A good evolution process and a good architecture can greatly support the maintainability of long-lived, large software systems. We present ArEvol, a dataset for the empirical study of architectural evolution. The dataset comprises two popular systems from the same domain and using the same component model, to make comparative studies possible. Besides the original component metadata, ArEvol includes scripts to obtain simplified models that nevertheless support rich studies of architectural evolution, as the authors’ previous work has shown.
