Abstract

In this paper we present BugVis, our tool which allows the visualisation of the lifetime of a code fault. The commit history of thefault from insertion to fix is visualised. Unlike previous similartools, BugVis visualises only the lines of each commit involved inthe fault. The visualisation creates a commit slice throughout thehistory of the fault which enables comprehension of the evolutionof the code involved in the fault.
