Early aspects are crosscutting concerns that are identified and addressed at the requirements and architecture level, while code aspects are crosscutting concerns that manifest at the code level. Currently, there are many approaches to address the identification and modularization of these cross-cutting concerns at each level, but very few techniques try to analyze the relationship between early aspects and code aspects. This paper presents a tool for automating the process of identifying traceability links between requirements-level aspects and code aspects, which is a first step towards an in-depth analysis. We also present an empirical evaluation of the tool with a real-life Web-based information system and a software product line for handling data on mobile devices. The results show that we can identify traceability links between early aspects and code aspects with a high accuracy.
