Import Source Code

To import source code (reverse engineer) follow the steps below:

  1. In the Project Browser, select (or add) a diagram into which to import the Classes.
  2. Right-click on the diagram background to open the context menu and either:
  • Select the language to import from the Import from source file(s) submenu, or
  • Click on the Import Language drop-down arrow in the Code Generation toolbar and select the Import | Import xxx files menu option, where xxx represents the language to import.
  1. From the file browser that appears, select one or more source code files to import.
  2. Click on the Open button to start the import process.

As the import proceeds, Enterprise Architect provides progress information. When all files are imported, Enterprise Architect makes a second pass to resolve associations and inheritance relationships between the imported Classes.
