The reverse engineering of object-oriented legacy systems presents a number of problems typically encountered in large-scale legacy systems: the lack of overview and the need to focus on interesting parts. To help in reverse engineering large object-oriented legacy systems, we proposed a hybrid approach combining the immediate appeal of visualisations with the scalability of metrics. However, our approach lacked of a methodology that guides the reverse engineer. In this paper we present a first methodology that we developed from our industrial experiments.
