Abstract
This research project will explore the extraction, visualization, and validation of multiple views of as-is architectures for large software systems in multiple source languages. It will focus on providing support for complex real languages including Ada95, C++, and SQL. Based on generalized compiler technology, the techniques will be extensible in a practical way to a broad range of languages. The research focuses on extraction of multiple architectural styles, visualization using constraint-based graph layout implemented in a parallel language for performance, and architectural query languages using symbolic formulas to enable scale.
