The paper presents a technique for recovering the high level design of legacy software systems according to user defined architectural plans. Architectural plans are represented using a description language and specify system components and their interfaces. Such descriptions are viewed as queries that are applied on a large database which stores information extracted from the source code of the subject legacy system. Data mining techniques and a modified branch and bound search algorithm are used to control the matching process, by which the query is satisfied and query variables are instantiated. The matching process allows the alternative results to be ranked according to data mining associations and clustering techniques and, finally, be presented to the user
