Identification and annotation of concurrency design patterns in Java source code using static analysis.

Concurrent software is quickly becoming a very important facet in Software Engineering due
to numerous advantages, one of which is increased processing speed. Despite it's importance,
concurrent software is fraught with very difficult to detect bugs, for example deadlocks and
data races. Concurrency design patterns were created to o er successfully tried and tested
means to design and develop concurrent software to, amongst other things, minimize the
occurrence of these hard to detect bugs. In this thesis we discuss our novel static analysis
technique to detect these concurrency design patterns in Java source code and identify them
using commented Java annotations. Using our technique the commented Java annotations
are inserted above Java constructs that are not only part of the Java source code but also
make up the various roles that comprise the concurrency design pattern. The identifying
of the concurrency design patterns in the Java source code can aid in their maintenance
later on, by matching the inserted Java annotations to the various Java constructs they are
annotating. Maintaining the concurrency design patterns within the Java source code in
effect aids in maintaining the Java source code error free. / UOIT
