Hi All,

I am searching for reverse engineering tool for COBOL-VSAM programs.

Basically it should convert program to simple flow diagrams which further can be imported to VISIO.

Regards

It looks like you have to structure it manually.

If you want a tool that will take mainframe source code, analyse the code and structure it into a graphical representation in a pc environment, your only hope would be some Cobol workbench tool, and they don't come cheap, and would require assistance from your support organisation to install.

Some mainframe tools will take you halfway, structuring your modules into a (text-based) representation, from where you have to create the Visio diagrams yourself.

IBM RDz - though it's pay for product and I've not used it much personally. It does not have a direct portability to VISIO though, AFAIK, however, can show you a block diagram kind of flow.
