Java OSS Travis-CI Build Failure Dataset

Rausch, Thomas

Presented here are the GitHub repositories, Travis-CI build logs, and their categorizations, that were used in the publication "An Empirical Analysis of Build Failures in the Continuous Integration Workflows of Java-Based Open-Source Software" in 14th International Conference on Mining Software Repositories (MSR'17), 2017 (


  • git-repositories.tar.gz
    contains the Git repositories analyzed. Each commit that triggered a Travis-CI build (beginning from the time the continuous mining process was started) is tagged with the Travis-CI build ID
  • logcat-categories-and-patterns.tar.gz
    contains the error categories of the analyzed log files that were coded from the exploratory analysis
  • projects.csv
    maps the Travis-CI project ID to the GitHub project slug
  • travis-ci-logs.tar
    contains for each project the analyzed log files that were scraped from Travis-CI. Each txt.gz file in the project folders contains the log of one Travis job. A build may have multiple jobs.

What is currently not part of this upload is the data for associating builds (as indicated by the git tag) and their job logs (the name of the txt.gz files). This can however be queried from the Travis-CI API (
