A Bayesian Network Based Approach for Change Coupling Prediction


Zhou, Y; Wuersch, M; Giger, E; Gall, H C; Lue, J (2008). A Bayesian Network Based Approach for Change Coupling Prediction. In: Working Conference on Reverse Engineering, Antwerp, Belgium, 15 October 2008 - 18 October 2008, 27-36.

Abstract

Source code coupling and change history are two important data
sources for change coupling analysis. The popularity of public open
source projects in recent years makes both sources available. Based
on our previous research, in this paper, we inspect different
dimensions of software changes including change significance or source code
dependency levels, extract a set of features from the two
sources and propose a bayesian network-based approach for
change coupling prediction. By combining the features from the co-changed entities
and their dependency relation, the approach can model the underlying
uncertainty. The empirical case study on two medium-sized
open source projects demonstrates the feasibility and effectiveness
of our approach compared to previous work.

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.
