Abstract

Architectural smells can negatively impact on different software qualities and can represent a relevant source of architectural debt. Several architectural smells have been defined by different researchers. Moreover, both academia and industry proposed several tools for software quality analysis, but it is not always clear to understand which tools provide also support for architectural smells detection and if the tools developed for this specific purpose are effectively available or not. In this paper we propose a catalogue of architectural smells for which, at least one tool able to detect the smell exists. We outline the main differences in the detection techniques exploited by the tools and we propose a classification of these architectural smells according to the violation of three design principles.
