Migrating - Planning diagrams

By jquinn ·
I've been paying a lot of attention to Tim Landgrave articles about migrating to .NET. We have a "well-architected three-tier system? that ?successfully decomposed the business and data layers into appropriate COM components. I did not design thissystem, but was lucky enough to join the project well into the development of the system.

I would like to chart our current system using Visio com/ole template, and then draw the architecture for both of the options discussed in this article to begin prepping for a conversion to .NET (starting with the .asp layer). I am having trouble finding samples/articles on how to properly graph our architecture using Visio (or any) tool, and I am not confident that the images I am creating are properly done.

It would help a lot to see a sample of such a document (a com based architecture with actual business components, the database and applications shown). Dose anyone have any suggestions for books or a web site that might help me? I would love to see samples of design documents depicting the suggestions which Tim has in this article. Perhaps an article about using these types of tools could be considered for the future.
