Abstract

ZAPATA, Carlos Mario; OCHOA, Óscar Andrés  and  VELEZ, Camilo. UN MÉTODO DE INGENIERÍA INVERSA DE CÓDIGO JAVA HACIA DIAGRAMAS DE SECUENCIAS DE UML 2.0. Rev.EIA.Esc.Ing.Antioq [online]. 2008, n.9, pp.31-42. ISSN 1794-1237.

Software reverse engineering seems to be the process for helping software quality assurance and documentation in applications with low-quality analysis and design models. It also helps for decreasing maintenance cost and time. Currently, some CASE tools and research proposals assist analysts to develop reverse engineering process with UML diagrams as a result (especially class and sequence diagram). Some of them have reached experimental phases. Some others are focused more on class diagram and less on sequence diagram. A third group of CASE tools and proposals obtains sequence diagram, but the resulting diagram lacks some of the elements of the UML 2.0 specification. In this paper, we propose a method for automating the conversion of JAVA code into UML 2.0 sequence diagram, by means of the application of transformation rules for converting code elements to the diagram elements. We also present an example of the method application through a prototype named UNC-Inversor.

Keywords : Reverse engineering; sequence diagram; UML; JAVA; transformation rules.
