|PDF - Accepted Version|
Software engineers often have to resort to various program analysis tools to analyze the structure and sometimes behavior of a system before they can make changes that preserve system reliability and other quality attributes. The Knowledge Discovery Metamodel (KDM) is an OMG standard which specifies a language-independent representation of the programs to be analyzed. The advantages of using KDM are
numerous including an increase in productivity and a cut in overall costs during maintenance, as it allows for a reuse of available KDM compatible tools and expertise. Currently, KDM supports a number of procedural and object-oriented programming languages. However, no support currently exists for aspect-oriented programming languages. This thesis aims at filling this gap, by extending KDM to support AspectJ, perhaps the most popular aspect-oriented language. We show an application of the extended model to an aspect-oriented application.
