Knowledge of software dependencies plays an important role in program comprehension and other maintenance activities. Traditionally, dependencies are derived by source code analysis, however, such an approach can be difficult to use in multi-tier hybrid software systems, or legacy applications where conventional code analysis tools simply do not work as is. In this paper, we propose a hybrid approach to detecting software dependencies by combining conceptual and domain-based coupling metrics....[Show more]
