Description {{html clean="false" wiki="false"}}

In software development, reusing existing Application Programming Interfaces(APIs) significantly improves programmer productivity and software quality.
Code examples are important and key resource for understanding the usage of APIs. However, one study found that the greatest obstacle to learning an API in practice is "insufficient or inadequate examples". It tends to be time-consuming and require significant human effort for developers searching API information, such as examples, on the Web to understand the right usage of APIs.
Many existing work mines API usage examples from client code repositories. But examples from client codes are always long and complex, also the client code cannot be obtained when projects newly publish.
The goal of this topic/project is to mine efficient and easy-to-understand usage examples for APIs in newly published projects.
