Understanding a program and its evolution is not satisfied only by looking at a current snapshot of its source code. Thus, a developer often examines a sequence of its snapshots stored in repositories of versioning systems, and identifies differences between two successive snapshots. Unfortunately, such differences do not represent individual changes of the(More)
While refactoring makes frameworks more reusable, it is complex to do by hand. This paper presents a mechanism that automatically refactors methods in object-oriented frameworks by using weighted dependence graphs, whose edges are weighted based on the modification histories of the methods. To find the appropriate boundary between frozen spots and hot spots(More)
Recent IDEs have become more extensible tool platforms but do not concern themselves with how other tools running on them collaborate with each other. They compel developers to use proprietary representations or the classical abstract syntax tree (AST) to build source code tools. Although these representations contain sufficient information, they are(More)
Refactoring is an essential and useful practice in developing and maintaining object-oriented software since it improves the design of existing code without changing its external behavior. Therefore, several refactoring tools tend to be integrated into contemporary IDEs. However, these tools represent source code as an abstract syntax tree (AST) and thus(More)
