Continuous integration is an agile software development practice. Instead of integrating features right before a release, they are constantly being integrated in an automated build process. This shortens the release cycle, improves software quality, and reduces time to market. However, the whole process will come to a halt when a commit breaks the build, which can happen for several reasons, e.g., compilation errors or test failures, and fixing the build suddenly becomes a top priority. Developers not only have to find the cause of the build break and fix it, but they have to be quick in all of it to avoid a delay for others. Unfortunately, these steps require deep knowledge and are often time consuming. To support developers in fixing a build break, we propose BART, a tool that summarizes the reasons of the build failure and suggests possible solutions found on the Internet. We will show in a case study with eight participants that developers find BART useful to understand build breaks and that using BART substantially reduces the time to fix a build break, on average by 41%.
