UML Sequence Diagram Based Test Case Extraction and Testing for Ensuring Reliability of Web Applications
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 9, issue 1, 2004, Pages 1~19
The systematic testing is frequently regretted in recent web applications because of time and cost pressure. Moreover developers have difficulties with applying the traditional testing techniques to testing web application. The approach of creating test cases for a web application from a sequence model is proposed for the rapid and efficient testing. Test cases for web application are extracted from call messages (including self-call messages) of UML (Unified Modeling Language) sequence diagram. A test case consists of messages, script functions, or server pages and additional values. Moreover a simple testing tool for web application is proposed. A URL for testing web application is created and executed by this testing tool. The URL consists of server page address and additional values. This test tool is made using Microsoft Visual Basic. The efficiency of proposed method and tool has been shown using a practical case study which reflects the development project of the web application for supporting member management.
Implementation of an XML-Based Editor/Transformer for Large Volume of Similar Documents
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 9, issue 1, 2004, Pages 21~38
With its recent popularity, Web is now considered as a huge repository of information. Most documents on the web have been created using HTML(Hyper Text Markup Language). Even though HTML is simple and easy to learn, it has several features that are obstacles to the efficient information retrieval. XML(eXtensible Markup Language) can provide a solution to such problems and in fact, has already been used in many applications, XML is a standard markup language for exchanging data on the web. It can describe a document structure freely by defining its DTD, which enables efficient integration and retrieval of data on the web. In this paper, we propose a versatile and efficient XML document manager. Its features include (i) form-based XML editor that enables easy creation of new XML documents, (ii) automatic document converter that can transform HTML documents with similar structure into XML documents automatically, and (iii) GUI-based DTD editor.
A Study on B2B Workflow Integration Technology
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 9, issue 1, 2004, Pages 39~59
E-business automates overall activities in a company and allows distributed systems to communicate their information. The automation and information sharing improves its productivity and responsiveness. B2B workflow systems progress their business processes electronically and help the companies to monitor their execution and administrate the processes. This research analyzes the technologies and standards for B2B workflow integration, and proposes three approaches to implement effectively workflow integration. We analyze several existing workflow standards and business process definition languages, and compare their structures and features. And we examine the messaging technologies and architectures to implement business integration. Finally we extract a reference model for B2B workflow integration, and propose three types of workflow integration and implementation designs. This research helps companies to understand the workflow standards and the messaging technologies for B2B workflow integration, and to implement workflow integration systems that are suitable for their e-business environments.
Developing LCMS-Based e-Learning System utilizing Component-Based Development
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 9, issue 1, 2004, Pages 61~81
Learning Contents Management System(LCMS) manages the contents and the process of teaming by incorporating the both in a flexible system to help learners to be able to utilize them efficiently. The e-Learning comprises all types of educations based on electronic technologies as well as the Web. The existing e-Learning system is a simple information system providing Web based contents, therefore, it cannot support flexibility for both learners and teachers. The core part of the e-Learning system should be a remote education system which creates bilateral response between the learners and teachers, by providing substantial contents based on the LCMS. In this paper, a new e-Learning system is constructed with reusable modules generated by Component-Based software Development(CBD). Furthermore, creates new contents groups and enables to develop learning courses utilizing the Learning Objects. And also, observing the SCORM standard, lecture contents are designed and prepared to support learners Learners are supported to produce profiles which enables themselves to manage, measure, and evaluate their own capabilities, so that they can develop themselves properly in accordance with their levels, build prototypes for self development. Also a system that comprises all these individual components is suggested.
Comparison of Directory Structures for SAN Based Very Large File Systems
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 9, issue 1, 2004, Pages 83~104
Recently, information systems that require storage and retrieval of huge amount of data are becoming used widely. Accordingly, research efforts have been made to develop Linux cluster file systems in the SAN environment in which clients themselves can manage metadata and access data directly. Also a semi-flat directory structure based on extendible hashing has been proposed to support fast retrieval of files. In this research, we have designed and implemented the semi-flat extendible hash directory under the Linux system. In order to evaluate the practicality of the directory, we have also implemented the B+-tree based directory and experimented the performance. According to the performance comparisons, the extendible hash directory has the better performance at insert, delete, and search operations. On the other hand, the B+-tree directory is better at sorting files.
