Tables 9 and 10 show the AC1 statistic (Gwet 2001) measured with a 95% confidence interval (CI). Section 4 compares the code smell detection tools by analyzing their accuracy and agreement. More simply, a code smell is a piece of code that we perceive as not right, but don’t fix right away. In: Proceedings of the 14th conference on object-oriented programming, systems, languages, and applications. 2008). This lack of precise definitions implies on tools that implement different detection techniques for the same code smell. In future work, we would like to expand our analysis to include other real-life systems from different domains and compare other code smell detection tools. inFusion has the worst accuracy, with an average of 0% for recall and undefined precision, since it did not detect any instance of God Class in any version of the system. Thanis Paiva. 2005) (Moha et al. To calculate recall and precision, we considered that true positives are instances (classes or methods) present in the code smell reference list that are also reported by the tool being assessed. Therefore, we believe that the similarity in the methods functionality may have led to confusion as to the correct class that each method should have been placed. IEEE press, pp 403–414, Vale G, Albuquerque D, Figueiredo E, Garcia A (2015) Defining metric thresholds for software product lines: a comparative study. About transcription errors, the tools analyzed generate outputs in different formats. Analyzing the source code, we found that changes were minor, such as renaming variables, reordering statements and adding or removing types of exceptions caught or thrown by the methods. The overall agreement or percentage agreement (Hartmann 1977) between two or more tools is the proportion of instances (classes or methods) that were classified in the same category by both tools, for the overall agreement between pairs, or by all tools, in the case of overall agreement between multiple tools. Therefore, it is difficult to find open source systems with validated lists of code smells to serve as a basis for evaluating the techniques and tools. Detection of code smells is challenging for developers and their informal definition leads to the implementation of multiple detection techniques and tools. We then tracked their states throughout the versions of both target systems. The types of problems that can be indicated by a code smell are not usually bugs that will cause an entire system crash – and d evelopers are well trained to uncover logic errors that cause bugs and system failure. For instance, the method AddressRepositoryRDB.insert is only changed in version 10, where a few statements are placed in a different order from the previous versions. In this paper, we evaluate four code smell detection tools, namely inFusion, JDeodorant, PMD, and JSpIRIT, selected from the tools available for download that are free or have a trial version (Fernandes et al. We also implement a smell detection tool named Pysmell and use it to identify code smells in five real world Python systems. It can indicate that the method is badly located and should be transferred to another class (Fowler 1999). Higher precision reduces greatly the validation effort of the programmer, but it can also increase the risk of missing relevant code smells. Solution Sprawl, Contrived Complexity, and even Oddball Solutions can be easily added with the best intentions during refactoring especially if the vision of the entire project is limited. The tool estimates the Technical Debt progress since the baseline. The first thing you should check in a method is its name. In: Proceedings of the 22nd international conference on software maintenance. In fact, some preliminary studies (Mäntylä 2005) (Moha et al. They refer to any symptom in the source code of a program that possibly indicates a deeper problem. For instance, the PhotoController class was created in version 2 without any smell, but it became God Class in version 4 due to the addition of several new functionalities, such as displaying an image on screen and providing the image information. Despite the highest average recall, JDeodorant reports many false positives, increasing the effort to validate the results by programmers. The usage of different techniques explains the lower agreement between the other tools with JDeodorant. Therefore, we can consider that the agreement remained high even when comparing tools with different detection techniques. (2016) proposed that code smells are related, appearing together in the source code to compose different design problems. Other studies proposed different approaches to detect code smells in software. The most relevant is making sure that every of piece code clearly communicates its intent. JDeodorant detects God Method using slicing techniques (Fontana et al. Code smells are much more subtle than logic errors and indicate problems that are more likely to impact