Predicting Bug severity using Classification on Clustered Bugs Data

Rajalakshmi R, Dhanya PM
2016 International Journal of Advanced Research  
Algorithm Steps:-1) Initially assume random assignment of bug instances to different bug severity categories. 2) Learn an initial probabilistic model by estimating model parameters from this randomly labelled  ...  Bug repository is a kind of repository which handles software bugs. Bug triage, an important step for bug fixing, is to assign a new bug to a relevant developer for further handling.  ...  1312 The approach used here can be extended to other classification and clustering algorithms with other types of data.  ...

Learning Tractable Probabilistic Models for Fault Localization [article]

Aniruddh Nath, Pedro Domingos
2015 arXiv   pre-print
However, most existing probabilistic debugging systems use relatively simple statistical models, and fail to generalize across multiple programs.  ...  In this work, we propose Tractable Fault Localization Models (TFLMs) that can be learned from data, and probabilistically infer the location of the bug.  ...  The model predicts the buggy attribute, using the TARANTULA score and a bias term as features.  ...

Where Should We Fix This Bug? A Two-Phase Recommendation Model

Dongsun Kim, Yida Tao, Sunghun Kim, Andreas Zeller
2013 IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering  
To support developers in debugging and locating bugs, we propose a two-phase prediction model that uses bug reports' contents to suggest the files likely to be fixed.  ...  If so, the model proceeds to predict files to be fixed, based on the content of the bug report.  ...  This observation motivates us to propose a twophase model where we first check whether a bug report is "predictable" and only if it is "predictable" do we proceed to predict a fix location; otherwise,  ...

CODIT: Code Editing with Tree-Based Neural Models [article]

Saikat Chakraborty, Yangruibo Ding, Miltiadis Allamanis, Baishakhi Ray
2020 arXiv   pre-print
CODIT can also learn specific bug fix pattern from bug fixing patches and can fix 25 bugs out of 80 bugs in Defects4J.  ...  The way developers edit day-to-day code tends to be repetitive, often using existing code elements.  ...  Moreover, bug fixing patterns are numerous and highly dependent on the bug context and the bug type, so a single pre-trained model may only have the power to fix certain kinds of bugs and miss the others  ...

Repairing Deep Neural Networks: Fix Patterns and Challenges [article]

Md Johirul Islam, Rangeet Pan, Giang Nguyen, Hridesh Rajan
2020 arXiv   pre-print
bug fixes have the potential to introduce adversarial vulnerabilities; DNN bug fixes frequently introduce new bugs; and DNN bug localization, reuse of trained model, and coping with frequent releases  ...  Which repair patterns should be assigned a higher priority for building automated bug repair tools? This work presents a comprehensive study of bug fix patterns to address these questions.  ...  We do not find any evidence of other bug fix strategies in DNN and that has inspired us to derive a classification scheme using the open coding approach to classify the DNN bug fix patterns.  ...

Source Code Retrieval for Bug Localization Using Latent Dirichlet Allocation

Stacy K. Lukins, Nicholas A. Kraft, Letha H. Etzkorn
2008 2008 15th Working Conference on Reverse Engineering  
In bug localization, a developer uses information about a bug to locate the portion of the source code to modify to correct the bug. Developers expend considerable effort performing this task.  ...  (LDA), a modular and extensible IR model, has significant advantages over both LSI and probabilistic LSI (pLSI).  ...  Latent Dirichlet allocation (LDA) is a probabilistic and fully generative topic model that is used to extract the latent, or hidden, topics present in a collection of documents and to model each document  ...

ShanthiPriya Duraisamy, Laxmi Raja, KalaiSelvi Kandaswamy
2017 International Journal of Computer Applications  
Predictive model is used to determine the order of reduction techniques for a new bug data set, i.e., to choose between FS to IS or IS to FS.  ...  To decrease the manual and time cost, text classification techniques are applied to accomplish automatic bug triage approach aims to precisely predict the developer to solve or fix the new bug report.  ...  A Predictive model is used to determine the order of applying reduction order, i.e., FS to IS or IS to FS. The proposed system performance is verified using Mozilla bug data set.  ...

Where is bug resolution knowledge stored?

Gerardo Canfora, Luigi Cerulo
2006 Proceedings of the 2006 international workshop on Mining software repositories - MSR '06  
This relationship reveals useful to predict code entities impacted by a new bug report.  ...  A common practice is to reference source code changes resolving a bug stored in Bugzilla by inserting the id number of the bug in the CVS commit notes.  ...  The similarity between descriptors is computed by using a probabilistic model that assumes that each term is associated with a topic, and that a document may be about the topic, or not [5] .  ...

Improving bug fix-time prediction model by filtering out outliers

W. AbdelMoez, Mohamed Kholief, Fayrouz M. Elsalmy
2013 2013 The International Conference on Technological Advances in Electrical, Electronics and Computer Engineering (TAEECE)  
Bug fix time prediction models have been used to predict the fix-time of newly reported bugs in order to help out the developer during the triaging process by prioritizing which bugs to fix first.  ...  For example, conspicuous bugs are those taking less than a few minutes to get fixed. Also, there are other bugs that take years to get fixed.  ...  Also, we would like to thank Dr. Emanuel Giger and Dr. Ahmed lamkanfi for all their help and support.  ...

A Comparative Analysis of Open Source Software Reliability

Cobra Rahmani, Azad Azadmanesh, Lotfi Najjar
2010 Journal of Software  
The purpose of this study is to compare the fitting (goodness-of-fit) and prediction capabilities of three reliability models using the failure data of five popular open source software (OSS) products.  ...  Prediction is accomplished by estimating the models parameters based on partial failure history and then applying the estimates to the entire time span for which failure data is collected.  ...  But the failure pattern can be used as a simple way to decide on some models believed to provide a decent prediction. The three models, i.e.  ...
