Analysis Problems in ABL and How To Solve Them

Printer-friendly version

Many ABL systems have their origins many years ago. Most have received many layers of modification, typically resulting in complex and poorly structured systems. Modifying or extending such systems can often be extremely difficult. Good analysis is needed to avoid unintended collateral damage from changes and to decide where to make changes in the first place. Good analysis is also the first step in transformation, since one must know what is there before deciding how to replace it. In this presentation, I will explore a variety of analytic problems and the tools that are available to solve them. The tools will range from those built-in to the product to open source tools and commercial tools.
