Execution patterns are a new metaphor for visualizing
execution traces of object-oriented programs.
We present an execution pattern view that lets a
programmer visualize and explore a program's
execution at varied levels of abstraction. The
view employs visual, navigational, and analytical
techniques that accommodate lengthy, real-world
traces. By classifying repetitive behavior automatically
into high-order execution patterns, we drastically
reduce the information a programmer must
assimilate, with little loss of insight.
