This paper presents an implementation of the "form template method" refactoring. This transformation has not been automated yet, but has many similarities with other transformations such as clone detection and removal or method extraction. Forming a template method is a difficult process because it has to deal with code statements directly. Few abstractions and algorithms have been investigated yet, compared to transformations dealing with higher level aspects such as the classes, methods… CONTINUE READING
