Renaissance: a Method for System Evolution

  • Ian Warren
Part of the Practitioner Series book series (PRACT.SER.)


Engineers have developed several techniques, based on software engineering, for practising software evolution. However, software evolution has yet to reach its full potential because, to a large extent, these techniques are not integrated. While technologies such as “reengineering”, the “evolutionary” paradigm, and “reverse engineering” make significant contributions to the field, they are difficult to use together in an effective way.
