Background. Solving the class-imbalance problem of within-project software defect prediction (SDP) is an important research topic. Although some class-imbalance learning methods have been presented, there exists room for improvement. For cross-project SDP, we found that the class-imbalanced source usually leads to misclassification of defective instances. However, only one work has paid attention to this cross-project class-imbalance problem. Objective. We aim to provide effective solutions for… CONTINUE READING
