A Methodological Approach for Software Architecture Recovery


Background/Objectives: The software architecture recovery process is an activity that is included in different contexts. However, the methodological proposals to perform this process do not take into account the particular needs of the context in which it is developed. The objective of this work is to propose a methodology for Software Architecture Recovery, responding the specific needs of the context in which the need to recover the architecture of a software product is presented. Methods: The model was obtained after applying the pattern-matching technique in order to establish the common aspects to all the proposals identified in the literature review. Findings: The results of the evaluation of the methodological proposal reveal the usefulness when recovering architectures, since it allows focusing attention on the most relevant aspects of recovery for the specific context in which the process is performed. Novelty: The defined methodological proposal is a new way of performing architecture recovery processes, which achieves more relevant results to the context in which the needs arise.
