ABSTRACT
The design of software should be made up of small packages
and classes. The Java Standard API is now very large since
Java's beginnings, and contains over 200 packages, nearly
5800 classes, and nearly 50,000 methods. We have con-
ducted visual software analysis on the Java Standard API
using existing software visualization techniques to identify
large packages and classes in the API. Our analysis has iden-
tified that there exists a number of large packages and classes
in the Java Standard API which leads to possible refactoring
