  • Empirical studies in software testing research may not be comparable, reproducible, or characteristic of practice. [...] Key Method This framework also provides a high-level interface to common tasks in software testing research, making it easy to con- duct and reproduce empirical studies. Defects4J is publicly available at http://defects4j.org.Expand Abstract
