The return of the prodigal son, Day 42

I jumped a total of 34 days after the last update.  During this period I a. bought a new laptop, b. went to Vancouver for a wedding and spent an weekend there.  c. farewell-ed my summer roommate d.  spent around a week soul-searching of what I'm supposed to do.

Today I finally unpacked the ConcernExtractor... however, just as any kind of software update, CE no longers works on Eclipse 3.4.  However, the plugin did load now :) so the rest is just code defect.

Finally, spending the night on CE also makes me rethink how I need to write my final section - how does CE help to locate and refactor the crosscutting clusters.  I realized that I don't need to try very hard into making sense of the data.  I only need to show that:

1. CE lets us visualize the location of the clusters

2. CE can simplifies the pointcut expression needed.

But now I am having a stomachache so I will stop and resume tomorrow morning perhaps?
