Research in automatic traceability link recovery typically involves running a large number experiments on various datasets in order to compare the performance of different approaches in different configurations. Each experiment comprises a number of steps, including data preparation, artifact preprocessing, link generation, and filtering. Additionally, evaluation metrics need to be computed on the obtained results. We present OpenTrace, the first extensible open source workbench that facilitates reproducible experiments in traceability research through a pluggable component framework.
