Application of the Relational Concept Analysis (RCA) for Remodularization of a Software Architecture and Comparison with Others Techniques Based on FCA and Oriented Graph

Vol. 14  No. 3  pp. 1-8


In a previous study we proceeded to the remodularization architecture based on classes and packages using the Formal Concept Analysis (FCA) [2] [13] [14], we then got two possible remodularized architectures and we explored the issue of redistributing classes of a package to other packages, we used an approach based on Oriented Graph to determine the packages that receive the redistributed classes and we evaluated the quality of a remodularized software architecture by metrics[1]. This paper presents the usefulness of relational concept analysis (RCA) for remodularization of a software architecture composed of classes and packages and we evaluate the quality of the result by metrics of coupling and cohesion. Also we compare results obtained by application of techniques based on Relational concept analysis (RCA) between Formal Concept analysis and Oriented graph.
