Hello "Chinna"-

Welcome to JavaRanch.

On your way in you may have missed that we have a policy on screen names here at JavaRanch. Since yours does not conform with it, please take a moment to change it, which you can do right here.

Enjoy your time here.

"Chandu",

Sorry, Ulf should have been more specific

We require display names to be two words: your first name, a space, then your last name. Fictitious names are not allowed.

We appreciate you canging your name, but can you please change it again to something valid?

thanks,
Dave.

"Complete Flow" is a pretty tricky term for a multi-threaded OO language. You might find UML to be a good way to get a handle on your project.
The ArgoUML tool claims to be able to create UML diagrams from source code. It has been under development for years - I have not tried a recent version.

UML
Javadocs
Config files such as web.xml is a good place to see what sort of requests will be made.

And be happy that it is jus java/jsp.

I took over an application that was using struts/spring/hibernate now AOP may be great and all but it is almost impossible to follow code flow when methods are inserted at runtime.

Good luck.
Gregory
