A Software Reverse Engineering Methodology for Legacy Modernization

This paper identified that Legacy Systems have embedded within them, a large investment which ranges from low level code items or objects through to higher level business objects; made by the systems developers and/or owners. Most organizations would at one time or the other be confronted with the problem of migrating their legacy applications to new platforms in order to preserve previous investments and the software engineering community had been confronted with the problem of understanding legacy systems. A reverse engineering methodology for modernization of legacy systems based on a transformation paradigm aimed at preserving capital investments and saving production and maintenance costs were described in this paper.
