Mining Software Repositories for Software Metrics (MSR-SM): Conceptual Framework

Readability is employed to enhance source codes for subsequent maintenance and extensibility.  ...  But code readability is not simply computable while dealing with open source software as contributors access the code and modify its structure according to his/her style of coding.  ...  For example, one may be interested in the growth of a system, others in change of relationship between source code entities and some in reuse of components.  ...

Rozita Kadar, Jamal Othman, Naemah Abdul Wahab, Saiful Nizam Warris
2019 Journal of Computing Research and Innovation  
This technique is significant to users because the criteria of source code cannot be physically viewed.  ...  The purpose of program visualisation is to translate a program into a graphical view to show either the program code, data or control flow.  ...  Although the dependency graph has been widely used in representing a relationship, it is often more complex than the original source code artefacts.  ...

View-based maintenance of graphical user interfaces

Peng Li, Eric Wohlstadter
2008 Proceedings of the 7th international conference on Aspect-oriented software development - AOSD '08  
One difficulty in software maintenance is that the relationship between observed program behavior and source code is not always clear.  ...  In this paper we are concerned specifically with the maintenance of graphical user interfaces (GUIs). User interface code can crosscut the decomposition of applications making GUIs hard to maintain.  ...  Software Maintenance One difficulty in software development is that the relationship between observed program behavior and source code is not always clear.  ...
