The Reverse Java to Sequence Diagram Functionality does not seem to work at all.
This feature (or lack thereof) is a blocker as far as purchasing Visual Paradigm.
If I select a set of classes to reverse engineer into a class diagram, for example, they correctly appear in the left hand pane (see screenshot). However,
if I select a particular method, in one of the classes that I’ve reverse engineered, the reverse sequence still fails. See attached screenshot. Sometimes the whole VP application hangs!
In addition, there is no rhyme or reason as to the availability of operations if you select a class using the Tools->“Code Engineering”–>“Instant Reverse”–>“Java To Sequence Diagram…” .
It should be the case that if you select a file from which you intend to select a method to reverse into sequence diagram, the method should appear. If your claim is that your product recognize methods in a Java file, it should do so. – especially for what you charge for the product.
If you have some clear directions that always work for reverse sequence, please post them here. Or just add the feature to the community edition so that we can all suffer with this feature free of charge.
