ing functions, so on), and enhancing functional structures (relocating functional components into other or new modules). Poor software structure results from an immature process, improper prototyping, overly optimistic deadlines, etc. (Arnold, 1989). Even the structure of well designed software tends to deteriorate as it is maintained over time (Lehman, 1980). The restructuring of old and new software systems can potentially make them easier to understand, change, and reuse. Restructured… CONTINUE READING
