Abstract

Automatic software repair is the process of automatically fixing bugs. The Nopol repair system repairs Java code using code synthesis. We have designed a new code synthesis engine for Nopol based on dynamic exploration, it is called DynaMoth. The main design goal is to be able to generate patches with method calls. We evaluate DynaMoth over 224 of the Defects4J dataset. The evaluation shows that Nopol with DynaMoth is capable of synthesizing patches and enables Nopol to repair new bugs of the dataset.
