On the business value and technical challenges of adopting Web services

JOURNAL OF SOFTWARE MAINTENANCE AND EVOLUTION: RESEARCH AND PRACTICE, Issue 1-2 2004
S. Tilley
Abstract This paper provides a balanced perspective of the business value and technical challenges of adopting Web services. Technology adoption is a continual challenge for both tool developers and enterprise users. Web services are a prime example of an emerging technology that is fraught with adoption issues. Part of the problem is separating marketing hype from business reality. Web services are network-accessible interfaces to application functionality. They are built using Internet technologies such as XML and standard protocols such as SOAP. The adoption issues related to Web services are complex and multifaceted. For example, determining whether this technology is a fundamental advance, rather than something old under a new name, requires technical depth, business acumen, and considerable historical knowledge of past developments. A sample problem from the health care industry is used to illustrate some of the adoption issues. Copyright © 2004 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. [source]

Adaptation of reef and mangrove sponges to stress: evidence for ecological speciation exemplified by Chondrilla caribensis new species (Demospongiae, Chondrosida)

MARINE ECOLOGY, Issue 2007
Klaus Rützler
Abstract Sponges (Porifera) in mangroves have adapted to a wide range of environmental parameters except for extended periods of exposure to freshwater or air. Many marine mangrove islands are located in the shallow backwaters of coral reefs in Belize and elsewhere in the Caribbean and have a mean tidal range of only 15 cm. They are densely populated by sponges, mostly attached to subtidal red-mangrove stilt roots and peat banks lining tidal channels. Some species are endemic to mangroves, others are immigrants from nearby reefs. Mangrove endemics endure environmental hardships, such as occasional exposure to air during spring tides, temperature and salinity extremes, fine sediments, even burial in detritus. Reef immigrants into mangroves enjoy protection from spongivores that do not stray into the swamp but they eventually succumb to environmental stress. There is evidence exemplified by the common demosponge Chondrilla aff. nucula, that sponges flourishing in both mangrove and reef habitats may develop separate ecologically specialized and reproductively isolated populations. Such processes can lead to genetic modifications and thus serve as mechanisms for ecological speciation. Because Chondrilla nucula Schmidt was first described from the Mediterranean Sea, it was long suspected that the western Atlantic population may be a separate species. New morphological and molecular evidence prompt us to describe it under a new name, Chondrilla caribensis, with two ecological forms, forma caribensis from mangroves and lagoons, and forma hermatypica from open reefs.

Ultrastructural Description of Breviata anathema, N. Gen., N. Sp., the Organism Previously Studied as "Mastigamoeba invertens"

THE JOURNAL OF EUKARYOTIC MICROBIOLOGY, Issue 2 2006
GISELLE WALKER
ABSTRACT. An understanding of large-scale eukaryotic evolution is beginning to crystallise, as molecular and morphological data demonstrate that eukaryotes fall into six major groups. However, there are several taxa of which the affinities are yet to be resolved, and for which there are only either molecular or morphological data. One of these is the amoeboid flagellate Mastigamoeba invertens. This organism was originally misidentified and studied as a pelobiont using molecular data. We present its first light microscopical and ultrastructural characterisation. We demonstrate that it does not show affinities to the amoebozoan pelobionts, because unlike the pelobionts, it has a double basal body and two flagellar roots, a classical Golgi stack, and a large branching double membrane-bound organelle. Phylogenetic analyses of small subunit ribosomal RNA suggest an affinity with the apusomonads, when a covariotide correction for rate heterogeneity is used. We suggest that previous molecular results have been subject to artefacts from an insufficient correction for rate heterogeneity. We propose a new name for the taxon, Breviata anathema; and the unranked, apomorphy-based name "Breviates" for Breviata and its close relatives. [source]

The phylogenetic position of toadfishes (order Batrachoidiformes) in the higher ray-finned fish as inferred from partitioned Bayesian analysis of 102 whole mitochondrial genome sequences

