Moose is a language-independent environment for reverse- and re-engineering complex software systems. Moose provides a set of services including a common meta-model, metrics evaluation and visualization, a model repository, and generic GUI support for querying, browsing and grouping. The development of Moose began at the Software Composition Group in 1997, and is currently contributed to and used by researchers in at least seven European universities. Moose offers an extensible meta-described metamodel, a query engine, a metric engine and several visualizations. Moose is currently in its fourth release and comprises 55, 000 lines of code in 700 classes.
The RMoDteam is currently the main maintainer of the Moose platform. There have been 150 publications (journal, international conferences, PhD theses) based on the Moose environment.
