First, we present EventBreak, a performance-guided test generation technique to identify and analyze event handlers whose execution time gradually increases while using the application, making the application unresponsive. The key idea is to systematically search for pairs of events where triggering one event increases the execution time of the other event. EventBreak discovers scalability and responsiveness problems in three real-world web applications.
This work is presented at OOPSLA'14 and ICSE'15.
