Abstract
One of the challenging problems for software develop-
ers is guaranteeing that a system as built is consistent
with its architectural design. In this paper we describe a
technique that uses run time observations about an exe-
cuting system to construct an architectural view of the
system. With this technique we develop mappings that
exploit regularities in system implementation and archi-
tectural style. These mappings describe how low-level
system events can be interpreted as more abstract archi-
tectural operations. We describe the current implementa-
tion of a tool that uses these mappings, and show that it
can highlight inconsistencies between implementation
and architecture.
