    Software systems usually follow many programming rules prescribed in an architectural model. However, developers frequently violate these rules, introducing architectural drifts in the source code. In this paper, we present a data mining approach for architecture conformance based on a combination of static and historical software analysis. For this purpose, the proposed approach relies on data mining techniques to extract structural and historical architectural patterns. In addition, we propose a methodology that uses the extracted patterns to detect both absences and divergences in source-code based architectures. We applied the proposed approach in an industrial strength system. As a result we detected 137 architectural violations, with an overall precision of 41.02%.
