General J2EE: Looking for a tool...

  1. Looking for a tool... (4 messages)

    Hey guys -

    I just started at this company and I walked into a bunch of code that is kind of hard to follow. I was wondering if anyone knew of any tool that could take java code and produce class diagrams with linkage?

    Thanks,
    jason

    I don't know that any of these will read how the classes use each other.

    But Poseidon for UML will reverse engineer the classes. That's at Gentleware.com and there is a free version.

    Borland's Together also comes in a free version.

    If you have a budget, both of these tools have more feature-rich siblings.

    Or you could look at Embarcadero's Describe.

    Hi Jason,

    another (MDA) tool with such harvesting features is "ArcStyler" on http://www.io-software.com/.

    If I were you and wanted to see whats going on inside the classes I would use a debugger to step through code. atleast gives you more idea of how business is modeled then I would take up on class relationships.

    You can try CodeLogic. It generates UML Classes, Sequence and Execution Flow Diagrams.
