Collection Disjointness Analysis in Java
This thesis presents a collection disjointness analysis to find disjointness relations between collections in Java. We define the three types of disjointness relations between collections: must-shared, may-shared and not-may-shared. The collection- disjointness analysis is implemented following the way of a forward data-flow analysis using Soot Java bytecode analysis framework. For method calls, which are usually difficult to analyze in static analysis, our analysis provide a way of generating and reading annotations of a method to best approximate the behavior of the calling methods. Finally, this thesis presents the experimental results of the collection-disjointness analysis on several tests.