overall performance quality than cause a crash. For MobileMedia, the same happens for God Method and Feature Envy. For God Method, the number of instances varies across versions, with intervals in which the total of smells increases or decreases. This class is an implementation of the Façade design pattern (Gamma et al. What we haven’t really done is address some of the larger problems, particularly around the domain model being difficult to work with. However, inFusion is the most conservative tool, with a total of 28 code smell instances for God Class, God Method, and Feature Envy. Section 3.3 defines the research questions we aim to answer. The method is noticeably different from all other methods in the same class. The only work the method does is delegating work. The rest of this paper is organized as follows. The number of God Classes and God Methods remains constant, with the addition of only one instance of God Class in version 9. CS provided guidance for the study design, reviewed the manuscript and helped fine-tune the final draft. All authors read and approved the final manuscript. In: Proceedings of the 38th international conference on software engineering. Such observation is compatible with the code smell reference list and with the conclusions of Fontana et al. Code as Data to detect code smells Static analysis is the idea of analyzing source code for various properties and reporting on those properties, but it’s also, more generally, the idea of treating code … Another study by Fontana et al., (2015) applied 16 different machine-learning algorithms in 74 software systems to detect four code smells in an attempt to avoid some common problems of code smell detectors. Code smells have fancy names and apply to different coding scenarios. Fortunately, there are many software analysis tools available for detecting code smells (Fernandes et al. This result was expected, since the evolution of the system includes new functionalities and God Classes tends to centralize them. (2015). In addition to the tsDetect detection mechanism, we incor- Aside from obvious hygiene and social considerations, in much the same way a strong and unpleasant body smell may be the surface indicator of a deeper medical problem, a strong and unpleasant code smell may be the symptom of relevant weaknesses in the code design. Nonetheless, all tools reported false positives; hence, they all present a 0% precision. (XLS 148, Journal of Software Engineering Research and Development,, On the other hand, also in version 4, the new AlbumController class has already been created as God Class. However, to reduce this risk we selected systems from different domains, Mobile (MobileMedia) and Web (Health Watcher), which were developed to incorporate nowadays technologies, such as GUIs, persistence, distribution, concurrency, and recurrent maintenance scenarios of real software systems. Tools with high recall can detect the majority of the smells of the systems when compared to tools with lower recall. Details are discussed in the following. Another observation is that the number of smells does not necessarily grow with the size of the system, even though there was an increase of 2057 lines of code in MobileMedia and of 2706 lines of code in Health Watcher. See what professional developers are saying about n depend. If a tool provides the detection of the code smells, it must provides also the possibility to customize it. Steve et al. Since there are no false negatives or true positives, recall is undefined. Throughout the versions, the methods are frequently modified. J Appl Behav Anal 10:103–116. When we write code, knowingly or unknowingly we introduce smells. We use the following key in Table 8: inFusion (inf), JDeodorant (jde), PMD (pmd) and JSpIRIT (jsp). doi:10.5381/jot.2012.11.2.a5, Fontana FA, Mäntylä M, Zanoni M, Marino A (2015) Comparing and experimenting machine learning techniques for code smell detection. In the first case, the methods are introduced in the system already with much functionality. Typically, the ideal method: 1. For MobileMedia, for instance, the average recall varies from 0 to 58% and the average precision from 0 to 100%, while for Health Watcher the variations are 0 to 100% and 0 to 85%, respectively. ACM, pp 261–270, Fontana FA, Braione P, Zanoni M (2012) Automatic detection of bad smells in code: An experimental assessment. I have Resharper Ultimate but I don’t know how to detect duplicated code. Different thresholds influence the results, but that analysis is beyond our scope. On the other hand, recall of JDeodorant increased for God Class and God Method, from 58 and 50% in MobileMedia to 70 and 82% in Health Watcher. This involves the correct analysis of the results of the experiment, measurement reliability and reliability of the implementation of the treatments. A great month! Different tools implement different detection techniques and sometimes the same technique can be implemented with variations specific to a particular tool, such as different threshold values. JetBrains Webinars? . Finally, even if the same metrics are used, the threshold values might be different because they are defined considering different factors, such as system domain and its size, organizational practices, and the experience of software engineers that define them. This paper extends previous ones by analyzing an additional tool, named JSpIRIT, in a different system, named Health Watcher. JDeodorant is again the more aggressive in its detection strategy by reporting 787 instances. Furthermore, we intend to investigate the influence of different domains in the analysis of detection tools. 