An execution view is an important asset for developing large and complex systems. An execution view helps practitioners to describe, analyze, and communicate what a software system does at runtime and how it does it. In this paper, we present an approach to define execution viewpoints for an existing large and complex software-intensive system. This(More)
This article is an experience report about the application of a top-down strategy to use and embed an architecture reconstruction approach in the incremental software development process of the Philips MRI scanner, a representative large and complex software-intensive system. The approach is an iterative process to construct execution views without being(More)
In this paper, we present a dynamic analysis approach to increase the understandability of a large softwareintensive system, more particularly to enable the identification of dependencies between its execution entities. This approach analyzes the execution of a software system in a top-down fashion to cope with complexity and uses execution entities such as(More)
An execution view is an important asset for developing large and complex systems. An execution view helps practitioners to describe, analyze, and communicate what a software system does at runtime and how it does it. In this paper, we present an approach to define and document viewpoints that guide the construction and use of execution views for an existing(More)
When following architecture-driven strategies to develop large software-intensive systems, the analysis of the dependencies is not an easy task. In this paper, we report a systematic literature review on dependency analysis solutions. Dependency analysis concerns making dependencies due to interconnections between programs or system components explicit. The(More)
This paper presents an approach to construct execution views, which are views that describe what the software of a software-intensive system does at runtime and how it does it. The approach represents an architecture reconstruction solution based on a metamodel, a set of viewpoints, and a dynamic analysis technique. The metamodel and viewpoints capture the(More)
A resource usage view consists of models that are important assets to analyze and control usage of hardware resources such as processors and memory elements. In this paper, we present the application of a top-down approach to construct a resource usage view using actual system runtime information. The models in this view help to address the concerns of a(More)
Resource usage models are important asset to analyze and ensure the adequate usage of the system platform resources such as processors and memory elements. In this paper, we present how to construct resource usage models using actual execution information of a large software-intensive system. We have constructed this type of models for an MRI system (a(More)
This paper presents the documentation of a set of viewpoints to construct views that describe the execution architecture of a large software-intensive system: what the software of the system does at runtime and how it does it. The documentation of the viewpoints is performed using a proposed template. The documented viewpoints can be used as real examples(More)
