Although object-oriented programming promotes reusable and well factored entity decomposition, industrial software often shows traces of lack of object-oriented design and procedural thinking. This results in domain entity scattered and tangled code. This is often true in data intensive applications. Aspect mining techniques search for various patterns of scattered and tangled code pertaining to crosscutting concerns. However, in the presence of non-abstracted domain logic, the crosscutting concerns identified are inaccurately related to aspects since lack of 00 abstraction introduces false positives. This paper identifies the difficulty of identifying crosscutting concerns in systems lacking elementary object-oriented structure. It presents an approach classifying various crosscutting concerns. We report our experience on an industrial software system.