2015), we evaluated three code smell detection tools, namely inFusion, JDeodorant, and PMD and one target system, MobileMedia. PMD and JSpIRIT have the same average recall of 17%. Regarding the agreement, we found that the overall agreement between tools varies from 83 to 98% among all tools and from 67 to 100% between pairs of tools. Usually these smells do not crop up right away, rather they accumulate over time as the program evolves (and especially when nobody makes an effort to eradicate them). We also had other reasons for choosing the two systems: (i) we have access to their source code, allowing us to manually retrieve code smells, (ii) their code is readable, facilitating for instance, the task of identifying the functionalities implemented by classes and methods, (iii) these systems were previously used in other maintainability-related studies (Figueiredo et al. The closer we can move the expressiveness of the programming language to the business, the more readable and granular our code becomes. Despite having the lowest recall for God Method, when compared to JDeodorant (50%) and JSpIRIT (36%), inFusion and PMD have an average precision of 100%. Even though code smell detection and removal has been well-researched over the last decade, it remains open to debate whether or not code smells should be considered meaningful conceptualizations of code quality … 2.1 Code smell definitions statistic (Gwet 2001), which adjusts the overall agreement probability for chance agreement, considering all tools and pairs of tools. In addition, from versions 4 to 7, one God Class is introduced per version and two are added in version 8. class code smells to do work with. (XLS 222 kb). On the evaluation of code smells and detection tools. We can observe that from version 1 to version 10 there was an increase of 2706 lines of code, with the addition of 41 classes and 270 methods. Interestingly, inFusion and JSpIRIT use the same detection strategy, while PMD uses a single metric LOC to detect God Method. Addison-Wesley, Boston, Soares S, Borba P, Laureano E (2006) Distribution and persistence as aspects. Oizumi et al. But it indicates a violation of design principles that might lead to problems further down the road. That is, JDeodorant detects more than nine times the amount of smells of the most conservative tools, namely inFusion and PMD. In this article, we present a fexible tool to prioritize technical debt in the form of code smells. Regarding our secondary study on the evolution of code smells, we found that the majority of code smells in both systems originate with the class or method creation. An overview of the tables shows that the minimum average recall is 0% and the maximum is 100%, while the minimum average precision is 0% and the maximum 85%. For the next 10 weeks, we’ll have weekly posts by Dino Esposito (@despos) around a common theme: code smells and code structure. Softw Pract Exp 36(7):711–759. Between pairs of tools, the overall agreement varies from 67 to 100%. Section 4.2 analyzes the tools accuracy in detecting code smells from the reference list. We also analyzed the agreement of the tools, calculating the overall agreement and the chance-corrected agreement using the AC1 statistic for all the tools and for pairs of tools. Is no longer than 30 lines and doesn’t take more than 5 parameters 3. We also intend to investigate more the evolution of other code smells in a system and how their evolution is related to maintenance activities. 2012), while inFusion, JSpIRIT and PMD use Marinescu’s detection strategy (Lanza and Marinescu 2006). External Validity concerns the ability to generalize the results to other environments (Wohlin et al. As a commercial product, inFusion is no longer available for download at this moment. The AC1 statistic is “Very Good” for all smells and versions in both systems. The main factors that could negatively affect the internal validity of the experiment are the size of the subject programs, possible errors in the transcription of the result of tool analysis, and imprecision in the code smell reference lists. © 2020 BioMed Central Ltd unless otherwise stated. Therefore, tools with higher precision and, therefore, that report less false positives are more