Measuring similarity between software artifacts

  title={Measuring similarity between software artifacts},
  author={George Spanoudakis and Panos Constantopoulos},
This paper presents a model of estimating the similarity of software artifacts so as to promote their analogical reuse. The model permits comparisons between artifacts developed at the various stages of the software development (i.e specifications, designs and code) from conceptual descriptions of these artifacts. This is achieved by using metrics measuring the distance between such descriptions with respect to general conceptual modeling abstractions(i.e the classification, the generalization… CONTINUE READING
