We present an experiment in identifying coarse-grained persistent objects in a legacy system of an Italian public organisation. Object methods are searched for at the program level driven by the minimisation of the coupling between objects. This strategy is useful in incremental migration projects requiring the identification of largely independent subsystems needing low re-engineering and de-coupling costs to be first encapsulated in different wrappers and then selectively replaced. The aim of the experiment was to evaluate the feasibility of this approach when applied to large software systems.
