Abstract

The increasing code complexity in modern enterprise software systems exceeds the capabilities of most software engineers to understand the system's behavior by just looking at its program code. Large software landscapes - often consisting of hundreds of applications - further increase this complexity.

In my talk, I will present our live visualization approach of monitoring traces for large software landscapes to tackle this challenge. Our approach, called ExplorViz, combines a landscape and an application-level perspective. The landscape-level perspective provides an overview of the software landscape. The application-level perspective provides a visualization utilizing the 3D city metaphor for each application. In addition, I will show two related techniques which are physical software models ("software to touch") and a virtual reality approach for exploring software cities. Furthermore, I will report on the conducted evaluations in the context of ExplorViz and our findings.
