Editor:
Dr. G. Zayaraz, Pondicherry Engineering College, India

This special issue aims at presenting the current trends in software engineering, ranging from software architecture evolution to testing methodologies for emerging paradigms.

Furthermore, the issue will also highlight the relevance of techniques such rapid prototyping, domain-specific modelling, behaviour and test modelling languages, design patterns, aspect-oriented programming, extreme programming, etc. to software engineering development processes.

The issue will provide an opportunity for academic and industry professionals to discuss recent progress in software engineering processes, techniques, methodologies employed, tools developed, overall assessment of benefits, risks and mitigation and testing processes.