A study on Business Process Model for Extended and Integrated Supply Chain Planning : Focused on Negotiation
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 9, issue 1, 2004, Pages 105~122
The advance of information technology has changed the business environment, and the business process between the trading partners has been evolved with these changes. However, the business process between trading partners requires human interface for interchanging information or making a decision even though they collaborate each other or are coupled tightly, and this interrupts seamless business processes between them. To overcome this limitations, a new concept of self-integration has been emerged. The self-integration means a true integration among enterprise applications without human interface, and it might be the future direction of integrations. In this study, we introduced the concept of self-integration environment and business process model for supply chain planning. And, we analyzed the negotiation processes and classified the negotiation patterns for integrated supply chain planning in self-integration environment, and then we proposed a generic business process model for negotiation of extended and integrated supply chain planning by integrating the suggested negotiation pattern with business scenarios.
A Study on the Evaluation Model for CMS using the AHP
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 9, issue 1, 2004, Pages 123~137
Despite the increasing interest in web contents and the rapid growth of CMS(Content Management System) market, the studies on the evaluation criteria for determining the purchase of the CMS solution are very rare. We introduce previous researches on the evaluation models of IT solution, and develop new criteria for evaluating CMS solutions. We calculate the relative importance of the evaluation criteria using scores from the IT experts based on the "Pair-wise Comparison" using the AHP. Based on the analyses of IT specialists′ responses, the results of the study show that, among the ten criteria, "the function of content management", "the contribution to the company′s business process" and "the fit with Information Strategic Plan" are the three most important ones over the remaining others. The developed model and criteria for the evaluation of the CMS solutions are expected to contribute on effective purchasing decision of the solutions and their successful implementation.
Workflow based storing model for XML documents
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 9, issue 1, 2004, Pages 139~154
Recent business environments require a company to communicate frequently with other companies. This makes it essential to use XML (eXtensible Markup Language) documents for integration of information systems. Especially in e-Business environments, change management of documents is important to record and trace the history of the documents. In this paper, we propose a new method of storing a document by detecting changes automatically and reconstructing the document version when a user requests. In addition, based on the method, we also propose a model to recover a document into previous state even when system errors occur. A prototype system is implemented on top of a workflow system and an experiment is carried out to present efficiency of our method. Our approach provides efficiency of storage space and convenient management of documents.
An Study on the Information Promotion Policies for the Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises - Based upon CEO's Intention-
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 9, issue 1, 2004, Pages 155~177
In today's business environments, corporate globalization and collaboration in an industry are strongly required. In order to cope with such requirements, the industry's informationization must be made. However, compared to large-sized companies, the SMEs(small and medium-sized enterprises) have inferior capacities for their organizational information due to limited management resources. Among many factors for promoting information in SMEs, one of the most factors is CEO's intention. Thus, this paper discusses the promotion policies for infomationization in SMEs from the perspective of CEO's intention. Based upon the survey results, the paper proposes some information promotion policies for SMEs.

Design of the Workflow Interoperability System Using Mobile Agent
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 9, issue 1, 2004, Pages 197~208
As the structure of an enterprise becomes complicated and distributed, the interoperability between workflow systems for the process automation among partners or departments is rising as an important issue. For the interoperability between workflow systems, we propose a data exchange scenario based on mobile agents. The scenario includes sequence diagrams and methods defined by UML. The mobile agents are designed based on the mobile agent standard, MASIF, developed by OMG. In order to prove the applicability of the mobile agent technology to workflow interoperability, we have developed a prototype function which creates and transfers mobile agents.
