ABSTRACT:
In this work, we propose an extensible programming framework, named Xevolver. The framework exposes an abstract syntax tree (AST) in an XML data format to programmers. Hence, the programmers can adopt various XML-related technologies to transform, analyze, and visualize the application code. In this work, we use XSLT to define custom compiler directives for application-specific code transformations. By incrementally inserting the user-defined directives, a real application can be migrated to another system without significantly modifying the original code, because custom code translation rules are written in an external XSLT file. We can change the behaviors of user-defined directives for individual systems by changing XSLT rules in the external file. Accordingly, we can evolutionarily improve the application so as to have a high performance portability without messing up the original code.
