Java decompiler diversity and its application to meta-decompilation

Nicolas Harrand, César Soto-Valero, Martin Monperrus, Benoit Baudry
2020 Journal of Systems and Software  
During compilation from Java source code to bytecode, some information is irreversibly lost. In other words, compilation and decompilation of Java code is not symmetric.  ...  Different Java decompilers use distinct strategies to achieve proper decompilation.  ...  Acknowledgments This work has been partially supported by the Wallenberg Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP) funded by Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation and by the TrustFull project funded  ...

Equivalent Version Sets Testing Method for Android Applications based on Code Analysis

Song Huang
2019 International Journal of Performability Engineering  
It analyzes the decompiled code that identifies the code related to the Android SDK version and then generates the corresponding test cases.  ...  Moreover, the method coverage of these applications increased by an average of 49.3% on all versions and 46.8% on equivalent test runtime-environment-set, respectively.  ...  The decompiled files can be reprogramed, recompiled, and packaged to achieve the purpose of personalized customization. Through the decompiling app, we can obtain the java code like Figure 3 .  ...

Darwin: a static analysis dataset of malicious and benign Android apps

Nuthan Munaiah, Casey Klimkowsky, Shannon McRae, Adam Blaine, Samuel A. Malachowsky, Cesar Perez, Daniel E. Krutz
2016 Proceedings of the International Workshop on App Market Analytics - WAMA 2016  
Each app was analyzed using several static analysis tools to collect a variety of quality and security related information.  ...  Unfortunately, Android apps are not immune to issues that plague conventional software including security vulnerabilities, bugs, and permission-based problems.  ...  To better detect and defend against malware, we need to understand more about it: how it is created, evolves, and its common characteristics.  ...