desirable. Goal: The goal of this paper is to help practitioners avoid … Without refactoring, code smells may ultimately increase technical debt. These tools were selected because they analyze Java programs, they can be installed and setup from the provided downloaded files, they detect the analyzed smells in both target systems and their output is a list of occurrences of code smells, allowing calculating recall, precision, and agreement. Section 2.2 presents the tools evaluated in this paper. The complete calculation and explanation of e(γ) can be found in the book of Gwet (2001). In: Proceedings of the 37th international conference on software engineering. Table 2 shows for each version of MobileMedia the number of classes, methods, and lines of code. This result confirms the findings of Tufano et al. Tables 5 and 6 show the average of recall and precision considering all versions for each tool and code smell analyzed in MobileMedia and Health Watcher. (2015) focused in identifying when and why smells are introduced in the system in a large empirical study of 200 open source projects. This is the crucial point. We can observe that from versions 1 to 9 there was an increase of 2057 lines of code, 31 classes, and 166 methods. To our knowledge, Fontana et al. This code still demonstrates several smells, and can benefit from further refactoring, but it’s a definite improvement on the original. Chatzigeorgiou and Manakos (2010) and Tufano et al. By analyzing the results, we concluded that the high agreement was due to the agreement on non-smelly entities. But what about the detection of the bug-prone situations? However, the agreement remained high even between tools with distinct techniques, indicating that the results obtained from different techniques are distinct, but still similar enough to yield high agreement values. 2016): Large Class and Long Method. ACM, pp 5–14, Oizumi W, Garcia A, Sousa LS, Cafeo B, Zhao Y (2016) Code anomalies flock together: exploring code anomaly agglomerations for locating design problems. On the other hand, higher precisions reduce the validation effort by reporting less false positives. Finally, the column Detection Techniques contain a general description of the techniques used by each tool, with software metrics being the most common. The column Refactoring indicates whether the tool provides the feature of refactoring the code smell detected, which is available only in JDeodorant. Since we compiled the code smell reference list to measure the tools accuracy, we conducted a secondary study to analyze the evolution of code smells in nine versions of MobileMedia and in ten versions of Health Watcher. However, detection in large software systems is a time and resource-consuming, error-prone activity (Travassos et al. For instance, the PhotoController class is added in the second version of the system and it only became smelly in version 4, because of the incorporation of new features such as showing saved images, and updating the image information. JDeodorant employs a variety of novel methods and techniques in order to identify code smells and suggest the appropriate refactorings that resolve them. That is, the class is already created as a class that centralizes functionalities instead of a class to which functionalities are gradually included with each release of the system. 2012). JDeodorant reports the highest number of God Classes, reporting 98 instances, while PMD and JSpIRIT report lower numbers of classes, 33 and 20. 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8. Both experts analyzed each class and method individually using Fowler’s description of code smells (Fowler 1999). That is, “a class that knows or does too much” (Riel 1996). The column Languages contains the programming languages of the source code that can be analyzed by the tools, with Java being the common language among them. On the other hand, it brings a new challenge on how to assess and compare tools and to select the most efficient tool in specific development contexts. dotCover offers by JetBrains is a .NET unit test runner and code coverage tool. Nearly identical code exists in more than one class or method or library or system. That is, it detects about 16 times the amount of smells of the most conservative tools, inFusion and PMD. Typically, the ideal method: Here’s a list of code smells to watch out for in methods, in order of priority. 2. 