HAM: Cross-cutting Concerns in Eclipse

Authors: Silvia Breu, Thomas Zimmermann, and Christian Lindig

Published in: Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 6302, Aspects For Legacy Applications (2007)


Abstract
As programs evolve, newly added functionality sometimes does no longer align with the original design, ending up scattered across the software system. Aspect mining tries to identify such cross-cutting concerns in a program to support maintenance, or as a first step towards an aspect-oriented program. Previous approaches to aspect mining applied static or dynamic program analysis techniques to a single version of a system.We leverage all versions from a system's CVS history to mine aspect candidates with our Eclipse plug-in HAM: when a single CVS commit adds calls to the same (small) set of methods in many unrelated locations, these method calls are likely to be cross-cutting. HAM employs formal concept analysis to identify aspect candidates. Analysing one commit at a time makes the approach scale to industrial-sized programs. In an evaluation we mined cross-cutting concerns from Eclipse 3.2M3 and found that up to 90% of the top-10 aspect candidates are truly cross-cutting concerns.

Mining Additions of Method Calls in ArgoUML

Authors: Silvia Breu, Thomas Zimmermann, Christian Lindig, and Benjamin Livshits

Published in: Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 6302, Aspects For Legacy Applications (2007)


Abstract
In this paper we refine the classical co-change to the addition of method calls. We use this concept to find usage patterns and to identify cross-cutting concerns for ArgoUML.

Mining Eclipse for CrossCutting

Authors: Silvia Breu, Thomas Zimmermann, and Christian Lindig

Published in: Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 6302, Aspects For Legacy Applications (2007)


Abstract
Software may contain functionality that does not align with its architecture. Such cross-cutting concerns do not exist from the beginning but emerge over time. By analysing where developers add code to a program, our history-based mining identifies cross-cutting concerns in a two-step process. First, we mine CVS archives for sets of methods where a call to a specific single method was added. In a second step, simple cross-cutting concerns are combined to complex cross-cutting concerns. To compute these efficiently, we apply formal concept analysis – an algebraic theory. Unlike approaches based on static or dynamic analysis, history-based mining for cross-cutting concerns scales to industrial-sized projects: For example, we identified a locking concern that cross-cuts 1284 methods in the open-source project Eclipse.
