A repository based tool for re-engineering towards an object oriented environment
Signore O., Loffredo M.
Software re-engineering and object orientation are two areas of growing interest in the last years. However, while many researchers have focused their interest in the object-oriented design methodologies, a little attention has been paid to the re-engineering towards an object-oriented environment. In this paper we examine the motivations towards object-oriented re-engineering (extendibility, robustness and reusability of the code) and the problems found in moving from a process-based to an object oriented perspective. Finally, we describe the architecture of TROOP, a tool that implements the object oriented re-engineering, combining into a single repository information describing both the conventional and the object-oriented target environment