Design of GE subgroup based User Authentication Protocol For efficient Electric Commerce
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 9, issue 1, 2004, Pages 209~220
If protocol has fast operations and short key length, it can be efficient user authentication protocol. Lenstra and Verheul proposed XTR. XTR have short key length and fast computing speed. Therefore, this can be used usefully in complex arithmetic. In this paper, to design efficient user authentication protocol we used a subgroup of Galois Field to problem domain. Proposed protocol does not use GF(p/sup 6/) that is existent finite field, and uses GF(p²) that is subgroup and solves problem. XTR-ElGamal based user authentication protocol reduced bit number that is required when exchange key by doing with upside. Also, proposed protocol provided easy calculation and execution by reducing required overhead when calculate. In this paper, we designed authentication protocol with y/sub i/ = g/sup b.p/sup 2(i-1)//ㆍv mol q, 1(equation omitted) 3 that is required to do user authentication.

The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 9, issue 1, 2004, Pages 221~235
Many organizations are implementing Knowledge Management(KM) technologies to promote knowledge sharing. An extensive review of recent articles and journals about such implementations reveals that one of the main barriers to implementation of KM technology is the absence of an organizational culture that supports knowledge sharing. The purpose of this research is to explore the possible relationship between the successful implementation of knowledge management technology and specific organizational culture attributes. The Organizational Culture Profile(OCP) and the Knowledge Management Technology Profile(KMTP) instruments were used to identify and rank the most critical organizational culture attributes and KM technology implementation successes. Data were collected from twenty six US organizations involved in a KM efforts.

User authentication is indispensable in computer login and internet banking. Usability as well as security is needed in user authentication software. To develop the software systematically, development process must be defined, and it can result in the improvement of software maturity. In this paper, a process needed to develop user authentication software systematically is proposed from experience of developing visual password input software. This process is composed of 6 phases and 15 activities. It is able to improve usability with its requirement analysis, planning, integration testing, and acceptance testing activity.
Developing a Test Tool for Electronic Book Standard Conformance
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 9, issue 1, 2004, Pages 269~284
EBKS(Electronic Book of Korea Standard) 1.0 which was established in July 2001 passed the industry standard deliberation of agency for technology and standards of Korea industry in July 2002. EBKS is now established as KS X6100 representing the Korea standard of electronic book of Korea. Therefore, Conformance test and certification procedure is required whether electronic books and documents which follow KS X 6100 are conform to specification of the standard. In the paper, we define conformance clause which is a basis for conformance test and standard electronic book schema. As a result, electronic book writers can produce more conformable documents to the specification and goal of electronic book standard by using the conformance clause, and service provider can effectively perform the conformance test by using standard electronic book schema.
Architecture Modeling for Kiosk-based Public Services through Web
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 9, issue 1, 2004, Pages 285~301
Public service provision through internet is one of major parts for e-government implementation. It is essential to link the internal administrative network with internet to provide the services through internet and to support kiosks through internet, which should result in critical issues for security. A relay server, as a front server for the public service processing system and a web server, a control server for kiosks, are placed between the public service processing system and kiosks to solve those security issues. It is the way to solve security issues through protecting direct communication between the public service processing system and a web server and authenticating a relay server and a web server through authentication process. In the implementation of the system this paper provide a design for an architecture model of the public service processing system through internet, which are aiming to develop high level of the quality system effectively, to reduce the risk of initial stage of development, and to reduce the incurring cost due to reworks.
A Study on Test Module of Smart Cards in Electronic Payment Systems
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 9, issue 1, 2004, Pages 303~320
Smart card is a useful tool used in electronic payment systems and it is very important to test whether a smart card operates correctly. In this paper, we analyze previous researches on testing smart cards, such as ISO/IEC and KS standard documents, and Guideline of Card Quality Test. We also propose the functional test results done on the Highpassplus card of Korea Highway Corporation. By testing the Hipgpassplus card we can get card systems with reliable functionality and security. Furthermore, this can help developing more reliable security systems. The test results of the Highpassplus card proposed in this paper are the first research on testing smart cards in services in Korea and we expect that the test methods of smart card will be advanced based on our results.
