Abstract:

Complex software is notoriously opaque. This opacity is costly for software engineers who must make pivotal design decisions without knowing the tradeoffs and consequences of those decisions. We propose a visualization tool that combines powerful document and software analysis techniques with rich three-dimensional visualizations. Deep static analysis augmented with information retrieval technology gives engineers access to the important dependences that crisscross software projects. A powerful visualization framework makes these dependences easier to explore. The resulting tool allows a user to start from a high-level system view and drill down to important details without losing context. Such an all-in-one view will make it easier for engineers to understand complex systems and make tradeoff decisions based on that understanding.
