Search-Based Crash Reproduction and Its Impact on Debugging

Mozhan Soltani, Annibale Panichella, Arie Van Deursen
2018 IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering  
We report on our empirical study on using EvoCrash to reproduce 54 real-world crashes, as well as the results of a controlled experiment, involving human participants, to assess the impact of EvoCrash  ...  When developers debug software, they need to reproduce the reported failure in order to verify whether their fix actually prevents the failure from happening again.  ...  In addition, the authors thank Marieke Huisman for reviewing the paper and providing constructive feedback.  ...

Mozhan Soltani, Annibale Panichella, Arie van Deursen
2017 2017 IEEE/ACM 39th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE)  
Our empirical study on three open-source systems shows that EvoCrash can replicate 41 (82%) of realworld crashes, 34 (89%) of which are useful reproductions for debugging purposes, outperforming the state-of-the-art  ...  To address these challenges, we present EvoCrash, a post-failure approach which uses a novel Guided Genetic Algorithm (GGA) to cope with the large search space characterizing real-world software programs  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT This research was partially funded by the EU Project STAMP ICT- No.731529, the Dutch 4TU project "Big Software on the Run" and National Research Fund, Luxembourg FNR/P10/03.  ...
