Is there any tool that can de compile afp objects (pagedef, formdef, etc) to source code ? I heard there are some product that can de compile object files from Cobol source.

An application team AFP source code libraries was deleted icon_sad.gif they are looking at if its possible to get source code back from binary object.

I know that it's possible to extract BMS maps from their load modules, I have a program to do just this (not sure if it can handle mapsets), so I'm sure you could create something that does the same for AFP objects.

It won't be trivial, and you might first check out if your site-backup procedures might have made volume backups, or if there are still HSM generated backups around.
