Analyzing Anti-pattern Detection
Southern Methodist University

A design pattern is a well-understood, reusable design fragment used to solve a commonly occurring problem in software development. Whereas, antipatterns are common design pitfalls that provide poor solutions to recurring design problems. Developers may unwillingly introduce anti-patterns in their software systems due to time pressure, lack of skills, communication or understanding. Anti-patterns have a negative effect on the comprehension and maintainability of a software system, and thus, understanding and detecting Anti-patterns provides the knowledge to prevent or recover from them.
This paper discusses the anti-patterns of object oriented design, their symptoms, and consequences and issues related to their detection. This study also discusses some of the tools and approaches that are currently being developed and used in the software industry to detect anti-pattern. Towards the end, this paper also highlights some of the problems that are still open, to drive future research direction in this field.

1. Introduction
Now-a-days, most of the software projects deal with large number of components that make the software more complicated and hard for novice designers to design. A design pattern is one of the most simple and powerful techniques used to improve the software design. Unfortunately, due to a number of market/customers constraints, anti-patterns may get introduced into the software systems and deteriorate its software quality. Hence, anti-patterns need to be carefully detected and monitored and, consequently, refactoring operations should be planned and performed to deal with them.
In this paper, we will focus to present the different types of anti-patterns in object-oriented design, their symptoms and consequences, and the challenges and

Real-Time Fraud Detection

...severely affected by fraud over the past few years. Indeed, despite all the research and systems available, fraudsters have been able to outsmart and deceive the banks and their customers. With this in mind, we intend to introduce a novel and multi-purpose technology known as Stream Computing, as the basis for a Fraud Detection solution. Indeed, we believe that this architecture will stimulate research, and more importantly organizations, to invest in Analytics and Statistical Fraud-Scoring to be used in conjunction with the already in-place preventive techniques. Therefore, in this research we explore different strategies to build a Streambased Fraud Detection solution, using advanced Data Mining Algorithms and Statistical Analysis, and show how they lead to increased accuracy in the detection of fraud by at least 78% in our reference dataset. We also discuss how a combination of these strategies can be embedded in a Stream-based application to detect fraud in real-time. From this perspective, our experiments lead to an average processing time of 111,702ms per transaction, while strategies to further improve the performance are discussed.

Intrusion Detection Systems

...Intrusion Detection Systems CMIT368 August 12, 2006 Introduction As technology has advanced, information systems have become an integral part of every day life. In fact, there are not too many public or private actions that can take part in today’s society that do not include some type of information system at some level or another. While information systems make our lives easier in most respects, our dependency upon them has become increasingly capitalized upon by persons with malicious intent. Therefore, security within the information systems realm has introduced a number of new devices and software to help combat the unfortunate results of unauthorized network access, identity theft, and the like – one of which is the intrusion detection system, or IDS. Intrusion detection systems are primarily used to detect unauthorized or unconventional accesses to systems and typically consist of a sensor, monitoring agent (console), and the core engine. The sensor is used to detect and generate the security events, the console is used to control the sensor and monitor the events/alarms it produces, and the engine compares rules against the events database generated by the sensors to determine which events have the potential to be an attack or not (Wikipedia, 2006, para. 1-3). IDS generally consist of two types – signature-based and anomaly-based. Signature-based IDS operate by comparing network traffic against a known database of attack categories. In......

Detection of Ovulation

...Preventive Powers of Ovulation and Progesterone Detection of Ovulation by Dr. Jerilynn C. Prior, Scientific Director, Centre for Menstrual Cycle and Ovulation Research. I believe that ovulation with a normal luteal phase length – and normal amounts of progesterone to counterbalance and complement estrogen – is of key importance for women’s bone, breast and heart health (see Ovulatory Disturbances - They Do Matter [PDF]). In the last issue we discussed how you, personally, can tell that you are ovulating using the Molimina Question, recording and analyzing your basal temperature using quantitative methods (called QBT), and possibly using the over-the counter fertility test detecting the mid-cycle luteinizing hormone (LH) peak. We will now look at the medical methods for diagnosis of ovulation. How can a doctor tell if I am ovulating? For some physicians, especially those who specialize in fertility management, all methods for detecting ovulation (short of doing an operation and observing the egg actually squirting out of the ovary-see figure) are indirect and therefore considered inferior. There are three different, indirect medical methods that are commonly used to diagnose ovulation and normal progesterone action: 1) a series of ultrasounds of the ovary across the mid-cycle; 2) a biopsy of the uterine lining about a week after expected ovulation to see if the cells show evidence for progesterone action; and 3) taking one or several measurements of estrogen and progesterone...

