The Tools Perspective on Software Reverse Engineering [chapter]

Holger M. Kienle, Hausi A. Müller
2010 Advances in Computers  
In this chapter we discuss three lenses, namely (1) requirements for reverse engineering tools, (2) construction of reverse engineering tools, and (3) evaluation of reverse engineering tools.  ...  The first lens identifies a number of generic quality attributes that reverse engineering tools should strive to meet.  ...  -Tool building methodology: How-and to what degree-can we adopt established software engineering techniques for building research tools?  ...
