The request for a nonsupported call sequence s may arise from various causes: Missing service calls The sequence s contains a call to a service not provided by B. Informally, A expects B to provide more. This kind of error is a consequence of a signature interoperability error. Superfluous service calls The sequence s describes the right order of service calls to B, but B expects additional calls to be able to process the service calls of A according to its provided protocol. Hence, B expects A to call more.

Transformation may be realized with a combination of several techniques, including source code translation, program and data restructuring, reverse engineering, and retargeting. Source code translation involves transforming old code into a new version that is written in a contemporary programming language or a newer version of the same language. For example, systems may be converted from COBOL-II into Object-Oriented COBOL (Levey 1996). , infinite loops), and data restructuring involves refreshing the data structure of legacy data files or databases.

The discussion here is limited to the first two laws, which involve the enterprise applications themselves. The first law states that applications change continually to better meet customer requirements; if they do not, they become obsolete. The second law states that over time the structure of an application gets more complex (and more chaotic). The entropy of an application tends to increase over its lifetime. Let us now consider the application lifecycle in some more detail. 2). Directly after the first version is taken into production, some initial corrective maintenance may be performed so that the application better satisfies undetected (minor) wishes of clients.
