|Abstract:||Traceability in software development has gained interest due to its software maintainability and quality assurance benefits. Artifacts such as code, requirements, mockups, test cases, among others, are feasible trace sources/targets during the software development process. Existing scientific approaches support tasks like identifying untraced artifacts, establishing new traces, and validating existing traces. However, most approaches require input existing traceability data or are restricted to a certain application domain hindering their practical application. This contemporary challenge in information systems engineering calls for novel traceability solutions. In this paper, we present OntoTrace: a tool for supporting traceability tasks in software development projects by using ontology-based automatic reasoning. OntoTrace allows software development teams for inferring traceability-related data such as i) which are the traceable source/target artifacts; ii) which artifacts are not yet traced; and iii) given a specific artifact, which are the possible traces between it and other artifacts. We demonstrate how OntoTrace works in the context of the Swiss startup LogicFlow AG, supporting the traceability between functional/non-functional requirements and user interface test cases. We conclude the paper by reflecting on the experience from applying the approach in practice, and we draw on future challenges and next research endeavors.|
