Taxonomy Item Automated Reverse Design

Large systems are divided into smaller subsystems and modules which import from each other. The subsystems and modules and their use relationship is called the software architecture. The software architecture can be recovered automatically to some extend with tools.

This section provides information about methods and tools that automatically abstract the architectural design from source code. Some of the approaches are able to subsume modules into a automatically derived subsystem structure.
