Using Object-Oriented Algebraic Nets for the Reverse Engineering of Java Programs: A Case Study
The problem addressed in this paper is the following: How to use high-level Petri nets for the reverse engineering of implemented distributed applications ?. We present a reverse engineering methodology applied on a real (simple) Java applet based client/server application. First, starting from the Java program, several abstraction steps are described using the COOPNTWO formal specification language. Then, we present a brand new research that studies properties preservations during a refinement process.
