Pinned topic Reverse Engineering Java code --- Sequence Diagrams Possible?

‏2010-10-05T20:08:42Z |
Hi,

When I reverse engineer java code in Rhapsody, the only artifacts that I am getting are Class diagrams.

I was looking through documentation to see if I could generate Sequence Diagrams as well when reverse engineering this code.

I can't find anything about how to do this. Is it even possible? Am I just really really missing something?

Thanks,

D

    I'd be amazed if it does

    Yep you are definitely missing something. How on earth can you draw sequence diagrams from reverse engineering? What would you like to be on the sequence diagram? Which sequence? What day? or do you want all sequence diagrams possible? Import might take a while then!
    Automatically drawing behavioral diagrams or communication diagrams is extremely difficult if not downright impossible.
    I always say to customers who ask me if I can draw statecharts from reverse engineered code:
    If I could do that we both would not be here. You would be picking up your unemployment check and I would be in Italy, testing my new Ferrari...

    Oh BTW... Reverse Engineering is a GIGO process... (Garbage In, Garbage Out....)
