This online repository provides an Appendix for a paper currently under revision. The repository contains qualitative and quantitative datasets, analysis tools, and pointers to further details about concepts used in the paper.
Detailed within-case write-ups are available in the folder qualitative%20data/ (file doc_cases.pdf), supported by slides.
Relationships in our dependency metamodel are further detailed in Section 188.8.131.52 of .
Static Analysis of Android Bytecode
Technical details of our Android ecosystem mining are available in Appendix B.4 of .
Estimation Details and Additional Statistics
We provide details about our estimations on ecosystem scales and growth rates in Appendix B.1 of .
Additional statistics and diagrams of the quantitative analysis of dependency structures are available in Appendix B.5 of .
We provide both raw datasets and synthesized datasets (CSV files) of all our subjects eCos, Linux kernel, Debian, Eclipse, and Android. These are available under datasets/ , and detailed in Appendix B.3 of .
All our ecosystem mining tools are available.
- For eCos and the Linux kernel, we refer to CDLTools and LVAT
- For Debian, see tools/debian/stats.py .
- For Eclipse, see tools/eclipse/ (for dependency analysis in the main platform), and tools/android/android-analysis/src/main/clojure/eclipse/ (for estimation of scale and growth of the free market).
- For Android, see tools/android/android-analysis/src/main/clojure/android/ (mining of free market, estimation of scale and growth, and static analysis of Dalvik bytecode).
