Mylyn/Related Research Projects
The following research projects are building on or extending Mylar technology.
Antoine, University of British Columbia
Using the Mylar Monitor to run a study to collect Eclipse WTP usage data. By doing so, we hope to make improvements to the organization of commands in the user interface that can be applied to both the Eclipse platform as well as Eclipse-based projects.
Bug Triage, University of British Columbia
Using Mylar's Bugzilla Connector API. Popular open source projects receive lots of bug reports. Since more bugs are reported than can be easily handled, each bug must be triaged to determine if it describes a meaningful new problem or enhancement, and if it does, it must be assigned to an appropriate developer for further handling. We are investigating approaches to help automate two parts of the bug triage process: Bug Report Assignment and Duplicate Detection.
