Generate Sequence Diagrams from Log Files
LogSequencer is a tool that reads your log files and generates Sequence Diagrams based on the logged information.
The generated sequence diagrams can be used for
- documentation of your application,
- debugging of your application logic,
- building up knowledge of an existing application.
Generated Sequence Diagram from Log-File
Include the generated Sequence Diagrams in your application documentation or your Use Cases. LogSequencer generated Sequence Diagrams can be saved a JPEG files and therefore easily imported into your documents.
As a developer it is sometimes difficult to trace and understand all the functionality (i.e. business logic) that fires when the user places a new order, changes an address, etc. LogSequencer generates Sequence Diagrams for these scenarios and it is easy for you to see what methods fire, in which order, and even with what data.
Imagine you start your new job and one of your first tasks is to make yourself familiar with an existing application you don't know at all. You ask for documentation but there is none. Sequence diagrams for different Use Cases would help you a lot. LogSequencer generates these diagrams for you and then it will be much easier for you to understand how objects in that application relate to each other, what methods are used to execute a specific Use Case, etc.
