Survey of Various Data Reduction Methods for Effective Bug Report Analysis

Authors(3) :-Kapil Sahu, Dr. Umesh Kumar Lilhore, Prof. Nitin Agarwal

In software development process testing process ensures quality management of the product by ensuring bugs free product. During software development and testing process, lots of bugs are logged, fixed and reopened. Bugs management is always expensive and time consuming for software companies. Bug reports are essential software artifacts that describe software bugs, especially in open-source software. Lately, due to the availability of a large number of bug reports, a considerable amount of research has been carried out on bug-report analysis, such as automatically checking duplication of bug reports and localizing bugs based on bug reports. In particular, this paper first presents some background for bug reports and gives a small empirical study on the bug reports to motivate the necessity for work on bug-report analysis. Then this paper summaries the existing work on bug-report analysis and points out some possible problems in working with bug-report analysis
