An Assistant for Re-Engineering Legacy Systems


This paper presents a knowledge-based approach to evolving and re-engineering large legacy systems. It describes an AI application to one special area in software maintenance-upgmdiig existing software to new technology standards. This approach assists tie human engineers in the conversion of software systems by automating the tedious and knowledgeintensive conversion process. The research shows that the payoff for using the knowledge-based approach to software evolution is not only in terms of time and money saved, but also in terms of improved quality of the upgraded software system.
