BugVis: Commit Slicing for Defect Visualisation
In this paper we present BugVis, our tool which allows the visualisation of the lifetime of a code fault. The commit history of the fault from insertion to fix is visualised. Unlike previous similar tools, BugVis visualises only the lines of each commit involved in the fault. The visualisation creates a commit slice throughout the history of the fault which enables comprehension of the evolution of the code involved in the fault.
