The Design Navigator is a semi-automated design mining tool which reverse engineers LePUS3 design charts from Java™ 1.4 programs at any level of abstraction in reasonable time. We demonstrate the Design Navigator's step-wise charting process of Java Foundation Classes, generating decreasingly abstract charts of java.awt and discovering building-blocks in its design.
