We describe a technique developed using C++ language and Unreal Engine 4 that allows users to visualise software systems written in object-oriented Java through virtual reality and using the city metaphor. Our aim is to use virtual reality to visualise the metrics of classes and packages of a software system. In this paper, we present a prototype.

Abstract

We describe a technique developed using C++ language and Unreal Engine 4 that allows users to visualise software systems written in object-oriented Java through virtual reality and using the city metaphor. Our aim is to use virtual reality to visualise the metrics of classes and packages of a software system. In this paper, we present a prototype. The ultimate goal will be to demonstrate that it is possible to use virtual reality to better understand software.
