A good evolution process and a good architecture
can greatly support the maintainability of long-lived, large software
systems. We present AREVOL, a dataset for the empirical
study of architectural evolution. The dataset comprises two
popular systems from the same domain and using the same
component model, to make comparative studies possible. Besides
the original component metadata, AREVOL includes scripts to
obtain simplified models that nevertheless support rich studies of
architectural evolution, as the authors’ previous work has shown.
