We provide a strategy to restructure transaction processing systems. Such systems are core assets of most modern business operations, so their enhancement is crucial. Before large-scale renovation of transaction processing systems can take place, they need to be restructured. We argue that teleprocessing systems are unstructured by their nature. In this paper we approach the problems from a technical viewpoint and we report on the methods and tools that are necessary to bring structure in transaction systems.Categories and Subject Description: D.2.6 [Software Engineering] Programming Environments--Interactive; D.2.7 [Software Engineering] Distribution and Maintenance--Restructuring
