Object-Oriented Reengineering: The FAMOOS Experience
University of Berne, Switzerland

Surprising as it may seem, many of the early adopters of the object-oriented paradigm already face a number of problems typically encountered in large-scale legacy systems. Software engineers are now confronted with millions of lines of industrial source code, developed using object-oriented design methods and languages of the late 80s. These systems exhibit a range of problems, effectively preventing them from satisfying the evolving requirements imposed by their customers. This presentation will share our knowledge concerning the reengineering of object-oriented legacy systems. We will draw upon our experiences with the FAMOOS project, to show you techniques and tools we have applied on real industrial OO systems to detect and repair problems. In particular, we will discuss issues like tool integration, design extraction, metrics, refactoring and program visualisation.
