Many large-scale software systems have unprecedented complexity. The basic problem lies in how to construct a complex network topology models that can reflect the complexity of software systems. Based on studying the theory development and application status of complex networks, the complex network topology rules based on component of software system are proposed, the formalized definition of software complex network model is proposed and the application value of software complex network model is prospected. These provide a positive theoretical inspiration and reference value for applying the complex network achievements to the next generation software engineering.
