Domain-specific reuse is seen as promising way to increase the value of reuse. This paper reports our on-going work aimed to identify domain-specific software components from an existing system to achieve large scale reuse. The fundamental motivation of the proposed method is to reduce the amount of source code the human-expert has to explore in order to identify domain-specific candidates. The basic premise assumed by this method is that reusable components have certain quality attributes like functional usefulness, readability, testability and etc. which can be measured to certain extent with help of metrics.
