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...
