Interactive Visualization of Bug Reports Using Topic Evolution and Extractive Summaries

Shamima Yeasmin, Chanchal K. Roy, Kevin A. Schneider
2014 2014 IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance and Evolution  
In this paper, we propose a prototype that assists developers review a project's bug reports by interactively visualizing insightful information regarding the bug reports using topic analysis.  ...  In addition, in order to reduce developers' time and efforts when studying a bug report, the proposed prototype also provides an extractive summary visualization of each bug report.  ...  However, We applies topic modeling on a collection of bug reports and produces a visual topic-based analysis.  ...

GIFdroid: Automated Replay of Visual Bug Reports for Android Apps [article]

Sidong Feng, Chunyang Chen
2022 arXiv   pre-print
To overcome these issues, we propose GIFdroid, a light-weight approach to automatically replay the execution trace from visual bug reports.  ...  Therefore, more and more users begin to record the screen for reporting bugs as it is easy to be created and contains detailed procedures triggering the bug.  ...  But note that this motivational study just aims to provide an initial analysis towards developers supporting visual bug reports, and a more comprehensive empirical study would be needed to deeply understand  ...

2022 arXiv   pre-print
However, the combination of web, GUI, and visual techniques that are required to build applications, together with the lack of testing and debugging tools, makes developing such applications very challenging  ...  Second, we constructed our taxonomy by manually classifying a statistically representative random sample of 332 bug reports.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The research reported in this article has been supported by Prodigy Education and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada under the Alliance Grant project ALLRP  ...

Verification-Aided Debugging: An Interactive Web-Service for Exploring Error Witnesses [chapter]

Dirk Beyer, Matthias Dangl
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Can the error report later be re-used for bug fixing or regression testing?  ...  Our first component collects witnesses and stores them for later re-use; for example, if the bug is fixed, the witness can be tried once again and should now be rejected, or, if the bug was not scheduled  ...  and interactive web-based bug report.  ...
