CROSSMINER stands for IDE-integrated cross project knowledge mining for open-source software development. 

CROSSMINER contributes to the Work Programme topic ICT 10 - 2016: Software Technologies. The specific theme addressed is advanced software development approaches and methodologies. The proposed work has been driven by the need of the industrial partners of the consortium for a comprehensive industrial strength open-source framework for developing new software by properly selecting and reusing existing open source components with respect to technological, quality, and licensing requirements.
As advocated by the work programme, CROSSMINER conceives techniques and tools increasing the development productivity and software quality by exploiting advanced knowledge extraction techniques applied on existing open source components to develop new software. Exceeding the minimum requirement of the call, the technologies developed in the context of CROSSMINER are being validated by nine use-cases from different application domains and sectors.
