Querying versioned software repositories


Christopeit, Dietrich; Böhlen, Michael H; Kanne, Carl-Christian; Mazeika, Arturas (2011). Querying versioned software repositories. In: 15th international conference on Advances in databases and information systems , Vienna, Austria, 20 September 2011 - 23 September 2011, 42-55.

Abstract

Large parts of today’s data is stored in text documents that undergo a series of changes during their lifetime. For instance during the development of a software product the source code changes frequently. Currently, managing such data relies on version control systems (VCSs). Extracting information from large documents and their different versions is a manual and tedious process. We present Qvestor, a system that allows to declaratively query documents. It leverages information about the structure of a document that is available as a context-free grammar and allows to declaratively query document versions through a grammar annotated with relational algebra expressions. We define and illustrate the annotation of grammars with relational algebra expressions and show how to translate the annotations to easy to use SQL views.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
