IT System - reverse engineering on code to obtain the Functioanal flow diagram 

Dear all, 

This is my first posting here. I'm a IT System analyst at a Software company. 

I'm asked to write a documentation for a service project which was implemented before I started working 

at my company and the developer who was in charge of the project no longer working at our company. The problem is that the project was implemented and the code was deployed at our clients server. It works fine, however there is no documentation for the service (no service flow explaining the processes). I'm asked to produce this documentation, and for that I apparently will have to do decompilation of the code(with a developer) and try to extract a knowledge so that a flow diagram can be produced, but decompilation doesn't always bring the original source code.  How do you think, producing a flow from a decompiled binary code seems migh work ?

 

Regards, 

Murad
