XIRC: a kernel for cross-artifact information engineering in software development environments

M. Eichberg, M. Mezini, K. Ostermann, T. Schafer
11th Working Conference on Reverse Engineering  
We describe XIRC, a tool and architecture that enables to define queries over a uniform representation of all artifacts of a software project.  ...  These queries can be used for general cross-artifact information retrieval or for more special applications like checking implementation restrictions or conformance to style guides.  ...  In this paper we make a case for replacing these special-purpose tools by an open, cross-artifact information engineering platform as an integral part of software development environments.  ...
