MONROY, Martín E; ARCINIEGAS, José L  and  RODRIGUEZ, Julio C. Characterization of Reverse Engineering Tools. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2012, vol.23, n.6, pp.31-42. ISSN 0718-0764.

An instrument for the characterization of reverse engineering tools is proposed. A new characterization structure based on two criteria, the structural aspect and the common properties between them, is proposed. For the first one the structure corresponds to an element, a function, an aspect and a characteristic, while the second one has a factor and a property. The instrument is validated in three situations that prove his usefulness for classifying and evaluating such tools. It is concluded that the proposed instrument is a complement to the work presented by other authors, maintaining its essence and facilitating their interpretation through the new defined structure. The proposal allows the independent and joint evaluation of each of the components that form reverse engineering tools.

Keywords : reverse engineering; tool characterization; characterization structure; engineering tools.
