Since the quality of the structure has major impact on the maintainability of a system, the structure has to be reconditioned from time to time. Even if recent advances in the fields of automated detection of bad smells and refactorings have made life easier for software engineers, this is still a very complex and resource consuming task.Search-based approaches have turned out to be… CONTINUE READING
