Abstract We provide a case study for the usage of Gin, a genetic improvement toolbox for Java. In particular, we implemented a simple GP search and targeted two software optimisation properties: runtime and repair. We ran our search algorithm on Gson, a Java library for converting Java objects to JSON and vice-versa. We report on runtime improvements and fixes found. We provide all the new code and data on the dedicated website: https://github.com/justynapt/ssbseChallenge2019.
