Merging and splitting source code artifacts is a common activity during the lifespan of a software system; as developers rethink the essential structure of a system or plan for a new evolutionary direction, so must they be able to reorganize the design artifacts at various abstraction levels as seems appropriate. However, while the raw effects of such changes may be plainly evident in the new artifacts, the original intent of the design changes is often lost. In this paper, we discuss how we… CONTINUE READING
