Many long term studies of software evolution have made the simplifying assumption that the system's architecture and low-level structure is relatively stable. In our past work, we have found that this is often untrue; therefore, we have sought to investigate ways to detect and model structural change in software systems through a technique we call origin analysis [6] and supported a tool called Beagle [7]. In this position paper, we present a summary of our recent and ongoing work in this area… CONTINUE READING
