Training on errors experiment to detect fault-prone software modules by spam filter
The fault-prone module detection in source code is of importance for assurance of software quality. Most of previous fault-prone detection approaches are based on software metrics. Such approaches, however, have difficulties in collecting the metrics and constructing mathematical models based on the metrics. In order to mitigate such difficulties, we propose a novel approach for detecting fault-prone modules using a spam filtering technique, named Fault-Prone Filtering. Because of the increase of needs for spam e-mail detection, the spam filtering technique has been progressed as a convenient and effective technique for text mining. In our approach, fault-prone modules are detected in a way that the source code modules are considered as text files and are applied to the spam filter directly. This paper describes the training on errors procedure to apply fault-prone filtering in practice. Since no pre-training is required, this procedure can be applied to actual development field immed...
