FZI Prize "Best Diploma Thesis"
Fabian Brosig from the Descartes Research Group wins the FZI Prize "Best Diploma Thesis"
Fabian Brosig from the Descartes Research Group was awarded the FZI (Forschungszentrum Informatik) Prize "Best Diploma Thesis" for his diploma thesis with the title "Automated Extraction of Palladio Component Models from Running Enterprise Java Applications" supervised by Samuel Kounev and Klaus Krogmann. The work of the thesis was carried out in close cooperation with Oracle Corp. The thesis presents an approach for automated extraction of performance models (Palladio Component Models) of Java EE applications, based on monitoring data collected during operation. The model extraction method is evaluated in the context of a case study with a real-world enterprise application and demonstrates that the existing gap between low-level monitoring data and high-level performance models can be closed.
The results of the thesis were published in the following two papers available online:
