From retrospect to prospect: Assessing modularity and stability from software architecture

Kanwarpreet Sethi, Yuanfang Cai, Sunny Wong, Alessandro Garcia, Claudio Sant'Anna
2009 2009 Joint Working IEEE/IFIP Conference on Software Architecture & European Conference on Software Architecture  
By contrasting with an implementation-level analysis, we observe that these metrics can effectively reveal which modularization alternative generates more stable, modular design from highlevel models.  ...  Tradeoffs of modularization alternatives, such as aspect-oriented vs. object-oriented decompositions, thus need to be assessed from architecture models instead of source code.  ...  Second, systematic comparisons of contemporary modularization techniques are usually based on source code analysis [1] , [3] , [7] .  ...
