Threats to the validity and value of empirical assessments of the accuracy of coverage-based fault locators

Abstract

Resuming past work on coverage-based fault localization, we find that empirical assessments of its accuracy are subject to so many imponderables that they are of limited value. To improve on this situation, we have compiled a comprehensive list of threats to be considered when attempting such assessments in the future. In addition, we propose the… (More)
