Legacy systems that were originally developed using the procedure-oriented approach can be reengineered according to the object-oriented paradigm by the process here proposed. Three phases are included in such process an object oriented reverse engineering phase, in which an object oriented analysis model of the legacy system is produced by Fusion/RE; a segmentation phase, in which the original code is segmented into object oriented methods, keeping the procedural language; and finally a transformation phase, in which the segmented code is transformed to an object oriented language by the Draco-Put machine. The application of this process to a real mechanic and electric car repair shop system, with 20.000 lines of source code, is described. Samples of the Java code obtained by transforming the original Clipper code are supplied.
