English abstract:
Architectural patterns and styles represent important design
decisions and thus are valuable abstractions for architecture
recovery. Recognizing them is a challenge because styles and
patterns basically span several architectural elements and can be
implemented in various ways depending on the problem domain and the
implementation variants. Our approach uses source code structures as
patterns and introduces an iterative and interactive architecture
recovery approach built upon such lower-level patterns extracted
from source code. Associations between extracted pattern instances
and architectural elements such as modules arise which result in new
and higher-level views of the software system. These pattern views
provide information for a consecutive refinement of pattern
definitions to aggregate and abstract higher-level patterns which
finally enable the description of a software system's architecture.
