Project Abstract

Our main research focus is the detection of design problems (flaws), by using metrics-based techniques. In this context we are interested to explore the potential correlations that might exist between the presence of various types of design flaws and the number (and type) of bugs that are detected in such a system. Access to the various bug/issue tracking systems of various projects (located in SourceForge) is essential to mapping the various bug reports to program entities (packages, classes, methods) and this performing the aforementioned statistical analysis.
