Boccuzzo, S; Gall, H C (2009). Automated comprehension tasks in software exploration. In: 24th International Conference on Automated Software Engineering, Auckland, New Zealand, 16 November 2009 - 20 November 2009.



Finding issues in software usually requires a serie of comprehension tasks. After every task, an engineer explores the results and decides whether further tasks are required. Software comprehension therefore is a combination of tasks and a supported exploration of the results typically in an adequate visualization. In this paper, we describe how we simplify the combination of existing automated procedures to sequentially solve common software comprehension tasks. Beyond that we improve the understanding of the outcomes with interactive and explorative visualization concepts in a time efficient workflow. We validate the presented concept with basic comprehension tasks in an extended CocoViz tool implementation.
