Extending and Evaluating Flow-Insensitive and Context-Insensitive Points-to Analyses for Java

ACM SIGPLAN/SIGSOFT Workshop on Program Analysis for Software Tools and Engineering
June 2001

Donglin Liang and Mary Jean Harrold


This paper presents extensions to Steensgaard's and Andersen's algorithms to handle Java features. Without careful consideration, the handling of these features may affect the correctness, precision, and efficiency of these algorithms. The paper also presents the results of empirical studies. These studies compare the precision and efficiency of these two algorithms and evaluate the effectiveness of handling Java features using alternative approaches. The studies also evaluate the impact of the points-to information provided by these two algorithms on client analyses that use the information.
