APIBench is the benchmark dataset APIBench released in the paper "Revisiting, Benchmarking and Exploring APIRecommendation: How Far Are We?". 

APIBench contains two sub-dataset for evaluating the performance of query-based and code-based API recommendation approaches, namely APIBench-Q and APIBench-C. Each sub-dataset has a Java version and a Python version.

APIBench-Q contains 4,309 Python queries and 6,563 Java queries collected from Stack Overflow posts generated from Aug 2008 to Feb 2021 and tutorial websites Geeks4Geeks, Java2s, and Kode Java in April 2021.

APIBench-C contains 2,361 Python projects and 1,477 Java projects mined from GitHub in April 2021.

Please read the file for detailed information about the benchmark.

The evaluation results of existing API recommendation approaches can be found in this GitHub repository.
