Aspect Mining Based on Object-Oriented Systems’ Dynamic Behavior Models
Aspect mining is a reverse engineering process that aims at finding crosscutting concerns in existing systems. This paper describes an aspect mining approach making use of the results of reverse engineering, statechart diagram, to aid in the understanding of an object-oriented software system’s behaviors. An aspect based on the recovered statechart diagram is defined as a set of states and an event. These states will transit to the same state after they send the event. Finally, systematic experiment is conducted in the paper in order to verify the correctness and validity of this approach.
