Deprecation in Java is a language feature that allows API producers to mark program elements as obsolete. However, previous work has identified that this mechanism is co-opted to indicate another concept entirely: a misuse of deprecation. This leaves room for improvement because deprecation warning mechanisms do not fully describe the true...

The practice of software engineering involves the combination of existing software components with new functionality to create new software. This is where an Application Programming Interface (API) comes in, an API is a definition of a set of functionality that can be reused by a developer to incorporate certain functionality in their codebase....

Application Programming Interfaces (API) provide reusable functionality to aid developers in the development process. The features provided by these APIs might change over time as the API evolves. To allow API consumers to peacefully transition from older obsolete features to new features, API producers make use of the deprecation mechanism...

Deprecation is a language feature that allows API producers to mark a feature as obsolete. We aim to gain a deep understanding of the needs of API producers and consumers alike regarding deprecation. To that end, we investigate why API producers deprecate features, whether they remove deprecated features, how they expect consumers to react, and...

Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are a tremendous resource—that is, when they are stable. Several studies have shown that this is unfortunately not the case. Of those, a large-scale study of API changes in the Pharo Smalltalk<br/>ecosystem documented several findings about API deprecations and their impact on API clients. We conduct a...

An Application Programming Interface (API) provides a specific set of functionalities to a developer, with the aim of enabling reuse. APIs have been investigated from different angles such as popularity usage and evolution, to get a better understanding of their various characteristics. For such studies software repositories are mined for API...
