O Estado-da-Arte das Ferramentas de Visualização de Software

Fabio PetrilloMarcelo PimentaCarla Dal Sasso Freitas

long the recent years, several visualization techniques have been developed to address problems of software engineering, such as comprehension, maintenance and software evolution. Experimentally, these techniques are evaluated through their implementation in visualization tools. However, there are no consistent reports about the current condition of these tools. The goal of this paper is to evaluate the current situation of the implementations of several software visualization techniques described in the literature. We analyzed 52 tools, compiling information about them, and a surprising result is the observation of the low stability of the implementations evaluated: 60% (31 of 52) of the tools do not even have an implementation available, making their use impractical.