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8, each smelly class or method is represented by a row and each system version by a column. Paiva, T., Damasceno, A., Figueiredo, E. et al. Most of the smell we perceive is about the logical distance between the abstraction level of the programming language and the language of the business. There are two possible states: white and black. The ImageAccessor.updateImageInfo and MediaController.showImage methods were already created with the smell, and only MediaAccessor.updateMediaInfo became smelly after creation. inFusion has once again the worst average of recall (0%), since it did not detect any instances of God Method. Each rectangle represents the state of the class or method in the system version given by the column. The code smell reference list is a document containing the code smells identified in the source code of a software system. Keep an eye on our blog! Code smell detection tools can help developers to maintain software quality by employing different techniques for detecting code smells, such as object-oriented metrics (Lanza and Marinescu 2006) and program slicing (Tsantalis et al. Section 2.1 briefly discusses code smells. 2016). 2008). Let’s start at the beginning and discuss the various types of code smells. Infusion works with Java and C/C++ codebase where Designite targets C# code. Investigating the results, we found that the high agreement is on true negatives, i.e., non-smelly entities. Therefore, the overall agreement is the number of instances classified in the same category (smelly and non-smelly) by the pair or set of tools, divided by the total number of instances in the target system. However, the acceptable values for recall and precision have to be determined by the programmer that intends to use code smell detection tools. We calculated the overall agreement and the AC Detection of code smells is challenging for developers and their informal definition leads to the implementation of multiple detection techniques and tools. Footnote 3 is an open source tool for Java and an Eclipse plugin that detects many problems in Java code, including two of the code smells of our interest: God Class and God Method. 2010) (Murphy-Hill and Black 2010) tried to address some of these problems only for small systems and few code smells. The low standard deviation supports the fact that the agreement between tools remains high across versions of both systems. CCS CONCEPTS • Software and its engineering → Maintaining soft-ware; Software maintenance tools; KEYWORDS Code smells, Antipatterns, Software quality, Code Quality, Only the final version has one additional smell instance. In: Proceedings of the 12th European conference on software maintenance and reengineering. In our work, we also analyze the evolution of code smells, but at a higher level and neither focused on maintenance activities and refactoring, like Chatzigeorgiou and Manakos (2010), nor in the reasons why the smells were introduced, like Tufano et al. Specifically, it detects a comprehensive set of architecture, design, and implementation smells and provides mechanisms such as detailed metrics analysis, Dependency Structure Matrix, trend analysis, and smell distribution maps. God Class defines a class that centralizes the functionality of the system. This paper extends our previous work by including the tool JSpIRIT and the Health Watcher system to increase the confidence of our results and to favor generalization of our findings. Figure 7 shows the evolution of the only two God Classes in Health Watcher: ComplaintRepositoryRDB and HealthWatcherFacade. Several secondary studies have been published on code smells, discussing their implications on software quality, their impact on maintenance and evolution, and existing tools for their detection. You have to change many unrelated methods when making one change to a class or library. Bad smells in code refer to code quality issues that may indicate deeper problems now or in the future. PubMed Google Scholar. We are going to look at some of them here. Without pruning, branches get longer and longer and mostly produce fruit at the tips. As emphatic as it may sound, comments should never state the obvious. Comments are insightful when they document the wherefores of a technical decision, points left deliberately open, doubts, or future developments. The AC1 statistic is calculated as (p − e(γ))/(1 − e(γ)), where p is the overall percentage agreement and e(γ) is the chance agreement probability (Gwet 2001). Pardon the French: Also, learn about ways to implement security and limitations. However, in version 4, the method was broken into other non-smelly methods, contributing to the decrease of smells. Our study involved nine object-oriented versions (1 to 9) of MobileMedia, ranging from 1 to over 3 KLOC. In humans, some of those glands contribute the body odor – good or bad. We aim to assess how much the tools agree when classifying a class or method as a code smell. In MobileMedia, the pair inFusion-PMD has the highest average agreement (99.66%), followed by the pairs inFusion-JSpIRIT (99.25%) and PMD-JSpIRIT (99.24%). Abstract: Code smells are a well-known metaphor to describe symptoms of code decay or other issues with code quality which can lead to a variety of maintenance problems. In Fig. Worse yet, under pressure, especially seasoned developers with the highest workloads, are more subject to shortcuts that may result in code smells.
