Today I am demoing Fraglight: Shedding Light on Broken Pointcuts in Evolving Aspect-Oriented Software at the Razorfish Global Tech Summit 2015. If you’re in attendance, please come down to the lab for a demo!
8. Fraglight: Raffi Khatchadourian, Assistant Professor, City College of Technology, CUNY. It’s not a party if you don’t invite the computer scientists. Pointcut fragility is a problem in aspect-oriented programming; changes to the base code can lead to join points incorrectly falling in or out of the scope of pointcuts. Deciding which pointcuts have broken due to changes made to the base code can be a daunting task, especially in complex systems.“Fraglight helps developers change Aspect-Oriented programs by analyzing their code and correspondingly predicting which pointcuts, or queries over the program execution, break as a result of their changes, bringing these pointcuts to the developer’s attention,” says Khatchadourian, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Systems Technology at New York City College of Technology, part of CUNY, who developed the project with a team of collaborators.
The camera-ready version of our SPLASH 2015 tool demonstration on Fraglight is now available.
Our new tool demonstration, “Fraglight: Shedding Light on Broken Pointcuts in Evolving Aspect-Oriented Software,” has been accepted at the ACM SIGPLAN conference on Systems, Programming, Languages and Applications: Software for Humanity (SPLASH 2015)!
I am happy to announce that I have been invited to serve as a program committee member for the tool demonstration and poster session tracks of the 15th International Conference on Modularity (Modularity’16) in Malaga, Spain next year.
