Abstract: In order to maintain, extend or reuse software projects one has to primarily understand what a system does and how well it does it. And, while in some cases information on system functionality exists, information covering the non-functional aspects is usually unavailable. Thus, one has to infer such knowledge by extracting design patterns directly from the source code. Several tools have been developed to identify design patterns, however most of them are limited to compilable and in most cases executable code, they rely on complex representations, and do not offer the developer any control over the detected patterns. In this paper we present DP-CORE, a design pattern detection tool that defines a highly descriptive representation to detect known and define custom patterns. DP-CORE is flexible, identifying exact and approximate pattern versions even in non-compilable code. Our analysis indicates that DP-CORE provides an efficient alternative to existing design pattern detection tools.