Intrusion Detection

...Term paper cyber security awareness -Topic- Network intrusion detection methods INTRODUCTION Intrusions are the activities that violate the security policy of the system, and intrusion detection is the process used to identify intrusions. Intrusion Detection Systems look for attack signatures, which are specific patterns that usually indicate malicious or suspicious intent. Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs) are usually deployed along with other preventive security mechanisms, such as access control and authentication, as a second line of defense that protects information systems. Intrusion detection provides a way to identify and thus allow responses to, attacks against these systems. Second, due to the limitations of information security and software engineering practice, computer systems and applications may have design flaws or bugs that could be used by an intruder to attack the systems or applications. As a result, certain preventive mechanisms (e.g., firewalls) may not be as effective as expected. Intrusion detection complements these protective mechanisms to improve the system security. Moreover, even if the preventive security mechanisms can protect information systems successfully, it is still desirable to know what intrusions have happened or are happening, so that we can understand the security threats and risks and thus be better prepared for future attacks. IDSs may be classified into Host-Based IDSs, Distributed IDSs, and Network-Based IDSs......

Aviation Weather Detection

... Improvements in Weather Detection in Aviation Anfernee Emerenciana Florida Institute of Technology Abstract When it comes to flying, planning is everything; one of the biggest things that pilots need to take in to account is namely the weather. There are two key components when it comes to weather planning: forecasting and detection. The FAA and other meteorological organizations are continuously coming up with improvements and new ways to give pilots the necessary weather information needed in order successfully and safely do the flight. This paper will discuss how weather detection and forecasting have improved over the years, what the current developments are, and also what is still left to be done in order to ensure proper planning and overall safety for the flight The Federal Aviation Administration is a federal branch that focuses on the overall safety and regulations in regards to aviation in the United States. A pilot is required to get a weather briefing before each flight. These weather briefings are offered by the FAA in conjunction with Lockheed Martin. The weather briefings provide weather information products that give important information in regards to winds, cloud ceilings, icing hazards and turbulence. According to Gloria J Kulesa (2004), the weather phenomena’s that have the greatest impacts are: in-flight icing, turbulence, convective weather, cloud ceilings and visibilities. While traveling, one of the greatest annoyances is flight delays. Most......

Intrusion Detection

...Intrusion detection Intrusion detection is a means of supervising the events that occur in a computer system or network. This includes examining them for traces of possible incidents that are in violations or threats of violation of computer security policies, acceptable use policies, or standard security practices (Ogunleye & Ogunde, 2011). Intrusion detection is become more than ever an important focus of many organization. This focus is driven by the availability of more information systems and globalization through the use of the internet. The market place is no longer the residents of a small town going to the local mall, but services online available to anyone with a web browser. With all this access vastly multiplies the possibilities of one masked robber in a year to thousands of wrong dowers at a desktop or laptop that has discovered vulnerability in the system and decides to take the chance to exploit it. There are various approaches an organization can use to deal with many of the problems that exist with securing an information system. Jain’s (2008) article from the ICFAI Journal of Information Technology depicts a scenario of a network intrusion detection team and how situation can be averted: …The hackers started with slating down the objectives of their ‘Limited Knowledge Penetration Testing’, also referred to as ‘White Box Approach’, and gathered sufficient information to ensure that the testing did not affect the normal business operations. They emulated a...

Rapid Detection of Nicotine

...No. 6 ARTIFICIAL HEARTS IN MANKIND 353 A RAPID TECHNIQUE FOR THE DETECTION OF NICOTINE IN DEVELOPING TOBACCO SEEDLINGS1' 2 PEI-HSING LIN WU AND WILLIAM R. SHARP Department of Botany and Institute of Polar Studies, and Department of Microbiology, The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio 4S210 ABSTRACT A rapid and sensitive method for detecting alkaloids, in particular nicotine, from Nicotiana rustica tobacco seedlings up to 2 mm in length has been developed. Growing tissue is applied (squashed) directly onto silica gel plates for thin-layer chromotographic analysis. The sensitivity of this method permits the detection of quantities of nicotine as small as 0.4 microgram. INTRODUCTION During the course of our study on the chemical patterns of plant growth and development (Peters et al., 1972), it was necessary to use rapid procedures to analyze chemical contents of growing tissues. The present study deals with the development of a procedure for the rapid detection of the alkaloids. The histochemical detection of alkaloids in growing tissues, as demonstrated by others (Chaze, 1932; James, 1950), is based on the reaction with iodine in potassium iodide solution. These methods are complicated by the presence of carbohydrates and proteins, which also react positively to iodine in potassium iodide solution. James (1946) was able to overcome the difficulty of liberating alkaloids from denatured proteins by blotting the tissue on filter paper prior to other treatment;...

