Chang impact analysis is an useful technique for software evolution. Many techniques have been proposed for supporting change impact analysis of procedural or object-oriented software, but no effort has been made for change impact analysis of aspect-oriented software. In this paper, we present an approach to supporting change impact analysis of aspect-oriented software based on program slicing technique. The main feature of our approach is to assess the effect of changes in an aspect-oriented program by analyzing its source code, and therefore, the process of change impact analysis can be automated completely.