BIOLOGICAL JOURNAL OF THE LINNEAN SOCIETY, Issue 3 2005
MASAKI MIYA
In a previous study based on 100 whole mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) sequences, we sought to provide a new perspective on the ordinal relationships of higher ray-finned fish (Actinopterygii). The study left unexplored the phylogenetic ,position, of, toadfishes, (order, Batrachoidiformes),, as, data, were, unavailable, owing, to, technical, difficulties. In the present study, we successfully determined mitogenomic sequences for two toadfish species (Batrachomoeus trispinosus and Porichthys myriaster) and found that the difficulties resulted from unusual gene arrangements and associated repetitive non-coding sequences. Unambiguously aligned, concatenated mitogenomic sequences (13 461 bp) from 102 higher actinopterygians (excluding the ND6 gene and control region) were divided into five partitions (1st, 2nd and 3rd codon positions of the protein-coding genes, tRNA genes and rRNA genes) and partitioned Bayesian analyses were conducted. The resultant phylogenies strongly suggest that the toadfishes are not members of relatively primitive higher actinopterygians (Paracanthopterygii), but belong to a crown group of actinopterygians (Percomorpha), as was demonstrated for ophidiiform eels (Ophidiiformes) and anglerfishes (Lophiiformes) in the previous study. We propose revised limits of major unranked categories for higher actinopterygians and a new name (Berycomorpha) for a clade comprising two reciprocally paraphyletic orders (Beryciformes and Stephanoberyciformes) based on the present mitogenomic phylogenies. © 2005 The Linnean Society of London, Biological Journal of the Linnean Society, 2005, 85, 289,306.

The Rubiaceae of Cabinda (Angola)

BOTANICAL JOURNAL OF THE LINNEAN SOCIETY, Issue 4 2007
ESTRELA FIGUEIREDO fls
A treatment of the Rubiaceae of Cabinda (Angola) is presented based on various herbarium collections. There are 67 genera and 169 species of Rubiaceae represented in the flora of Cabinda. Eight entities are unnamed and could represent new taxa. Identification keys are provided for species and infraspecific taxa. A new combination is made in Rothmannia and two are made in Psychotria. A new name is provided in Psychotria. Eighteen taxa are endemic to Cabinda, two of which are also endemic to Angola. The conservation status of the endemic taxa is unknown due to the lack of collections over the last 40 years. © 2007 The Linnean Society of London, Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society, 2007, 154, 455,495.

The basidiomycete genus Polyporus , an emendation based on phylogeny and putative secondary structure of ribosomal RNA molecules

FEDDES REPERTORIUM, Issue 7-8 2004
D. Krüger
The fungal genus Polyporus is an assemblage of white-rotting lignicolous basidiomycetes. It has undergone considerable expansion and contraction over a period of two and three quarter centuries. Current generic circumscription of Polyporus has kept the genus non-monophyletic. Species of Polyporus infrageneric group Polyporellus are closely related to some species of Lentinus. We introduce data for ITS2 spacer rRNA secondary structure evolution by quasi-independent comparison with large subunit rRNA phylogeny, and suggest a fraction of primary nuclear rDNA ITS sequence data as novel taxonomic character. A major taxonomic shift is suggested, supported by molecular and morphological characters, and allowing inclusion of species with gilled hymenophores in Polyporus. Two new names are proposed: Polyporus phyllostipes D.Krüger, nom. nov. and Polyporus gerdai D.Krüger, nom. nov. (© 2004 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim) Die Gattung Polyporus (Basidiomycetes) , eine Emendation auf der Basis von Phylogenie und mutmaßlicher sekundärer Struktur der ribosomalen RNA-Moleküle Die Pilzgattung Polyporus, eine Gruppe Weißfäule erregender holzbewohnender Basidiomyceten, wurde über nahezu drei Jahrhunderte vielfach expandiert und verkleinert. Bei der derzeitigen Gattungsumschreibung von Polyporus gilt die Gattung als nicht-monophyletisch. Arten der Polyporus -Gruppe Polyporellus sind eng verwandt zu einigen Lentinus- Arten. Anhand quasi-unabhängigem Vergleich mit der Phylogenie der rRNA der großen Untereinheit (LSU) stellen wir Daten zur Evolution der ITS2 Spacer rRNA vor, und schlagen ein ITS Kern-rDNA-Fragment als taxonomisches Merkmal vor. Unterstützt mit molekularen und morphologischen Daten wird eine grundlegende taxonomische Verschiebung vorgeschlagen, welche Arten mit Lamellen-Hymenophoren in Polyporus erlaubt. Zwei neue Namen werden vorgeschlagen: Polyporus phyllostipes D.Krüger, nom. nov. und Polyporus gerdai D.Krüger, nom. nov. [source]


