Re: [argouml-users] import sources for reverse engineering

Message Hello Markus
The FAQ is definitely a work in progress...and it will form the foundation of an
eventual users manual...so in the sense of Frequently Asked Questions some of the
information is not directly pertinent...the FAQ still does beg for some attention
though from the developers to answer some of the questions and to clarify, as you
have, about the status of some of the functions in Argo.

My questions still remain however:
If I need to activate the parser how do I do that? If it is activated what are
 the steps I need to take to make Argo RE function as desired...meaning class
diagrams with code?

Or does .9.2 not support any RE, even *.java classes, at all?

Thank you
Denny
