Software Design, Code Smell Detection


This paper provides an extensive overview of existing research in the field of software refactoring. To make a computer program more readable and maintainable, refactoring technique is used. Code smells may be considered as a potential problem in the software design which needs to be refactored, in order to enhance the quality of a particular software product. Locating a code smell is hard and cumbersome task, because code smells are usually scattered across the source code. Smell detection tools and techniques have been proposed to help improve the user experience and quality of the software. Recent researches towards smell detection suggest many automated smell detection tools may help the humans to detect code smells. The results of the above experiments focuses on what the current smell detection can tools do and relevant areas of further improvement.
