    Static analysis tools are useful to find potential bugs and security vulnerabilities in a source code, however, false alarms from such tools lower their usability. In order to reduce various kinds of false alarms and enhance the performance of the tools, we propose a machine learning based false alarm reduction method. Abstract syntax trees (AST) are used to represent structural characteristics an... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (223 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In case of safety-critical embedded systems, software must have high availability to provide non-stop and reliable service. Therefore, we want to measure the availability of our system. However, using past methods, it takes a long time to measure availability because of irregular occurrence of faults. In this paper, we present SYNCEYE, which is a kind of fast availability measurement tool. To get ... View full abstract»

    Because safety analysis is one of the corner stones in ISO-26262 software development, it is important to provide practical safety analysis techniques. FMEA is one of the most widely applied techniques in safety analysis and, thus, it is valuable to enhance its practicality. In this paper we propose the enhancement of HAZOP guide words approach for SW FMEA. The key idea behind our enhancement is t... View full abstract»

  • API Document Quality for Resolving Deprecated APIs

    Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):27 - 30
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (281 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Using deprecated APIs often results in security vulnerability or performance degradation. Thus, invocations to deprecated APIs should be immediately replaced by alternative APIs. To resolve deprecated APIs, most developers rely on API documents provided by service API libraries. However, the documents often do not have sufficient information. This makes many deprecated API usages remain unresolved... View full abstract»

    Free/Libre Open Source Software (FLOSS) community management is an important issue. Contributor churn (joining or leaving a project) causes failure of the majority of software projects. In this paper, we present a framework to characterize stability of the community in software maintenance projects by mining Issue Tracking System (ITS). We identify key stability indicators and propose metrics to m... View full abstract»

    Stack Exchange (SE) is a network of popular Community based Question and Answering (CQA) websites. Each SE Q&A website is created to address questions on specific user interest or domain. However, often users post questions on SE websites that do not match the domain of the website. Such questions are considered as Off-topic for the origin site. Off-topic questions must be detected and migrate... View full abstract»

  • An Empirical Study on Interaction Factors Influencing Bug Reopenings

    Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):39 - 42
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (122 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Bugs can be reopened after they have been closed due to identification of the actual cause, previous incorrect fixing, or better reproducing, etc. Reopened bugs may increase the cost in maintenance, degrade the overall quality of the software product, reduce the trust of users, and bring unnecessary work to the already-busy developers. To minimize the occurrence of bug reopenings, the potential ca... View full abstract»

    It is important for project stakeholders to identify the states of projects and quality of products. Although metrics are useful for identifying them, it is difficult for project stake-holders to select appropriate metrics and determine the purpose of measuring metrics. We propose an approach that defines the measured metrics by GQM method to identify tendency in projects and products based on Tre... View full abstract»

    This paper focuses on comments described in Java programs, and conducts an empirical analysis about relationships between comments and fault-proneness in the programs. The types of comments analyzed in this paper are comments described inside a method body (inner comments), and comments followed by a method declaration (documentation comments). Although both of them play important roles in the pro... View full abstract»
