Visualization of software system architecture and its evolution

V.Y. Romanov

Abstract


Reverse engineering CASE-tools can produce different descriptions of software architectures. The article analyzes and defines the task of exploring and comparing software architectures presented as design structure matrix. The visualization method to compare architectures based on the decomposition of the software system and on the dependencies of program elements. In particular, to compare the architectures for the different versions of the system. The paper shows how the clustering software can be applied in practice.
