Method stereotype distribution is used as a signature for software systems. The stereotype for each method is determined using a presented taxonomy. The counts of the different stereotypes form a signature of the system. Determining method stereotypes is done automatically and is based on language (C++) features, idioms, and the main role (purpose) of a method. The intent is to use the distribution of method stereotype is an indicator of system architecture.
