View Extraction and View Fusion in Architectural Understanding

Bereich: Whitepaper




When performing architectural analysis on

legacy systems, it is frequently necessary to extract the architecture of the

system, because it has not been documented, or because its documentation is out

of date. However, architectural information does not exist directly in the

artifacts that we can extract. The architecture exists in abstractions;

compositions of extracted information. Thus extracted artifacts must be able to

be flexibly aggregated and combined. We call this process view refinement and

fusion. This paper presents a workbench for architectural extraction called

Dali, and shows how Dali supports flexible extraction and fusion of

architectural information. Its use is described through two extended examples

of architectural reconstruction.
