Abstract

The commonality and variability analysis of legacy software assets requires high costs in terms of personnel and time in extractive core asset development. We propose a technique for supporting the commonality and variability analysis, targeting the requirements and structural models of legacy software assets for the development of a feature diagram and a product line architecture (PLA). We analyze the commonality and variability of the sentences as requirements and classes as structural models by calculating similarities based on a vector space model. By using our technique, the costs in terms of personnel and time required for the analysis of legacy software assets can be reduced.
