This book focuses on software sustainability, regarded in terms of how software is or can be developed while taking into consideration environmental, social, and economic dimensions. The sixteen chapters cover various related issues ranging from technical aspects like energy-efficient programming techniques, formal proposals related to energy efficiency measurement, patterns to build energy-efficient software, the role of developers on energy efficient software systems and tools for detecting and refactoring code smells/energy bugs; to human aspects like its impact on software sustainability or the adaptation of ACM/IEEE guidelines for student and professional education and; and an economics-driven architectural evaluation for sustainability. Also aspects as the elements of governance and management that organizations should consider when implementing, assessing and improving Green IT or the relationship between software sustainability and the Corporate Social Responsibility of software companies are included. The chapters are complemented by usage scenarios and experience reports on several domains as cloud applications, agile development or e-Health, among others. As a whole, the chapters provide a complete overview of the various issues related to sustainable software development.

The aim of this book is therefore to present the latest advances related to software sustainability, the scope being those pieces of work developed within the environmental (Green Software), human, or economic dimensions of software sustainability, by way of a contribution on our part to raising the profile of software sustainability. To that end, we have brought together the findings on this matter of the main researchers in the field.

Mobile applications are developed with limited battery resources in mind. To build energy-efficient mobile apps, many support tools have been developed which aid developers during the development and maintenance phases. To understand what is already available and what is still needed to support green Android development, we conducted a systematic mapping study to overview the state of the art and to identify further research opportunities. After applying inclusion/exclusion and quality criteria, we identified tools for detecting/refactoring code smells/energy bugs, and for detecting/migrating third-party libraries in Android applications. The main contributions of this study are: (1) classification of identified tools based on the support they offer to aid green Android development, (2) classification of the identified tools based on techniques used to offer support to developers, and (3) characterization of the identified tools based on the user interface, IDE integration, and availability. The most important finding is that the tools for detecting/migrating third-party libraries in Android development do not provide support to developers to optimize code w.r.t. energy consumption, which merits further research.

The target readership for this book includes CxOs, (e.g. Chief Information Officers, Chief Executive Officers, Chief Technology Officers, etc.) software developers, software managers, auditors, business owners, and quality professionals. It is also intended for students of software engineering and information systems, and software researchers who want to know the state of the art regarding software sustainability.
