We are employing ManSART, a software architecture recovery system, to reverse engineer large-scale legacy software systems. We semi-automatically recover software structure and functionality abstractions working primarily from source code. A major technical contribution for our work is that we interpret and integrate the results of localized, language-specific source code analyses in the context of large size systems written in multiple languages.
