1. “Hardware and Software, Verification and Testing” by Shmuel Ur and Eyal Bin

“Hardware and Software, Verification and Testing” Book Review: This book contains the review document of the First International Conference. The conference was held in November 2005 on Hardware Verification, Software Testing, and PADTAD. The conference merges the sixth IBM Verification Workshop along with the fourth IBM Software Testing Workshop, and the third PADTAD (Parallel and Distributed Systems: Testing and Debugging) Workshop. From 31 submissions, 14 rescript full papers which were presented together with three invited contributions were carefully reviewed and selected. The papers tell about all present issues in hardware/software verification. It also points out the problem in software testing and testing of parallel and concurrent applications.

2. “Architecting Dependable Systems VI (Lecture Notes in Computer Science)” by Rogério de Lemos and Jean-Charles Fabre

“Architecting Dependable Systems VI (Lecture Notes in Computer Science)” Book Review: This book has begun with an aim to bring all the research groups of software architectures, dependability and security together. The book contains the extended and review papers that are based on the contributions of two workshops. The first workshop was held in Alaska, USA, in June 2008 on Architecting Dependable Systems (WADS 2008). It was organized at the 2008 International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks (DSN 2008). The second one was the Third International Workshop on Views on Designing Complex Architectures (VODCA 2008) held in Berliner, Italy, in August 2008. The book also includes the papers written by the invited acknowledged experts in the field. The 13 peer-reviewed papers are arranged in topical sections on architectures for dependability and fault tolerance in software architectures. It also talks about dependability analysis in software architectures and industrial experience.

3. “Software Engineering for Large Software Systems” by B A Kitchenham

“Software Engineering for Large Software Systems” Book Review: The book offers a tutorial and papers shown at the Sixth CSR Confer­ence on the topic Large Software Systems. The book can be helpful in the software industry. The papers from the book explain the topic such as important working systems, highlighting their problems and successes. The author also talks about the techniques for large system development and maintenance, including project management and quality management. It also covers incremental delivery, in­ dependent V & V, and reverse engineering. The book begins with the information of the two sessions of the conference. The first one by Professor Keith Bennett of the Centre for Software Maintenance at Durham University on Software Maintenance. Second with Professor John McDermid of the University of York on Systems Engineering Environments for High Integrity Systems. The rest of the paper focuses on existing systems that start with Professor War boys’ keynote paper. At last, it covers the topic approaches to large systems development and methods for large systems maintenance and the expected impact of current research.

4. “Embedded Systems and Software Validation (Morgan Kaufmann Series in Systems on Silicon)” by Abhik Roychoudhury M S

“Embedded Systems and Software Validation (Morgan Kaufmann Series in Systems on Silicon)” Book Review: This book gives a clear understanding about a host of debugging and verification methods. The book includes important topics such as embedded systems design. Further it explains about software analysis and micro-architectural modelling. The topic modelling of resource sharing and communication at the system level is also explained. It also talks about combining techniques of validation for hardware/software with debugging and validation of embedded system design flows. several questions are explained in terms of practical case studies.Those questions are does a design meet its requirements?. If it does not, then which parts of the system are responsible for the violation, and once they are identified, then how should the design be suitably modified?

5. “Certifications of Critical Systems: The CECRIS Experience (River Publishers Series in Information Science and Technology)” by Andrea Bondavalli and Francesco Brancati

“Certifications of Critical Systems: The CECRIS Experience (River Publishers Series in Information Science and Technology)” Book Review: The book discusses Cost Effective Verification and Validation processes obtained in the European Research Project CECRIS (Certification of Critical Systems). The research was conducted to question the problems that are more difficult/important for present and upcoming critical systems industry wide that are the effective use of methodologies, processes and tools. The main focus of the project was developing strategies and techniques supported by automatic or semi-automatic tools and methods for these activities. It also aims at setting guidelines to support engineers during the planning of the verification and validation phases. The book explains several Topics such as Safety Assessment, Reliability Analysis, Critical Systems and Applications. Topics such as Functional Safety, Dependability Validation, Dependable Software Systems are also explained in detail. At last, it covers Embedded Systems and System Certification.

6. “Component-Based Software Development for Embedded Systems: An Overview of Current Research Trends (Lecture Notes in Computer Science)” by Colin Atkinson and Christian Bunse

“Component-Based Software Development for Embedded Systems: An Overview of Current Research Trends (Lecture Notes in Computer Science)” Book Review: The book covers the embedded system and its software. It starts with the detailed introduction about Component-Based Software Development for Embedded Systems. The book covers the topics such as Specification and Verification and Component Compatibility. Topics like Component Architectures, Implementation and Tool Support are explained in detail. Real time embedded systems based on extended UML is also covered. Adopting a Component-Based Software Architecture for an Industrial Control System topic is explained through a case study. In the end it provides an explanation about Non-functional Properties.
