  1. Serge Demeyer, Stéphane Ducasse, and Michele Lanza. A Hybrid Reverse Engineering Platform Combining Metrics and Program Visualization. In Françoise Balmas, Mike Blaha, and Spencer Rugaber (Ed.), Proceedings of Working Conference on Reverse Engineering (WCRE'99), IEEE Computer Society, 1999. DOI 

    Surprising as it may seem, many of the early adopters of the object-oriented paradigm already face a number of problems typically encountered in large-scale legacy systems. Consequently, reverse engineering techniques are relevant in an object-oriented context as well. This paper investigates a hybrid approach, combining the immediate appeal of visualisations with the scalability of metrics. We validate such a hybrid approach by showing how CodeCrawler ---the experimental platform we built--- allowed us to understand the program structure of, and identify potential design anomalies in a public domain software system.
