We present Bixie, a tool to detect inconsistencies in Java code. Bixie detectsinconsistent code at a higher precision than previous tools and provides novelfault localization techniques to explain why code is inconsistent. Wedemonstrate the usefulness of Bixie on over one million lines of code, showthat it can detect inconsistencies at a low false alarm rate, and fix a numberof inconsistencies in popular open-source projects.
