Abstract

Test smells can be found in test code using a variety of tools. In this paper, we present our integration of a test smell detection tool into Better Code Hub (BCH), an online environment for monitoring code quality and identifying problems in it. We extended BCH with test smell detection and observe how developers react to various instances of test smells. By integrating this detection into BCH, we gain access to a wide range of developers working on both open-source and commercial projects using their own code. We study whether developers consider these test smells important and what they do with them in future code changes. From our preliminary results, we found out a high test smell detection accuracy for most test smells; however, developers are only willing to remove a small portion of them.
