CODES: mining sourCe cOde Descriptions from developErs diScussions (ICPC 2014 Demo)

An Eclipse plugin to automatically extract method descriptions of Java Systems from discussions in StackOverflow

Tool description

CODES (mining sourCe cOde Descriptions from developErs diScussions) is an Eclipse plugin to automatically extract method descriptions of Java Systems from discussions in StackOverflow. Actually, CODES implements an approach defined in our previous work [2], that automatically extracts method descriptions from developers' communication. CODES considers as good descriptions paragraphs describing methods that obtained the higher score and allows developers to put the chosen description into the code as a Javadoc comment also becoming de facto an API description.
