    • Analysis and Optimization of TrueType Font Bytecode 

      Liu, Zeming (University of Waterloo, 2018-12-19)
      TrueType is one of the most widely used vectorized font formats. It can be optimally rendered on screens with different resolutions and different font sizes thanks to hints expressed as bytecode programs. Font engines ...
    • Automatic Refactoring for Renamed Clones in Test Code 

      Zhao, Jun (University of Waterloo, 2018-11-21)
      Unit testing plays an essential role in software development and maintenance, especially in Test-Driven Development. Conventional unit tests, which have no input parameters, often exercise similar scenarios with small ...
    • Automating Programming Assignment Marking with AST Analysis 

      Li, Sichuang (University of Waterloo, 2019-01-14)
      This thesis presents a novel approach to automatically mark programming assignments. We hypothesize that correct student solution ASTs will be more similar to reference solution ASTs than incorrect student solutions and ...
    • Enforcing Abstract Immutability 

      Eyolfson, Jonathan (University of Waterloo, 2018-08-01)
      Researchers have recently proposed a number of systems for expressing, verifying, and inferring immutability declarations. These systems are often rigid, and do not support "abstract immutability". An abstractly immutable ...
    • MockDetector: Detecting and tracking mock objects in unit tests 

      Liang, Qian (University of Waterloo, 2021-09-21)
      Unit testing is a widely used tool in modern software development processes. A well-known issue in writing tests is handling dependencies: creating usable objects for dependencies is often complicated. Developers must ...
    • A Quantitative and Qualitative Empirical Evaluation of a Test Refactoring Tool 

      Iman, Aliasghar (University of Waterloo, 2021-10-18)
      Reducing the gap between what practitioners want vs. what researchers assume they want is one of the vital challenges in software projects. When it comes to software tools, many people develop tools, but only some tools ...
    • Studying and Leveraging API Usage Patterns 

      Venkatanarayanan, Sruthi (University of Waterloo, 2022-09-29)
      Software projects make use of libraries extensively. Libraries have intended API surfaces—sets of exposed library interfaces that library developers expect clients to use. However, in practice, clients only use small ...
    • WasmWalker: Path-based Code Representations for Improved WebAssembly Program Analysis 

      Robati Shirzad, Mohammad (University of Waterloo, 2023-05-05)
      WebAssembly, or Wasm, is a low-level binary language that enables execution of near-native-performance code in web browsers. Wasm has proven to be useful in applications including gaming, audio and video processing, and ...
