TitleXML Encoded Reverse Engineering of Java to UML
AuthorsC.R. Russell, R.G. Dewar
AbstractThis paper introduces an XML encoded reverse engineering transformation from Java to the Unified Modeling Language (UML). We explore the relationship between an XML based representation of Java, namely JavaML, and an XML based representation of UML, XMI. A series of XSLT templates are then described that reverse engineer Java to UML Class diagrams. By exploiting XML technologies, this approach demonstrates the opportunities for simple, standardised and adaptable conversions between code and design information, within a software development and maintenance environment.
