Software is ubiquitous in the people daily life. It brings the user great convenience and a big headache about software reliability as well: Software is never bug-free, and software bugs keep incurring monetary loss or even catastrophes. In the pursuit of better reliability, software engineering researchers found that huge amount of data in various forms can be collected from software systems, and these data, when properly analyzed, can help improve software reliability. Unfortunately, the huge volume of complex data renders simple analysis techniques incompetent; consequently, Studies have been resorting to data mining for more effective analysis.
