The Impact of Reusing Open-Source Software Model in Software Maintenance

Nedhal A. Al-Saiyd
Abstract—Open Source Software (OSS) is becoming very popular and using OSS in maintenance activities has become one of the OSS important issues. Researches in the area of reuse-based maintenance using OOS are rare. The attributes and metrics of OSS maintenance processes are identified depending on literature study. We have proposed a maintenance framework model for reusing of OSS applications in software maintenance, because there are no well-specified guidelines to follow for reuse-based maintenance using OOS. We have tried to shorten the gap between the change request and the reuse-based maintenance using OOS. The paper also shows how to analyze OOS modularity using functional points.

Index Terms—Open-source software, maintenance process models, reuse-base maintenance, OSS customization.
