Note that GCSpy does not ship with any of the integrations the papers
use as far as I remember. They probably would not compile anyway due to
their age. E.g. using gcspy with jikes crashes it the last time I tried
(already > 1 year ago).

You may want to take a look at
http://ssw.uni-linz.ac.at/General/Staff/TS/ that contains a source ball
for a more up-to-date version with some UI bugs fixed and some
enhancements which may or may not be useful.

Hth,
