detector that scales to large codebases and works on any Java bytecode.  ...  We evaluate THEX by examining its performance on codebases with known design patterns (and therefore metapatterns) and find that it performs quite well, with recall of over 90%.  ...  We have presented THEX, a tool for extracting metapatterns from Java bytecode. In practice, THEX quickly and accurately finds metapattern design motifs.  ...

Pree's metapatterns, which group patterns purely by structure (rather than intent), and argue that metapatterns are a simpler model to explain recent findings by Di Penta et al. (2008).  ...  We also find that both design pattern and metapattern roles were strong determinants of size.  ...  Yann-Gaël Guéhéneuc for allowing the use of the Ptidej toolset and pattern detection data, Beat Fluri for his change distiller tool, and to Sci-Tech corporation for providing academic use of Understand for Java  ...
