Study of an API Migration for Two XML APIs [chapter]

Thiago Tonelli Bartolomei, Krzysztof Czarnecki, Ralf Lämmel, Tijs van der Storm
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
That is, we study wrapper-based migration between two prominent XML APIs for the Java platform.  ...  API migration is much less understood for the general case where the two APIs have been developed more or less independently of each other.  ...  Acknowledgements This work is partially supported by IBM Centers for Advanced Studies, Toronto.  ...

How Does Web Service API Evolution Affect Clients?

Jun Li, Yingfei Xiong, Xuanzhe Liu, Lu Zhang
2013 2013 IEEE 20th International Conference on Web Services  
In this paper, we report an empirical study on web API evolution to address this issue.  ...  Therefore, migrating clients of web APIs is a more critical task.  ...  We believe that studying the changes at WSDL level is not enough for guiding the migration of the clients.  ...

Swing to SWT and back: Patterns for API migration by wrapping

Thiago Tonelli, Krzysztof, Ralf
2010 2010 IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance  
Evolving requirements may necessitate API migration-re-engineering an application to replace its dependence on one API with the dependence on another API for the same domain.  ...  One approach to API migration is to replace the original API by a wrapper-based re-implementation that makes reuse of the other API.  ...  In previous work [4] , we studied API migration for two different XML APIs in the Java platform: XOM and JDOM.  ...

A Case Study of Web API Evolution

S.M. Sohan, Craig Anslow, Frank Maurer
2015 2015 IEEE World Congress on Services  
This study will help inform developers of evolving Web APIs to make decision about versioning, documentation and communication methods.  ...  In this paper we conducted a case study of evolving Web APIs to investigate what changes are made between versions and how the changes are documented and communicated to the API users.  ...  This makes the evolution of Web APIs an important subject for a case study.  ...

Web API Fragility: How Robust is Your Mobile Application?

Tiago Espinha, Andy Zaidman, Hans-Gerhard Gross
2015 2015 2nd ACM International Conference on Mobile Software Engineering and Systems  
Web APIs provide a systematic and extensible approach for application-to-application interaction. A large number of mobile applications makes use of web APIs to integrate services into apps.  ...  In particular, we studied how robust 43 high profile mobile applications are when dealing with mutated web API responses.  ...  An important remark is that no metadata is available for any of the web API responses under study.  ...

Mining Library Migration Graphs

Cedric Teyton, Jean-Remy Falleri, Xavier Blanc
2012 2012 19th Working Conference on Reverse Engineering  
In this paper, we propose an approach that identifies sets of similar libraries and that produces what we call library migration graphs that show how existing projects have performed migrations among them  ...  These graphs, constructed from the observation of a large number of software projects, ease the discovery and selection of library replacements. 6  ...  Language migration: Zhong et al. proposed a Mining API Mapping approach that detects relations from two versions of an API written in different languages [11] .  ...

How Do Developers React to RESTful API Evolution? [chapter]

Shaohua Wang, Iman Keivanloo, Ying Zou
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Through an empirical study, we identify 21 change types and 7 of them are new compared with existing studies.  ...  However client code developers often encounter challenges during the migration and API providers have little knowledge of how client code developers react to the API changes.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors would like to thank Pang Pei and Nasir Ali for their valuable comments on this work.  ...
