Data-Mining Techniques for Call-Graph-Based Software-Defect Localisation
Dissertation, Department of Informatics, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), 2011
Defect localisation is an important problem in software engineering. This dissertation investigates call-graph-mining-based software defect localisation, which supports software developers by providing hints where defects might be located. It extends the state-of-the-art by proposing new graph representations and mining techniques for weighted graphs. This leads to a broader range of detectable defects, to an increased localisation precision and to enhanced scalability.
