Refactoring; -aware software merging and configuration management Journal Article uri icon



  • Refactoring tools allow programmers to change their source code quicker than before. However, the complexity of these changes cause versioning tools that operate at a file level to lose the history of entities and be unable to merge refactored entities. This problem can be solved by semantic, operation-based SCM with persistent IDs. MolhadoRef, our proto-type, can successfully merge edit and refactoring operations which were performed on different development branches, preserves program history better and makes it easier to understand program evolution.
