Automatically Repairing Programs Using Both Tests and Bug Reports [article]

Manish Motwani, Yuriy Brun
2022 arXiv   pre-print
This paper develops a new fault localization (FL) technique that combines information from bug reports and test executions and uses it to improve the quality of program repair.  ...  Our findings that FL can be improved by combining multiple sources of information, and that program repair benefits greatly from improved FL suggest a fruitful direction for research into both FL and program  ...  Discussion and threats to validity We assume that both bug-exposing tests and bug reports are available to repair tools.  ...

A Comprehensive Study of Automatic Program Repair on the QuixBugs Benchmark [article]

He Ye, Matias Martinez, Thomas Durieux, Martin Monperrus

A critical review of "automatic patch generation learned from human-written patches": essay on the problem statement and the evaluation of automatic software repair

Martin Monperrus
2014 Proceedings of the 36th International Conference on Software Engineering - ICSE 2014  
At ICSE'2013, there was the first session ever dedicated to automatic program repair. In this session, Kim et al. presented PAR, a novel template-based approach for fixing Java bugs.  ...  First, we aim at explaining why we disagree with Kim and colleagues and why the reasons behind this disagreement are important for research on automatic software repair in general.  ...  Automatic software repair also much relates to software testing (w.r.t. the techniques used to detect and diagnose the bugs), to program synthesis (when it comes to create a correct piece of code), and  ...

Automatic Repair of Real Bugs: An Experience Report on the Defects4J Dataset [article]

Matias Martinez and Thomas Durieux and Jifeng Xuan and Romain Sommerard and Martin Monperrus
2015 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we report on an experiment to explore the effectiveness of automatic repair on Defects4J.  ...  This analysis shows that test-suite based repair suffers from under-specified bugs, for which trivial and incorrect patches still pass the test suite.  ...  To us, Defects4J is the best dataset of real world Java bugs, both in terms of size and quality.  ...

A Survey of Test Based Automatic Program Repair

Yuzhen Liu, Long Zhang, Zhenyu Zhang
2018 Journal of Software  
Hence automatic program repair techniques, especially the test-based approaches, have drawn great attentions in recent years.  ...  When a bug is located, manually fixing it to repair the buggy program is still a difficult and laborious task for developers.  ...  When a program is reported as buggy, repairing work is supposed to be done to locate and analyze the fault. Automatic repair usually adapts the step of automatic fault localization ahead.  ...
