Speed and scale up software re-engineering with abstraction patterns and rules.

Conference Proceeding
Liu, X., Yang, H., Zedan, H., & Cau, A. (2000)
Speed and scale up software re-engineering with abstraction patterns and rules. In International Symposium on Principles of Software Evolution, 2000. Proceedings, 90. https://doi.org/10.1109/ISPSE.2000.913226
Software reengineering is an essential part of software evolution. Two important issues faced by software reengineering techniques are the time involved and the ability to cop...

Tackling the abstraction problem for reverse engineering in a system re-engineering approach.

Conference Proceeding
Yang, H., Liu, X., & Zedan, H. (1998)
Tackling the abstraction problem for reverse engineering in a system re-engineering approach. In the proceedings of the IEEE Conference on Software Maintenance (ICSM'98), 284. https://doi.org/10.1109/ICSM.1998.738520
It is widely accepted that reverse engineering has three components: restructuring, comprehension and production of formal specification. In this paper, we advocate that the t...
