Design Principles in Architectural Evolution: a Case Study
Michel Wermelinger
The Open University, UK


We wish to investigate how structural design principles are used in practice, in order to assess the utility and relevance of such principles to the maintenance of large, complex, long-lived, successful systems. In this paper we take Eclipse as the case study and check whether its architecture follows, throughout multiple releases, some principles proposed in the literature.
