Software visualisation is the process of modelling software systems for comprehension. The comprehension of software systems both during and after development is a crucial component of the software process. The complex interactions inherent in the object-oriented paradigm make visualisation a particularly appropriate comprehension technique, and the large volume of information typically generated during visualisation necessitates tool support. In order to address the disadvantages with current visualisation techniques, an approach is proposed that integrates abstraction, structural and behavioural perspectives, and statically and dynamically extracted information. The aim of this research is to improve the effectiveness of visualisation techniques for large-scale software understanding based on the use of abstraction. interrelated facets and the integration of statically and dynamically extracted information.
