Hi there,

I'm trying to find some kind of visual solution to viewing control flow between classes and methods, to help with reverse engineering code / better understanding what's going on with code examples.

I've installed the Netbbeans UML plugin. however am finding it unclear about how to actually get up and running. The Netbeans help files have not helped much

Is there a simple way of getting this / a visual representation? Or any other solutions would be greatly received!

Cheers. .

Welcome to JavaRanch

The simplest method is pencil and paper, but you can probably use the debugger on your IDE to follow control flow.

Thank you

Ok - was hoping for some super dupa funky thing that makes it really clear. I'm sure something like that exists. It's just finding it eh. .

I guess you didn't ask uncle Google yet. ;)

Hope you'll find something useful.

I have gone the obvious Google route - and found nothing of note after a lengthy search. .
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
