When the CLASSPATH environment variable is defined and a class is referenced using Java\’s import statement, a search for the class is launched:

  1. First search each directory listed in CLASSPATH.
  2. Then search the standard Java classes. In addition to the environment variable, Java users can specify a class path to the Java compiler using the -classpath command-line argument. Setting this option overrides any path specified in the CLASSPATH environment variable. If this option is used, the compiler does not append the location of the system classes to the end of this path.

Starting the Reverse Engineering Process

  1. Choose TOOLS->REVERSE ENGINEER from the menu. The Reverse Engineering dialog box is displayed.
  2. Make a choice from the Language drop down list. Your options are C++, Java or IDL. Select the language Java. The default setting for the language is C++
  3. Select UML from the Methodology drop down list. Currently UML is your only choice.
  4. Check the Recurse Subdirectory option if you want added directories (both Project and Additional Includes directories) to recurse subdirectories when creating new nodes. If a recursion is done, only directories with files matching the filter are added.
  5. Check the Display Files option if you want all the files displayed in the Project Directories tree. A appears next to all the project directories. Click this icon to expand the tree and display all the files in the directory

Setting Reference Classes

  1. Open the class diagram in the view area.
  2. Select the class you want to make a reference class.
  3. Right-click on the class symbol. A background utilities menu opens
  5. The selected class is now a reference class. You can also toggle the reference classes back to live classes by selecting ENUMERATED VALUES->REFERENCE CLASS->FALSE
