Abstract

In software development, programming is considered as an important step because the design created for the software gets into actual form while coding. Intuitively, in the last two decades most software were developed using structure oriented programming. But this scenario deviates in a manner that most of software are being developed based on object oriented paradigm due to certain good features like graphical user interface design, reusability, maintainability, portability, flexibility, scalability etc. Hence this change in technology from structured programming to object oriented programming requires re-engineering and reverse engineering techniques. In this proposed system automated conversion of structured oriented code to object oriented design is attempted using clustering algorithm based on reverse engineering concept. In this approach, initially the relationship between variables and functions of the structured program are identified using Jaccard distance measure that leads to grouping or clustering.Thereby, each cluster is considered to be a class. The individual classes are further processed to obtain object oriented design.
