In this seminar I will present the paper: "Towards bridging the gap between Dalvik bytecode and native code during static analysis of Android applications", by P. Lantz and B. Johansson.

Abstract: We introduce a foundational theory, and a practical technique for assessing and improving test oracles by reducing the incidence of both false positives and false negatives. Our technique combines test case generation to reveal false positives and mutation testing to reveal false negatives. We applied the decision support tool that implements our oracle improvement technique to five real-world subjects. The experimental results show that the fault detection rate of the improved oracles increases, on average, by 52% (92% over the implicit oracle).

In this seminar, I will first introduce the model-view-controller (MVC) design pattern and the way it is used in JavaScript Web applications. Specifically, I will consider the way AngularJS supports the MVC pattern. Then, I will present a classification of possible inconsistencies across the MVC layers and a recent work aimed at detecting such inconsistencies automatically.

This seminar is about the paper: "Learning Natural Coding Conventions" Allamanis M. et al. FSE ’14.

Abstract: In search based test case generation, most of the research works focus on the single-objective formulation of the test case generation problem. However, there are a wide variety of multi- and many-objective optimization strategies that could offer advantages currently not investigated when addressing the problem of test case generation. Furthermore, existing techniques and available tools mainly handle test generation for programs with primitive inputs, such as numeric or string input.

In the next seminar I will rehearse my thesis defence that will take place very soon. Said that, I am planning to deliver a presentation of 45 minutes. Thanks in advance for your time.
