Summary

From ACM: "In cases where architectural documentation is outdated or missing, software architecture reconstruction (SAR) techniques may be used to create architectural views of a system. This paper describes a case study in which SAR techniques are applied to reconstruct module views of a case system; a debt settlements suite for local governments, developed in C#. A manual approach and its results are described and compared to the outcome of a layers reconstruction algorithm. Furthermore, this paper explains how software architecture compliance checking (SACC) techniques may help to test the results of reconstruction activities. In this study, SAR and SACC were supported by HUSACCT, a tool that provides rich sets of module and rule types in support of layers, facade, and gateway patterns." https://doi.org/10.1145/3129790.3129809
