English abstract:
Program comprehension is crucial for software maintenance activities
and is supported by reverse engineering techniques. Many of them
analyze source code and use parsers to create higher-level
representations of software systems that are more meaningful to
engineers. But the application of parsers is for some reasons not
always desirable. In this paper, we introduce Revealer a lightweight
source model extraction tool that combines advantages of lexical
analysis with syntactical analysis. It uses an easy-to-use pattern
language that supports engineers in defining pattern definitions of
diverse granularity depending on the problem at hand. In this way our
tool enables fast extraction of simple and complex code patterns that
allow engineers a quick insight into particular architectural aspects
that are expressed via source code patterns.
