PROPHET : Tool Infrastructure To Support Program Comprehension Experiments

  title={PROPHET : Tool Infrastructure To Support Program Comprehension Experiments},
  author={Janet Feigenspan and Norbert Siegmund and Andreas Hasselberg},
Program comprehension is an important human factor in software engineering. To evaluate and improve it, controlled experiments are usually necessary, which, however, require a lot of effort. To support researchers in planning and conducting program-comprehension experiments, we developed the extensible tool PROPHET. It can fulfill the most common requirements of program-comprehension experiments published in the last five years. Furthermore, PROPHET provides an extensible architecture, so that… CONTINUE READING
