I am a Master student in software engineering and I work on a project which subject is to establish a mini paper on a chosen hypothesis related to XWiki.
Subject link that will explain better than me: https://docs.google.com/document/d/14y9zZPUz7QnHbPHQfPJwUBMVgNZYv14SMkvEqrWpSTo/edit?usp=sharing
Our group’s hypothesis is this simple:
“Are the hot spots (metrics to be defined) in the mapping of a project the most problematic?”
Our methodology to validate this hypothesis is the following:
- Establish a code map
- Try to download / install XWiki and use it as a typical user with pre-determined scenarios.
- Use a tracing tool like Selenium
- Map Github / Jira issues with code trace and (un) validate.
The project being a large-scale one, would it be possible to obtain more information concerning which part of the code is the hottest, assuming that the “hot” metric means “accessed often” by typical user ?
Thank you a lot,
If I am unclear, please, don’t hesitate to tell me.