...Analyzing Psychological Disorder By Steven Smith Psy/240 First I would like to thank you for this opportunity that you are giving me. A part of this opportunity that you have given me contains two parts, A and B. In part A, I will analyze schizophrenia a psychiatric disease that is well known. I will take you on the journey of how schizophrenia affects the brain, neural basis, causes, symptoms, and drug therapies of this psychiatric disease. In part B we will continue our journey through a bio-psychologist’s perspective on the following two case studies; the first one will be about a teenager named Beth who has severe eating disorder name anorexia. The second will be about a single mother named Mary, who has a sleep disorder known as Insomnia. In both cases I will determine the relationship with nature-nurture issue, drug interventions or solutions, and the positive and negative aspects of the solutions or drug interventions. Part A: Schizophrenia: Causes, Symptoms and Treatments The psychiatric disease schizophrenia as describe by John P.J. Pinel in the seventh edition of Biopsychology, is the “splitting of psychic functions”. There is not a specific race or cultural group that will end up with schizophrenia. Experts have not pin pointed what cause schizophrenia, but they believe it is a combination of factor from genetics to environmental. Schizophrenia...

Lab 4: Edge Detection in Images

...Lab 4: Edge Detection in Images A. Background Information Edge detection is a common, but very important method for analyzing images. It can be used to help identify objects in a scene or features of an object. It is widely used in biometrics security applications to identify facial features or fingerprints. The example below shows the process of edge detection applied to a picture of a bike next to a brick wall. As can be seen, edge detection easily shows the outline of the bike, the bricks in the wall, and even the writing on the bike. | | Edge Detection Example: Original Image (left) and Edge Detected Image (right) | So how does edge detection work? The first step in understanding the process is to understand what an edge is in an image. If you were to look at the values of in an image along a single row or column, you would see something that looks like this: Bricks Bricks Grout Lines Grout Lines This is actually the graph of the pixel values from the first row of the original picture shown above. What you are seeing here are the individual dark colored bricks that make up the top border of the image. The bricks themselves are the lower and relatively flat sections, while the lighter colored grout between the bricks is represented by the sharp peaks. With this understanding, we can see that an edge (a sharp change in color) is represented by a large change in the pixel value. In order to locate the areas that have these drastic......

However, when we used serve as good features for emotion classification. a convolutional neural network, we received 65% classification accuracy. 1.3 1 Support vector machines are widely used in classification problems, and is an optimization problem that can be solved in its dual form, Introduction Detecting facial expressions is an area of research within computer vision that has been studied extensively, using many different approaches. In the past, work on facial image analysis concerned robust detection and identification of individuals [5]. More recently, work has expanded into classification of faces based on features extracted from facial data, as done in [6], and using more complex systems like convolutional neural networks, as done in [1] and [2]. In our project, we compared classification using features manually extracted from facial images against classification using a convolutional neural net, which learns the significant features of images through convolutional and pooling neural layers. The two manual feature extraction methods we explored were principal component analysis (PCA) and facial landmark detection. These extracted features were then classified using a kernel support vector machine (SVM) and a......

Advertisement Detection

...boxes or software that detect and discard the commercials on the broadcast TV signal. Study in the field of the advertisement identification is segmented into various manners. It can be dependent on the audio or video information or an amalgamation of both. There are some works by A. G. Hauptmann and M. J. Witbrock (2006) that use the verbatim data achieved from the text streams, or the optical character recognition or speech identification for segmentation. In work proposed by L.-Y. Duan et al (2007) it has been given that using usual features of advertisement blocks like frames and silence amid commercials to identify cuts and categorize commercials dependent on OCR. In this work there have been two varied use cases for the commercial detection 1. Identify broadcast of recognized commercials with large precision something like the use of fingerprinting 2. Identify earlier not known commercials. Next segmentation is to differentiate amid the methodologies on online instantaneous or offline processing. A few approaches require investigating the entire video to identify the maximums and to calculate attributes with progressive requirements, while the rest depend on the fly identification of the advertisements. Also there are variations amidst the advertisement identification in the compressed and uncompressed realm. Identification in a compact domain is quick also it is quite a perplexing task and the identification rates are less as compared to the......
