Software architecture modeling and representation became a main phase of the development process of complex systems. In fact, software architecture representation provides many advantages during all phases of software life cycle. Nevertheless, for many systems, like legacy or eroded ones, there is no available representation of their architectures. In order to benefit from this representation, we propose, in this paper, an approach called ROMANTIC which focuses on extracting a component-based architecture of an existing object-oriented system. The main idea of this approach is to propose a quasi-automatic process of architecture recovery based on semantic and structural characteristics of software architecture concepts.
