4th International Workshop on OO Reengineering
Darmstadt (Germany),
Monday July 21st, 2003

Version 1.0 -- Latest Revision: July, 27th, 2003

What's Available at this Site


The ability to reengineer object-oriented legacy systems has become a vital matter in today's software industry. Early adopters of the object-oriented programming paradigm are now facing the problems of transforming their object-oriented "legacy" systems into full-fledged frameworks.

This Workshop on Object-Oriented Reengineering wants to gather people working on solutions for object-oriented legacy systems, and will be set up as a forum for exchanging experiences, discussing solutions, and exploring new ideas. We explicitly sollicit experience reports from the software industry as well as contributions from tool produces and methodology providers.

Areas of interests include, but are not limited to:

Intended Audience

The workshop is intended for software engineering professionals with experience in OO reengineering; either people who are actively engaged in reengineering projects, or people who develop methodologies and tools.
