Abstract

Software visualisation is the process of modelling software systems for comprehension. The comprehension of software systems both during and after development is a crucial component of the software process. The complex interactions inherent in the object-oriented paradigm make visualisation a particularly appropriate comprehension technique, and the large volume of information typically generated during visualisation necessitates tool support.
