Are automatically-detected code anomalies relevant to architectural modularity?

Isela Macia, Joshua Garcia, Daniel Popescu, Alessandro Garcia, Nenad Medvidovic, Arndt von Staa
2012 Proceedings of the 11th annual international conference on Aspect-oriented Software Development - AOSD '12  
In this paper, we present an exploratory analysis that investigates to what extent the automatically-detected code anomalies are related to problems that occur with an evolving system's architecture.  ...  More directly, however, the modularity of software implementations degrades through the introduction of code anomalies, informally known as code smells.  ...  We have also selected two software product lines and a middleware. The third and fourth systems are product lines for deriving applications that manipulate media on mobile devices [12] .  ...
