Abstract
The basic idea behind software reuse is that software devel-
opers use reusable components found in software repositories to
reduce the amount of code that has to be written and so increase
productivity. A problem arises, however, if the repository is too big
-- it becomes difficult to find relevant components. What is needed
is an effective means to query repositories. Most approaches to de-
veloping such means involves creating a good index to which the
queries can be applied. Developing a good index requires identi-
fying the relevant information on which to base the index. In this
paper, we present the results of a project that used source code as
the basis for the index.
Keywords: Java Standard API, Software Repositories,
