Abstract

The problem of the disparity between domain knowledge and software source code is widely known; especially when requirement and design documents get out of date compared to source code. In this paper we describe an approach and tool support to regain domain knowledge from existing C++ source code in the domain of secondary metallurgy. The approach combines techniques from static source code analysis and domain-specific modelling.
