Abstract

This paper provides evidence that it is possible to migrate structured system designs to UML models. Legacy structured designs can be converted to object-oriented systems without losing data or functionality. The reason for choosing UML is that it is the new standard notation, which tries to build on and integrate object-oriented notations. Extracts from a case study are presented together with the proposed guidelines for the re-engineering process.
