   We develop tools for analyzing and understanding programs, especially in the context of automated debugging. The ultimate aim is to realize debugging at the touch of a button - you press the button, our delta debugging tools provide the failure cause.

We want to make our tools available to the world and have decided to integrate them within the open source Eclipse programming environment. IBM wants us to do so, too, and has granted us an Eclipse innovation award - with an extensive funding for personnel, material and travel expenses.

We are now looking for two excellent master or diploma students who are willing to conduct one of the following Master theses / Diplomarbeiten:
Thesis 1: Isolating failure-inducing code changes in Eclipse.
After some changes, your program no longer works. Which change is responsible for the failure?
Thesis 2: Isolating failure-inducing input in Eclipse.
Your Web browser fails on some HTML input. What part of the input is responsible for the failure?

Within your thesis work, you

  • build tools that satisfy the highest standards (your tools will be used by thousands of programmers around the globe)
  • work in a team of three developers
  • can rely on earlier prototype work (no research involved)
  • use the Eclipse environment to access source, test, and versioning data
  • use the Eclipse environment to program in Java
  • present your work in October, 2003 at the IBM Eclipse workshop in the USA (all travel expenses paid by IBM and the chair)
Your thesis work starts at March 1, 2003 and ends on September 1, 2003. Competitive funding for polishing and presenting your work is available. Extensive experience in Java or OO programming is a must, as is good English. Please send us your detailed resume, including earlier project experience before February 15, 2003. For any questions, please contact Prof. Andreas Zeller <zeller@cs.uni-saarland.de>.
