Executive Summary

The research domain of aspect mining studies the problem of (semi-)automatically identifying potential aspects and crosscutting concerns in a software system, to improve the system's comprehensibility or enable its migration to an aspect-oriented solution. Unfortunately, most proposed aspect mining techniques have not lived up to their expectations yet. In this paper, the authors provide a list of problems that most aspect mining techniques suffer from and identify some of the root causes underlying these problems.
