Improving aspect mining with program dependencies Singh, Navjot
Aspect mining is the process of semi-automatically identifying crosscutting concerns in non-aspect oriented code so that they may be refactored into structured aspect oriented code. In this work, we extend work on aspect mining by examining how patterns of control and dataflow can be used as indicators of aspectual (or crosscutting) behavior. We look for indicators of code which could be refactored into aspects with a clear, narrowly defined interface to the code it would advise. We validated the usefulness of our approach by implementing three analyses and examining the results applied to two open-source projects.
