Legacy applications are still widely spread. If a need to change deployment or update its functionality arises, it becomes difficult to estimate the performance impact of such modifications due to absence of corresponding models. In this paper, the authors present an extendable integrated environment based on Eclipse developed in the scope of the Q-ImPrESS project for reverse engineering of legacy applications (in C/C++/Java). The Q-ImPrESS project aims at modeling quality attributes at an architectural level and allows for choosing the most suitable variant for implementation of a desired modification.
