To facilitate software maintenance and evolution, a helpful step is to locate features concerned in a particular maintenance task. In the literature, both dynamic and interactive approaches have been proposed for feature location. In this article, we present a static and noninteractive method for achieving this objective. The main idea of our approach is to use information retrieval (IR) technology to reveal the basic connections between features and computational units in the source code. Due… CONTINUE READING
