Dynamic Feature Monitoring and Blocking: Phase 1
MetadataShow full item record
A feature call-site is a code location where a method implementing the feature is called. This report describes a tool-set, named the Call-Site Scenario Detector (CSSD), for detecting call-site activation scenarios. A call-site activation scenario is a computation path that leads to a designated method call-site, along with run-time data of all active objects long that path. This data includes names, types, and values of object fields and of method parameters. Detecting call-site activation scenarios is a special case of the notoriously difficult path coverage testing problem. The underline technologies used by CSSD are genetic-programming based automatic unit-test generation and dynamic byte-code instrumentation. Next year’s Phase 2 of this research effort will be result in a dynamic call-site blocking tool. It will enable an end-user or system administrator to conditionally block certain call-sites. The results of this year’s Phase 1 research are the basis for Phase 2 in that it provides actual call-site activation scenarios, thereby providing the end user with information to selectively and dynamically block a designated call-site under certain scenarios and enable the call-site under other scenarios.