Privatize your name: Symbolic work in a post-Soviet linguistic market

JOURNAL OF SOCIOLINGUISTICS, Issue 3 2000
Alexei Yurchak
This paper analyzes the new names given to Russian private businesses that have appeared after the collapse of the Soviet State in 1991. By naming new private ventures their owners members of the new business class attempt to privatize public space not only legally but also symbolically and linguistically. They strive to construct their particular new version of social reality, to represent it as positive and meaningful, and to impose themselves publicly as legitimate authors, owners, and masters of this new reality. This paper proceeds on several distinct levels of analysis. First, it analyzes a number of discourses, representing various subcultures and periods of Soviet and Russian history, from which new business names draw their complex meanings. Second, it considers concrete linguistic and semiotic techniques that are employed by the new names in this process. Third, it examines the cultural and social implications of this process of nomination for post-Soviet developments in the Russian society. [source]


Test processes in software product evolution,a qualitative survey on the state of practice

JOURNAL OF SOFTWARE MAINTENANCE AND EVOLUTION: RESEARCH AND PRACTICE, Issue 1 2003
Per Runeson
Abstract In order to understand the state of test process practices in the software industry, we have conducted a qualitative survey, covering software development departments at 11 companies in Sweden of different sizes and application domains. The companies develop products in an evolutionary manner, which means either new versions are released regularly, or new product variants under new names are released. The survey was conducted through workshop and interview sessions, loosely guided by a questionnaire scheme. The main conclusions of the survey are that the documented development process is emphasized by larger organizations as a key asset, while smaller organizations tend to lean more on experienced people. Further, product volution is performed primarily as new product variants for embedded systems, and as new versions for packaged software. The development is structured using incremental development or a daily build approach; increments are used among more process-focused organizations, and daily build is more frequently utilized in less process-focused organizations. Test automation is performed using scripts for products with focus on functionality, and recorded data for products with focus on non-functional properties. Test automation is an issue which most organizations want to improve; handling the legacy parts of the product and related documentation presents a common problem in improvement efforts for product evolution.

A phylogenetic classification of the land plants to accompany APG III

BOTANICAL JOURNAL OF THE LINNEAN SOCIETY, Issue 2 2009
MARK W. CHASE
A formal classification of the land plants that is compatible with the APG III classification is proposed. Previous classifications inflated taxonomic ranks, particularly of the angiosperms. If the major clades of green algae are recognized as classes, then all land plants, the embryophytes, should be included in a single class, here recognized as Equisitopsida. Accordingly, the 16 major clades of land plants, including the angiosperms, should all be recognized as subclasses, the angiosperms as Magnoliidae. Major clades within the angiosperms are then recognized as superorders. This classification still uses a few informal categories (e.g. eudicots, lamiids, etc.) within the angiosperms because this is convenient. Two new names are established: Amborellanae and Austrobaileyanae. © 2009 The Linnean Society of London, Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society, 2009, 161, 122,127. [source]


IC3D classification of corneal dystrophies

ACTA OPHTHALMOLOGICA, Issue 2009
HU MØLLER
The IC3D group, an international group of corneal specialists and ophthalmic pathologists, formed a few years ago to review known corneal dystrophies. Based on personal experience and literature studies the new IC3D classification of corneal dystrophies was published in December 2008 as a freely available supplement to the journal Cornea. The classification suggests new names for some dystrophies, suggests definitions when an entity could be called a dystrophy, and gives examples of typical slit lamp images. It is built in a way to accommodate new and variant dystrophies found in the future. The purpose of this symposium is to draw attention to this new classification with special emphasis on recent variant dystrophies associated with the TBFBI gene. The IC3D group urges authors and reviewers alike to require stringent criteria to be met before publication of a dystrophy as a new entity. [source]
