StackOversight is a novel approach to address the ever-growing concern of copied code within applications. Instead of the traditional route of searching for intra-application code-clones, StackOversight finds code that is copied from online sources, like StackOverflow. Code that is found online is oftentimes unverified and riddled with code-smells and bugs. Utilizing online code too much can lower the quality of code overall and create a nightmare for quality assurance. This session will cover the basics of code-clones and the ways of detecting them so no background knowledge is needed by attendees. StackOversight is a working open-source prototype with initial tests proving successful, as over 500 high-severity clones were found in the Spring Framework enterprise application. StackOversight was developed during a summer internship program as a combined effort of NSF IRES researchers from Baylor University and interns from Red Hat in Brno.
