High-quality and large-scale repositories of real bugs and their concise patches collected from real-world applications are critical for research in the software engineering community. On one side, such real bugs may inspire novel approaches in finding, locating, and repairing software bugs. On the other side, such real bugs are indispensable for rigorous and meaningful evaluation of approaches in software testing, fault localization, and program repair. To this end, a number of such repositories, e.g., Defects4J, have been proposed. However, such repositories are rather small because their construction involves expensive human intervention. Although bug-fixing code commits as well as associated test cases could be retrieved from version control systems automatically, existing approaches could not yet automatically extract bug-fixing changes (i.e., patches) from code commits because bug-fixing commits often involve bug-irrelevant changes, e.g., refactorings. In this paper, we propose an automatic approach, called BugBuilder, to extracting real bugs and their concise patches from bug-fixing commits. It excludes refactorings by detecting refactorings involved in bug-fixing commits and reapplying detected refactorings on the faulty version. It generates potential patches by computing the changes between the revised faulty version and the fixed version and validates potential patches by test cases associated with the applications. Evaluation results on 809 real bug-fixing commits in Defects4J suggest that BugBuilder successfully generated complete and concise patches for forty percent of the bug-fixing commits, and its precision (99%) was even higher than human experts.
