Evolution of software has long been recognized as one of the mostproblematic and challenging areas in the field of softwareengineering, as evidenced by the high, often up to 60-80%,life-cycle costs attributed to this activity over the life of asoftware system. Studies of software evolution are central tothe understanding and practice of software development. Yetit has received relatively little attention in the field ofsoftware engineering. This book focuses on topics aimed atgiving a scientific insight into the aspect of software evolutionand feedback.
In summary, the book covers conceptual, phenomenological,empirical, technological and theoretical aspects of the field ofsoftware evolution - with contributions from the leadingexperts.
This book delivers an up-to-date scientific understanding ofwhat software evolution is, to show why it is inevitable for realworld applications, and it demonstrates the role of feedbackin software development and maintenance. The book alsoaddresses some of the phenomenological and technologicalunderpinnings and includes rules and guidelines for increasedsoftware evolvability and, in general, sustainability of theevolution process.
Software Evolution and Feedback provides a long overdue,scientific focus on software evolution and the role of feedback inthe software process, making this the indispensable guide for allsoftware practitioners, researchers and managers in the softwareindustry.
