We recently developed a static analysis to extract runtime architectures from object-oriented programs written in existing languages. The approach relies on adding ownership domain annotations to the code, and statically extracts a hierarchical runtime architecture from an annotated program. We present promising results from a week-long on-site field study to evaluate the method and the tools on a 30-KLOC module of a 250-KLOC commercial system. In a few days, we were able to add the annotations to the module and extract a top-level architecture for review by a developer.
