Component evaluation and component interface identification from object oriented System

Shivani Budhkar, Dr.Arpita Gopal


Component based technology has proven to be more reusable and suitable for new computing environments than object oriented technology. Most of the existing object- oriented systems do not have reliable software architecture as system evolves. As High level software architecture is useful in all phases of software life cycle, it is important to reengineer object oriented system and recover component based architecture. For this purpose, we have developed a process and a tool which creates components from existing object oriented system. We have defined three steps to recover component based architecture .In this paper we will demonstrate how to extract interfaces among components and component evaluation while recovering component based architecture. We have evaluated feasibility of this tool on Java software.


Keywords: Component interface, component, Component Evaluation, coupling, cohesion
