Project/Thesis Title: Inter-language dependency analysis in multi-language systems

Abstract: Nowadays, developers are often choosing to use multiple programming languages to implement features in a given software project. Since each programming language has its own rules (lexical, semantic, and syntactical), program comprehension of multi-language systems becomes more complex and maintenance activities become more challenging. This is because generic static dependency analyses are no longer able to follow direct function calls in order to determine dependencies, i.e., they need to understand the specific calling convention between, for example, Java and C++. In contrast to the work on dependency analysis in mono-language systems, dependency analysis for multi-language systems is not well established yet and is still subject to investigation.
