Executive Summary

Static views of object-oriented source code as presented in a Development Environment (IDE) do not provide explicit representations of dynamic collaboration to describe how source artifacts communicate at run-time. Direct access within an IDE to explicit representations of dynamic collaborations would provide developers with useful insights into a system's behavior. In this paper, the authors describe how they seamlessly integrate novel interactive visual representations of dynamic collaborations between static artifacts to complement traditional static concepts within the IDE.
