Abstract

We performed an industrial exploratory case study to analyze the software reuse process of a medium size company which is a technology leader in a niche market. Two unstructured interviews and code duplication analyses of four SVN dumps report about a development practice that resulted in more efficient maintenance, due to archiving complete versions of every shipped software, and more efficient development, due to duplication and modification of the most similar program, instead of implementing a new program from scratch.
