Identification of Reusable Software Modules in Function Oriented Software Systems Using Neural Network Based Technique
The cost of developing the software from scratch can be saved by identifying and extracting the reusable components from already developed and existing software systems or legacy systems. But the issue of how to identify reusable components from existing systems has remained relatively unexplored. The authors have used metric based approach for characterizing a software module. In this present work, the metrics McCabe's cyclometric complexity measure for complexity measurement, regularity metric, halstead software science Indicator for volume indication, reuse frequency metric and coupling metric values of the software component are used as input attributes to the different types of neural network system and reusability of the software component is calculated.
