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

Let me start by saying that a business rule is far more granular than a business decision, and that the two should never be confused. Today, it is an unfortunate fact that some vendors would have potential clients believe that there is synergy between business rules and business decisions. Perhaps this is because in an effort to differentiate one b...

Traceability is one of the lesser understood aspects of business analysis. It is indeed quite hard to maintain good traceability unless automated. This is why BABoK® warns us being theoretical about traceability. In this article, I would like to explain traceability concepts with help of an example. BABoK® definition of traceability: ...
