Extracting Sequence Diagrams from Execution Traces
Houari A. Sahraoui, and
using Interactive Visualization
Proc. WCRE 2010.
We present a semi-automated approach for the reverse
engineering of UML sequence diagrams. Our approach
starts with a set of execution traces that are automatically
aligned in order to determine the common behavior.
Sequence diagrams are then extracted with an interactive
visualization, which allows navigating into execution traces
and performing extraction operations. We provide a
concrete illustration of our approach with a case study, and
show in particular that the resulting diagrams are more
meaningful and more compact than those extracted by
