Abstract

Software documentation is one of the important factors in the software maintenance. Documentation illustrates the written form of data which can be easily understandable by the software engineers. Traceability links are the links which are used to decrease the distance between the software developers and the software documentation. Previously there was a technique called AdDoc that automatically detects the changes in the documentation. In this paper we propose a method called Information Retrieval (IR). Information retrieval is well known method for the automating traceability recovery based on the similarity among the software artifacts. IR combines both textual and structural information for the traceability recovery in the software documentation. Synonymy problem can be decreased by the information retrieval method and can retrieve the correct link between the source code and the documentation. In this work, the performance of the information retrieval method is comparatively high than the previous technique.
