Abstract: Software companies develop projects in various domains, but hardly archive the programs for future use. The method signatures are stored in the OWL and the source code components are stored in HDFS. The OWL minimizes the software development cost considerably. The design phase generates many artifacts. One such artifact is the UML class diagram for the project that consists of classes, methods, attributes, relations etc., as metadata. Methods needed for the project can be extracted from this OWL using UML metadata. The UML class diagram is given as input and the metadata about the method is extracted. The method signature is searched in OWL for the similar method prototypes and the appropriate code components will be extracted from the HDFS and reused in a project. By doing this process the time, manpower system resources and cost will be reduced in Software development.
