ABSTRACT
Programmers regularly use search as part of the development
process, attempting to identify an appropriate API for a
problem, seeking more information about an API, and
seeking samples that show how to use an API. However,
neither general-purpose search engines nor existing code
search engines currently fit their needs, in large part because
the information programmers need is distributed across many
pages. We present Assieme, a Web search interface that
effectively supports common programming search tasks by
combining information from Web-accessible Java Archive
(JAR) files, API documentation, and pages that include
explanatory text and sample code. Assieme uses a novel
