Abstract:Efficient, texture representation is important, in search and retrieval of similar texture patterns from a large image database. There has been research on texture feature extraction by finding the Spatial/frequency distribution of the patterns with tools like the Gabor filters, Pyramid-structured wavelet transform, and Multi wavelet transform. In this paper, content based image retrieval method is used, to retrieve the images from the database according to their similarity to the Query image. The aim of this project is to retrieve the images using multi wavelet. Firstly, we calculate the multi wavelet of all images in database.secondly, to calculate the energy and then distance between query and database images.

Abstract: CONTEXT- Offshore software development outsourcing (OSDO) is an important paradigm of global software development. OSDO is a famous business strategy adopted by many organizations in developed countries by outsourcing their software development work to low-wages countries. OSDO offers many benefits to clients organization including high quality software products, authorized and skilled human resources at economical cost. However outsourcing is not a risk free business. Vendor organizations need to address a
number of factors for successful outcomes of the outsourcing relationships. Likewise portfolio cost management (PCM) plays an important role in OSDO relationships............

Country : India
Authors : K.Arunasri, Mrs. K. Srimathi

Abstract: Wireless sensor network (WSN) have diverse field of application, but it is extremely much prone to the security threats. This paper proposes a lightweight, fast, efficient and mobile agent technology based security solution against cloning attack and doline attack for wireless sensor networks (WSNs). WSN has a dynamic topology, irregular connectivity, and resource constrained device nodes. Researchers over the past years have confident the use of mobile agent to overcome these challenges. The proposed scheme is to defend next to cloning attack and doline attacks using mobile agents. Mobile agent is a program section which is selfcontrolling. They navigate from node to node not only transmitting data but also doing computation..............

Abstract: A Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) comprises set of mobile nodes which forms different networking infrastructure in ad hoc manner. Multicasting a group oriented communication approach plays a vital role in this mobile infrastructure less networks as it finds applications in major fields such as military warfare, emergency situations, Conventions etc. This paper surveys and discusses considerable number of multicast routing protocols of network layers as there exists several interesting tasks from formation of multicast session, cooperation of nodes to ending of multicast session, along with its advantages and disadvantages. It also provides various issues and challenges to be considered for designing such protocols for its use in MANET.

Title : Query- And User-Dependent Approach for Ranking Query Results in Web Databases
Country : India
Authors : Sruthi Ambati, Raghava Rao
: 10.9790/0661-0663643     logo

Abstract: Internet has paved the way for the emergence of web databases. Querying such databases for required information has become a common task. Ranking such query results is an open problem to be addressed. The existing solutions such as user profiles, query logs, and database values perform ranking in user independent and/or query independent fashion. This can't provide efficient ranking. This paper presents a new approach known as Query and User Dependent Ranking for giving ranking to query results of deep web. The proposed ranking framework is based on two fundamental aspects to the problem of ranking query results. They are query similarity and user similarity. These similarities are exploited to make efficient ranking of query results. A prototype application is built to test the efficiency of our model. The empirical results revealed that our approach is efficient and can be used in real world applications.

Title : A New Metric for Code Readability
Country : India
Authors : Rajendar Namani, Kumar J

Abstract: Code readability is very important in software development process. It has relationship with software quality. In this paper we define a new readability metric that can be used to measure the readability of given source code. From senior software engineers we collected some rules and then deduced them into a metric which can be used to measure the readability of code. Moreover we implemented some of the existing readability metrics such as Automated Readability Index (ARI), Gunning's Fox Index (FOG) and SMOG programmatically. The results of these metrics are compared with the each other. We have developed a prototype application that takes source code as input and applies metric. The metric generates readability statistics. The input code is given to 50 software engineers and asked them to provide the percentage of readability of code. The percentage given by them is compared with the proposed application generated statistics. The results revealed that both are closely matching and the proposed metric can be used in the real world applications.

Keywords: Code readability, readability metrics, software development life cycle, and software quality.

Abstract: This paper introduces a new approach to the Secured hash algorithm. The proposed algorithms takes the variable length input bit sequence and generate the fix length output as according to the algorithm. There are many constant values, used functions, pre-processing and hashing in SHA[1][2][3][4]. Here introducing new technique in which shifting of bits in pre-processing are not fixed but depends on the counts of bits in input sequence.
