Code-based reverse analysis 

Dear all, 

Could you please help me with the following question: 

Can a flow-diagram for a processes be generated based on a binary-code(deployed and running on server), which is decompiled to high-level language ? This seems to be the only option to me to produce the flow diagram, since I have no any documentation on the software to describe its flow. 

Best regards, and thank you for your comments.

Re: Code-based reverse analysis 
I never had to de-compile anything to create a flow chart. I first worked with someone on the application showing me all the screens, menus, reports, etc and went on from there. I Looked at the first thing - what started the application  ... then used system tools to track what other stuff that program was calling and database usage ... I could then write a system flow and list everything that was being used on each module. Look for Original source code somewhere ... in some directory or old back-up ... even contact the programmer that left .... Have Fun.

Most IT jobs have a clear, specific job description and career path. However, the business analyst career path tends to vary, as do the descriptions from job to job. The business analyst career path is best. Because, “There are career tracks that zigzag back and forth between IT and business. Someone might start as a business analyst, and the...
